Great Opportunity Coming Soon! Researcher in Residence Programme with the Digital Catapult


Coming Soon! Researcher in Residence Programme

Research Councils UK and the Digital Catapult Centre will soon invite applications for their researcher in residence programme. The next call will open in October. The following information is subject to change.

This enables researchers to spend time at the Digital Catapult Centre within one of the following two residency schemes:

  • junior residencies, which are based at the centre or a relevant user organisation full or near full-time and enable early-career researchers to develop their existing research interests within a user-led project in conjunction with the centre, whilst also feeding back user experience to the digital economy research community;
  • Senior residencies, which are based at the centre on a full-time basis or via a series of short secondments and enable researchers with a significant track record in relevant areas to shape projects, provide thought leadership, and drive the creation of new activities.

Projects must address one or more of the catapult’s current challenge areas, namely closed organisational data, personal data, creative content and the internet of things.

Applicants must have a contract of employment at a UK university or be PhD students who have submitted their thesis by the closing date, Sunday 6 December 2015.

Residencies provide a budget of up to £25,000 each to cover expenses, including travel and accommodation.

Timeline: The closing date is 23:59 on Sunday 6 December 2015, with decisions due by the end of February 2016. Successful applicants are expected to commence their residencies within three months of award. The programme will run for three years, with two funding calls each year. The next round will open for applications in the autumn.
