We are recruiting four, six-month Creative Economy Engagement Fellows to start in January 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter. The project aims to explore data about creative industry workers and audiences in order to understand patterns (for example of diversity and inequality) within the sector. The four Creative Economy Engagement Fellows will each work with one partner organization to devise and implement data exploration that is relevant to partners, with supervision and training from the proposing team. You will work in partnership with organizations in the creative economy and will spend time in those organizations. Partnerships can be set up by the Fellows themselves or by the project team.

This is an excellent opportunity for recent postdocs to engage in training, develop skills, and gain experience of working with creative industries.These roles will be based at: • Sheffield Methods Institute and Digital Society Network at the University of Sheffield (contacts Mark Taylor and Helen Kennedy)

• School of Media & Communications, University of Leeds (contact Kate Oakley)

• Digital Creativity Labs, University of York (contact Darren Reed).
