Applications are sought for a committed R&D Fellow to work with Paul Hibbert and Shiona Chillas conducting research for the AHRC funded InGAME project. The purpose of InGAME is to increase the scale and value of the Dundee videogames cluster. We achieve this by developing a responsive model of industry-academia R&D collaboration; de-risking creative experimentation and commercialisation; delivering organisational growth, diversification and innovation opportunities; disseminating novel learning, actionable insights and best practice; and demonstrating future applications of game tools, techniques and technologies.  


This role sits within the School of Management at the University of St Andrews, with significant participation at InGAME’s Dundee HQ being intrinsic to the role. The post will be focused on research to evaluate and articulate InGAME’s processes, project and its outputs, and the nature and effect of its outcomes.  


The successful applicant will have (or be near to completion of) a PhD in Business and Management, Human Geography, Sustainable Development or other relevant social science discipline, with expertise in qualitative research methods and contributing to academic outputs.  


The post is available for 12 months starting 1 September 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter.
