Are you or is someone you know a tech expert who could manage our IT and Geospatial & Visual Methods lab?
Royal Holloway, University of London (home of the ICT4D Centre) is hiring a dynamic tech expert to manage our IT and our new and exciting Geospatial & Visual Methods Lab. This is to support research and teaching (undergraduate, Masters (including our ICT4D Masters) and PhD). The role is full-time, permanent and has regular hours while at the same time offering huge potential to get involved in our ICT4D work, as well as with lots of fascinating digital geography projects in the Geography department. The department is known as a very collegial workplace and the ICT4D Centre team hopes tech experts with an interest in ICT4D will apply and also become part of our team.
We support and celebrate diversity and welcome applications from all parts of the community. If you would like to discuss the role informally, you can also get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Information and Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D) Centre at Royal Holloway, University of London (linked to the UNESCO Chair in ICT4D) brings together 10 academics and 13 doctoral researchers plus Masters students. Colleagues come from the departments of Geography and Computer Science, the School of Management, and the Information Security Group and we see our diverse approaches as a core strength. One of the leading centres for ICT4D research worldwide, it was also ranked 7th among global Think Tanks in Science and Technology (Uni of Pennsylvania/Wharton School, 2015). We cultivate partnerships across the world (e.g. recently UNICEF, UNCTAD, Observatorio de Favelas in Rio, CDI, Akatu, DFID, Deutsche Welle, Streetinvest etc) while benefiting from London as a culturally diverse city and Tech-Hub with a community of over 400 ICT4D practitioners and researchers. We are fully committed to producing research of the highest quality for, and in collaboration with, marginalized people in the global South and North.
