We are advertising for two exciting full-time, permanent academic posts. These involve working across the Centre for Research in Digital Education, the MSc in Digital Education and the Edinburgh Futures Institute.

Both posts will be based in the thriving Centre for Research in Digital Education in the Moray House School of Education at Edinburgh University. They will involve developing research programmes in key areas, teaching on the highly successful MSc in Digital Education, and working across the university to help build a new and innovative interdisciplinary programme in Education as part of the Edinburgh Futures Institute.

We are looking for two great academics in a couple of areas.


Digital Education (Data and Society)

For this post you should have teaching talent and a track record of strong critical work in areas relating to computational data and education, with an emphasis on the societal impact of these.

You should have a growing research portfolio in the critical study of data and digital technologies in education, and in the social, institutional and pedagogical impact of data-driven technologies. Areas of interest may include, for example, critical perspectives on educational AI, data ethics and algorithmic bias, data-driven decision making or data-driven policy futures. Your teaching expertise should include teaching in computational digital methods and supervision of students using quantitative methods for research at Masters level.

Digital Education (Education Futures)

Here we are looking for a talented and ambitious individual to develop teaching and research relating to the future of educational policy, pedagogy and infrastructure, with a focus on creative, interdisciplinary methods.

You should have a growing research portfolio in education futures, which may include critical work on interdisciplinarity, project and challenge-led education, anticipatory and futures methodologies and creative approaches to the design of educational research, practice and infrastructure. Your teaching expertise should include teaching online and at postgraduate level.
