Closing date 22 January 2018

Read more about this role

The Centre for International Human Resource Management at Cambridge Judge Business School, University of Cambridge, acts as a platform for research and engagement with organisations, academia and policy in the UK and across the world. Its primary focus is to understand, promote, and engage with people who are focused on improving the effectiveness of their organisation, their team, or themselves. The Centre is based in central Cambridge.

The Research Associate will play a key role in the Next Generation Converged Digital Infrastructure project funded by EPSRC and BT and is a collaborative partnership with the Universities of Lancaster, Bristol, Surrey and Cambridge. Organisations are undergoing a radical transformation as new technologies, particularly the development of genuine autonomic networks, shift the nature of work and of workers and pose major questions for the sustainability of the infrastructure, the management of change in the service offering and the importance of the human-cognitive element in sustainability. The Research Associate will focus on three cardinal capabilities that provide the fundamental architecture for sustainability within organisations.

Candidates should have (or be close to obtaining) a PhD in organisational behaviour, psychology, engineering, computer science, or relevant discipline. Experience relevant to developing case material, qualitative analysis, work in AI and machine learning and their organisational implications is essential for this role. The researcher's expertise includes knowledge of organisational design, culture, employee cognition and motivation, and new technology. Appreciation and knowledge of the challenges in telecommunication networks is desirable. In addition, very good communication and writing skills are prerequisites for this role.

This is a fixed term appointment for two years in the first instance. Our preference is to appoint someone with a PhD in hand, but successful candidates at Research Associate level who have not been awarded their PhD by the appointment date will be under-appointed as a Research Assistant on a salary of £29,515 per annum. Upon award of the PhD the individual will be promoted to Research Associate.
