This role will be based at the School of Media and Communication, University of Leeds. There are two more opportunities for Creative Economy Engagement Fellows to work with our partner organisations to devise and implement data exploration, available at:

  • Digital Creativity Labs, University of York;
  • Sheffield Methods Institute and the Digital Society Network at the University of Sheffield.
