Research Assistant / Associate

Knowledge Media Institute (KMi)
£29,301 - £38,183, Ref: 13098
Based in Milton Keynes
Temporary contract untiil 31st December 2018

The Knowledge Media Institute (KMi) is looking for a Research Assistant or a Research Associate to work jointly on two EU funded projects.

The HUB4FIRE project will strengthen and coordinate the work done by on-going and upcoming projects, focusing on Next Generation Internet Experimentation (NGI-E), with the goal to transform the current NGI-E setting into an increasingly dynamic, collaborative and participatory Innovation Ecosystem capable of effectively supporting and coordinating activities across the whole NGI landscape and provide a collaborative platform.

The Up2U project is to bridge the gap between secondary schools and higher education and research by better integrating formal and informal learning scenarios, and adapting both the technology and the methodology that students will most likely be facing in universities. The project will focus on the context of secondary schools, which provide secondary education between the ages of 11 and 19, after primary school and before higher education.

Research Assistant / Associate

Knowledge Media Institute (KMi)
£29,301 - £38,183, Ref: 13099
Based in Milton Keynes
Temporary contract until 31st December 2019

The Knowledge Media Institute (KMi) is looking for a Research Assistant or a Research Associate (depending on qualification), to work on an EU funded project – Up2U.

The project will be focusing on the context of secondary schools, often referred to as high schools, which provide secondary education between the ages of 11 and 19 depending on the country, after primary school and before higher education.

The learning context from the perspective of the students is the intersection of formal and informal spaces, a dynamic hybrid learning environment where synchronous activities meet in both virtual and real dimensions. For this, we propose to develop an innovative Up to University (Up2U) ecosystem – based on proven experiences in higher education and big research – that facilitates open, more effective and efficient co-design, co-creation, and use of digital content, tools and services adapted for personalized learning and teaching of high school students preparing for university.
