Applications are invited for the post of ‘Research Fellow: Value Network Innovation in Next-Generation Storytelling’ to join the School of Management at Royal Holloway University of London as part of the multi-disciplinary StoryFutures project.

‘Value Network Innovation’ is one of four main StoryFutures project themes, helping companies understand how network-based strategies, structures and process can be developed to maximise innovation related to next-generation storytelling processes, products and/or services. The post holder will contribute to the development of innovative (digital) business models and value propositions – working with project partners to both understand their current business models and value propositions and, over time, helping implement and assess innovations developed as part of StoryFutures. In addition, the post holder will also contribute to work related to the dynamics and development of creative networks – tackling issues of geographical dispersion and the challenges of realising new value creation through collaboration.

Micro Machines PhD Scholarship

We are currently recruiting a full PhD scholarship as part of the StoryFutures research team, based in the Geography Department. The PhD will explore how creative and immersive industry micro-businesses and freelancers can develop new products, what resources they need to achieve this (financial, networked, collective, social and geographical), and what value does this bring to the cluster as a whole (defined along similar thematic lines).

The studentship includes a stipend of £16,777 (plus fees at home/EU rates) for three years. It will start in January 2019 or as close as possible thereafter.

Full details of the PhD project and scholarship are available here.
