The Oxford Internet Institute (OII) is the world’s leading centre for research into the role of the Internet in individual, collective and institutional behaviour, seeking to understand the various social factors that are shaping the Internet and their implications for our networked economy and society. We are looking for an Internet Research and Collaboration officer to help identify the most pertinent academic research at the University of Oxford and universities across the UK to support projects and priorities of the newly established Connected Digital Economy Catapult (CDEc). By supporting collaboration between academia and business and industry, the collaboration officer will help Oxford play a valuable role as a strategic partner to the CDEc.

The CDEc is one of five Catapult Centres being established by the UK’s Technology Strategy Board to encourage new and sustainable ways for digital media and content providers to generate value from their products, help to find ways for whole business sectors to embrace digital services, and to help business to take advantage of the opportunities arising from the way information about our environment and physical objects is becoming available in the digital domain.

This is an exciting opportunity for an individual with expertise in Internet research, applications and infrastructures and experience of working in industry to identify and build collaborations with leading businesses in the digital, Internet, and creative industries and to promote and drive the development of agreed inter-disciplinary research themes that can support the vitality of the UK’s developing digital economy. The successful candidate will have commercial awareness of the drivers, constraints and working practices of industry sectors and a demonstrable track record of partnering activities linking academia, business and industry.

Based in the heart of Oxford, this full-time position is available from August 2013, for two years in the first instance.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. The application form and further details, including a job description and selection criteria, are available on the Oxford University's recruitment website.
