Research Associate in Data-Driven Video Stories
We’re looking for an outstanding interdisciplinary researcher for a 1-year fixed term position as a Research Associate on the ‘Perspective Media: Personalized Video Storytelling for Data Engagement’ project.

As the successful candidate, you will be at the forefront of developments that exploit the power of storytelling for engagement and literacy with data, and the potential of data analytics to reveal new opportunities for storytelling. You will conduct user-centered research with media production partners, data providers and audience members to investigate: cutting-edge techniques for presenting data in personalised video stories and novel processes and tools for making interactive video content that is adaptive to viewer data. The post is funded by the EPSRC and is a collaborative project between the University of York, BBC R&D, The Open Data Institute, The Digital Catapult, City of York Council and BAFTA-winning immersive media producer Catherine Allen.
