  • Module Leader: Online GEGD MSc Digital Transformation

    Code: (BL0076)

    The Hull University Business School develops people and practices for a fast-changing and interconnected world. The school is an international community which, to echo our vision and mission, behaves with friendliness, openness, responsibility and integrity. The University delivers an online portfolio of master’s degree programmes under the brand name Hull Online. These programmes are delivered in association with a collaborative partner, Cambridge Education Group (CEG), who assists with recruitment, marketing, course design and course build. There are currently 6 programmes in the online portfolio and the University has ambitious plans to add several more. All programmes are taught on a flexible, part-time basis over two years within a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), Canvas. Students can study the same degree as they would on campus without interrupting income and career progression. Programmes are delivered wholly online.

    This post is for an academic to develop and lead the “Customer Led Disruption in a Digital Era” module. The module aims to introduce students to how social media can drive insights into online customer behaviour, assist organisations into providing customer classifications and gain insights into their own approach in steering their digital transformation. The module aims to provide students with a comprehensive introduction to the channels and tools related to digital marketing and social media by taking an information systems management orientation while also exploring ethical & compliance-oriented dimensions of social media data analysis. It starts by exploring digital marketing and social media as a foundation, as these channels now account for the largest proportion of marketing spend and analysis. The consumer-centric approach begins by understanding the difference between general and online consumer behaviour. Students will learn how to develop segmentation analysis using analytical, behavioural and psychological tools leading to advanced ‘persona’ development to help steer their strategy as they seek to transform organisations through digital technologies. It is vital that organisations are able to understand online customer journeys and the digital touchpoints which relate to their goods and services.   Students will learn how to develop complex online marketplace maps which consider how customer journeys can be disrupted and how by using innovative approaches they can offer greater customer value through the development of online value propositions. Customers leave a huge digital footprint which can offer unique insights if data is harvested and analysed in a strategic way. Students will be able to consider various techniques which will help them assess new business models as they seek to transform organisations.

    A background in information systems, social media analytics and digital businesses is desired. Applicants will have a sound knowledge of sophisticated qualitative and quantitative methods in these areas. The post-holder will initially develop content for the module (at 0.4 FTE for six months) and then act as module leader when the module is live in delivery (0.2 FTE for 15 weeks). Please note, as this is an online programme, candidates do not have to be based in Hull.

    For informal enquiries, please contact Prof. Nishikant Mishra, Subject Group Head for the Logistics and Management Systems subject group (Nishikant.Mishra@hull.ac.uk) or Programme Director, Dr. Dionysios Demetis (D.Demetis@hull.ac.uk)

We have strong links with applied research groups at York University, and with clinical colleagues and networks across the region. Our team consists of clinicians, researchers and educators and includes two existing GP Portfolio Fellows.

    This full-time role will be split equally between an academic teaching and scholarship role at the medical school and a clinical role in a local general practice (through an honorary contract), or for a suitable candidate, part time (50%) at the medical school alongside an existing clinical role.  

    The new Portfolio Fellow will work as an integral member of the team to deliver our core goal in driving primary care excellence. Individual work plans will be agreed with the successful candidate but it is anticipated they will include opportunities to support clinically-oriented educational and research activities linked to workforce development and evaluation. The Portfolio Fellow will have dedicated time to develop their own professional development plan; and be supported to access the SAPC (Society for Academic Primary Care) mentorship scheme.  

    The post offers an exciting opportunity for a general practitioner interested in developing extended roles for a portfolio career to join an innovative team at a key development phase for the medical school and the wider primary care community.

    This exciting post is part of a three year project funded by Marie Curie to report on the experience of death and dying in the UK today. The project is a collaborative one between King’s College London, University of Cambridge, and University of Hull, and consists of three areas of work: 

    1. A post-bereavement survey of bereaved carers to describe, and examine variations in the outcomes, experiences, and use of services by people affected by death, dying and bereavement in the UK.

    2. The mapping of care and services available to people affected by death, dying and bereavement across the UK

    3. The identification, synthesis and analysis of metrics which describe quality of care for people affected by death, dying and bereavement at a UK population level.

    The post-holder will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with the wider project team, including internationally-leading palliative care researchers. The post-holder will focus mainly on the first and second of these areas of work, but will also be required to work flexibly across the project, including contributing to the third area of work, and to dissemination of project findings. 

    The post-holder will have awareness of existing data sources on care and provision of health or social services, and experience of qualitative and quantitative research data collection and analysis, of contributing to scientific publications, and of collaborative working in research.

  • PDRA in Gravity Current Dynamics

    Code: (AE0205)

    Applications are invited for Postdoctoral Research Associate position on the dynamics of sediment-laden gravity currents; the post is part of the University of Leeds, University of Hull and University College Dublin joint industry project the Turbidites Research Group (www.trg.leeds.ac.uk).  

    The PDRA will join the TRG, based at the world-leading Energy and Environment Institute, University of Hull, working directly with Dr Robert Dorrell and indirectly with TRG Principal Investigator Prof. W.D. McCaffrey (University of Leeds) and Co-Investigators Dr L. Amy (University College Dublin) and Dr A.D. McArthur (University of Leeds). Through the post the PDRA will seek to develop new theoretical and numerical models to describe the interplay between Coriolis (and centrifugal) induced cross-slope secondary flow and downslope flow dynamics. The research into the dynamics of downslope sediment-laden gravity currents, i.e. turbidity currents, and cross-slope flows, i.e. thermohaline flows, is motivated by the need to understand sedimentary records of palaeo-environments. There will be the opportunity to validate models against experiments and real-world data. 

    In the Energy and Environment Institute the PDRA will join a dynamic Environmental Fluid Dynamics group led by Dr Robert Dorrell, >20 PhD, PDRA and staff, which covers fundamental fluid mechanics, renewable energy, environmental and industrial flows. The post is for an initial 2-years and has no teaching duties; however, the PDRA will be involved in mentoring PhD students and supported in independent research development to enhance their professional experience. Further, the PDRA will engage with, and be given opportunity to support, wider fluid dynamics research across the TRG partner universities.

    The successful applicant will have extensive experience in theoretical or numerical models of sediment transport or gravity-current dynamics. The candidate should have (or be about to obtain) a PhD in mathematics, engineering, oceanography, or a related discipline. The candidate will have an established, or developing, research profile, including peer-reviewed publications. Experience in supervision and mentoring of graduate students, and experimental fluid dynamics, would be advantageous. 

    Specific Duties and Responsibilities of the post

    The PDRA will develop theoretical and numerical models of gravity current and cross-slope flow interaction.  Through the research the PDRA will interface with larger interdisciplinary teams: the Turbidites Research Group and the Environmental Fluid Dynamics group. The position requires expertise in theoretical or numerical fluid dynamics. In addition, the position requires excellent scientific communication, presentation and writing skills, as well as problem-solving skills.

    In your covering letter please refer directly to the criteria given in the person specification below. Applications are assessed by the selection panel according to these criteria.

    For any questions, or to discuss this role further, please contact Dr Robert Dorrell r.dorrell@hull.ac.uk
