Research Associate

Vacancy Ref: 090068
Salary, Grade 7, £36,382 - £40,927 per annum

This position is full time with funding up to 31 August 2025.

We have an opportunity for a Research Associate to make a leading contribution to an AHRC project ‘Digital Knowledge: A New Framework for Digital Epistemic Virtues’ working with Dr J Adam Carter (PI, Glasgow/COGITO Epistemology Research Centre) in collaboration with Prof Jesper Kallestrup (Co-I, University of Aberdeen). The successful candidate will produce high-quality research in accordance with the project’s aims (see project overview below).

Project overview: ‘Digital Knowledge: A New Framework for Digital Epistemic Virtues’

The three core research questions this project will investigate are:

Q1: How should our epistemological theorising respond to the influx of cognitive offloading, and associated risks of misinformation online?

Q2: Are there such things as 'digital' epistemic virtues and vices, and if so, how are these related to more traditional intellectual virtues?

Q3: What is needed to convert digitally stored information into digital knowledge, and how might we best communicate, and educate for, such knowledge?

Closing date : 27 July 2022
