South West Creative Technology Network is recruiting for 24 Automation Fellows. This is a flexible, part-time paid (15k) opportunity for people from industry, academia, as well as those in the early stages of their careers who are interested in the future of Automation. We will support fellows during a 10 month programme to think deeply about the potentials, challenges and opportunities in this area. This is a unique and exciting chance to step back from commercial, academic or career pressures, and focus on new and innovative areas of research, exploration and collaboration.

Automation is changing the way we live. It is increasingly important within the creative industries as well as manufacturing, retail, financial services, and healthcare, to name just a few sectors. Automation could be seen as the ‘quiet’ revolution - working in the background to assist in creative processes, gradually transforming agriculture through robotics, or re-imagining how we search the internet. We are looking for people to explore the frontiers of automation technology and its applications, to ask: What already exists? What's new and what's good in automation? Where are the gaps in the market? What are the challenges? What opportunities are out there? What are the possibilities? Come and join us as a paid Fellow.  

Fellowships run from April 2019 through to January 2020, with most time commitment required in the first three months (April to June 2019).
