The best digital storytelling opportunity ever?

Spanning the UK and Cape Town, University of Surrey Digital World Research Centre is advertising a Research Fellowship in Digital Storytelling. This could be the best digital storytelling opportunities I’ve ever heard of because:

- you’ll get to model and produce digital story forms that are most suitable for the intended local audiences/producers/participants by working with ethnographers and technologists
- you’ll work in the UK and Cape Town, along South Africa’s Wild Coast
- you’ll benefit from work already done by the university’s StoryBank project in India
- you’ll get to work with Prof David Frohlich, pioneer of Audiophotography and a former HP Labs Europe innovator
- it’s a well-funded post
- you’ll be making a valuable contribution to the global digital storytelling community

In the email from Prof Frohlich, he said the person appointed would work on a project:
“designed to scale up the StoryBank system in South Africa, with a view to bringing out a mobile digital storytelling toolkit for NGOs.”

Closing date for applications: 24th June 2010
Interview board: 9th July 2010
Salary is up to £32,620 p.a.

Because of the way the University of Surrey’s Jobs website is configured, I can’t give you a direct link to this role, instead, I’d ask you to look about halfway down this page: https://jobs.surrey.ac.uk and click on the Research Fellow in Digital Storytelling link.
