Technologist-in-Residence at The Digital Hub – Apply by 15/04/22
The Digital Hub is offering an exciting and unique three-to-six-month residency opportunity to a professional innovative technologist, commencing in May 2022. The closing date for applications is Friday, 15th April 2022.
The aim of the residency is to enable the technologist to develop a better understanding, within The Digital Hub ecosystem, of the Internet of Things (IOT) and data analytics through a collaborative process of engagement with communities such as local residents, technology and creative start‐ups and businesses, academia and other organisations.
The residency will focus on utilising existing and introducing new sensor technologies on The Digital Hub campus. It will look to collect and analyse data relating to the health and wellbeing of the local community and to the environmental sustainability of the activities conducted in The Digital Hub.
The technologist-in-residence will include a focus on collaborative, community-oriented programming, working with local residents of all ages, school children, community groups and organisations. The hope is that the work to gather, analyse and publish data will stimulate an informed discussion around health wellbeing and sustainability of the city environment.
The residency could have a research-based element. The technologist could use the process of research to create the experience of the residency, or to create solutions and alternative approaches to issues arising from The Digital Hub’s digital innovation community generally.
The nature of the residency will evolve from the successful applicant’s proposal, and The Digital Hub takes an open and flexible approach in this regard.
The technologist-in-residence will receive:
- Office/studio space on The Digital Hub campus.
- Access to The Digital Hub facilities 24/7 and on-site car parking.
- A fee of €10,000.
- A budget of up to €5,000 to support project related costs.
- Access to a cutting-edge community in the field of innovation and technologies as well as to the vibrant Dublin 8 community.
- Access to networking opportunities with innovators and entrepreneurs.
- The support of the DHDA staff to broker introductions with innovative startups and the Dublin 8 ecosystem.
This is a two‐stage process.
Stage one requires a written application (details here) which should be submitted on or before Friday 15th April 2022 at 5pm.
Stage two will be an interview, which may be conducted virtually or in-person at the offices of The Digital Hub.
The successful applicant will be chosen by a panel comprising representatives from The Digital Hub and external experts.
The Digital Hub is committed to a policy of equal opportunity and encourage applications under all ten grounds as set out in our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy.
