together broadcasters, policy-makers, independent producers and trainers in
contributing to the future shaping of public service broadcasting in the
digital age. You will assist the project team (Dr James Bennett, Paul Kerr
and Dr Niki Strange [Sussex University]) on the AHRC project, and undertake
relevant teaching duties on our postgraduate and undergraduate courses.
