As part of an Innovate UK funded Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) between United Kingdom Antarctic Heritage Trust (UKAHT), Anglia Ruskin University (StoryLab, Cambridge School of Creative Industries & the Business School) and British Antarctic Survey (BAS) you’ll lead a project designed to create an immersive digital experience which brings to life remote British heritage in Antarctica allowing users to explore these remarkable places, people and stories.
Although you’ll be employed by Anglia Ruskin, you’ll be predominantly based at UKAHT’s offices in Cambridge. (NB During Covid-19 pandemic conditions there will be a need for flexible working.)
You’ll experience first-hand, and subsequently embed, multimodal stories from content rich archives as well as delivering a fully immersive 3D artefact. You’ll receive training in the production of multimodal storytelling, exploring the role that immersive technology and archives will have in accessing and preserving non-linear narratives in the future.
The KTP project will present you with a unique set of challenges and opportunities - namely the multidisciplinary expertise required to bring together creative, technical and commercial aspects. You’ll have access to leading edge expertise in storytelling and immersive technology that will be managed and exploited to maximise outputs and embed new capabilities.
By the end of the project you’ll have gained a unique and valuable experience in managing collaboration and linkages between academia and business. You’ll also have acquired invaluable project management experience and business exposure, and have developed into a highly employable, business leader.
