Research and social media intern in Co-creation and Human Flourishing

£27,592 - £27,592
 

Job Description

You might have seen headlines in the media talking about the pressure many students feel – going to university should be a positive experience, but research and student feedback repeatedly tells us that many students feel stressed, worried, lonely or overwhelmed. Or maybe you have experienced this yourself during your time as a student (or seen a friend go through some of these emotions). At the same time, many staff members are also reporting that they feel under pressure or experience stress. These are not simple problems to solve, but with the Flourishing Project, we are on a mission to make Queen Mary a place where all students and staff flourish and feel included regardless of their background and seniority.



To help us achieve this, the Flourishing Project brings students and staff together to work collaboratively to understand how we can create spaces that support human flourishing and enable students and staff to thrive and innovate. Research to date has found that co-creating curriculum and learning experiences across students and staff leads to greater belonging, engagement and connection.  Students and educators describe the joy of engaging in meaningful work and the result of creating better learning experiences or developing the curriculum drawing on student voice and understanding.

The purpose of this role is to emerge understanding of how the SEED award is supporting co-creation and culture change across the institution and the potential benefits of this work, as well as supporting the promotion and development of co-creation and the narratives we use to talk about it. Further:    




  • To work closely with colleagues to research change created through co-creation.

  • To support research and evaluation by using qualitative research methods such as interview, focus group and creative enquiry methodologies.

  • To contribute to the dissemination of the project through social media, academic publications and conference presentations.

This is an exciting opportunity to join CyberASAP Phase 1.A Project aiming to address Risk Assessment in Transactions under Security Threat.



The financial losses in UK online banking due to fraud annually amount to almost 2 billion pounds. With the losses in online trading due to fake accounts, stolen credentials and information leaks the figure becomes truly astronomical. The design of security solutions requires complex expertise - understanding of the processes within transactional systems under threat, knowledge of potential adversaries and their malicious behaviour, justified choice of suitable tools for detection, neutralization and prevention, and their proper configuration. The need for software for modelling the security infrastructure, estimating the security risks and analyzing the impact of the solutions on security is extremely high due to the complexity of the task and the impossibility of demonstrating the solutions experimentally. this role is for the development of a desktop software application that:




  • Model transactions under security threats.

  • Design of security architecture and behaviour analysis through simulated transactions

  • Calculate the security risks based on parameters of security analytics.

  • Determination of the impact of security infrastructure on risks
