The University of East London is one of the most diverse and vibrant universities in the global capital. Our pioneering and forward-thinking vision is making a positive and significant impact to the communities we serve, inspiring both our staff and students to reach their full potential.

Born in 1898 to serve the skills needs of the 2nd industrial revolution, the University of East London has commenced Year 3 of its transformational 10-year Vision 2028 strategic plan led by our Vice-Chancellor & President, Professor Amanda Broderick, to advance Industry 4.0 careers-1st education. We have a clear route-map to provide a springboard for the jobs and opportunities of the future; drive diversity in the 4.0 talent pipeline - working in partnership to promote talent wherever it is found; and to create an inclusive and sustainable, green future.

We are looking for a research associate to undertake the directed/supervised research tasks and activities.

The application of artificial intelligence (AI) in product development has enormous potential to lead improvements in efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

The proposed research will focus on companies in the technology and manufacturing sectors, as these industries have been at the forefront of artificial intelligence implementation. The sample size will consist of at least 100 companies that have implemented artificial intelligence in their product development process, and a control group of 100 companies that have not implemented artificial intelligence in their product development process.

The proposed research will be conducted in two phases. In the first phase, the dataset will be collected and cleaned (preliminary analysis). In the second phase, the data will 4 / 5 be scrutinised using the statistical techniques (full analysis). The overall length of the research will take approximately 5-6 months to complete.

We are looking for forward-thinking, innovative, curious, high-energy, self-aware people who are passionate about making a positive difference and who will thrive in an inclusive and diverse University community who are never not moving forwards. 

So, if you are looking to build your career in a dynamic, inclusive and performance-focused team and are inspired by our environment and drive for success, we want you to apply to join the University of East London. We are looking for inspirational individuals who have a passion to make a positive difference to people and planet, creating a more sustainable future for everyone.
