New Job!

Hello from the Internet Governance Forum in Vilnius!

More of that when it kicks off properly tomorrow, but for now Pangloss is delighted to announce that from 1 January 2011, she will be taking up a new post as Chair of E-Governance at Strathclyde University in Glasgow.

Although she is sad to say goodbye to Sheffield, this is not only a homecoming to Scotland but also something of a dream job: a "research leadership" John Anderson Chair where for the first three years at least, the job is dedicated to forging cross-university and external interdisciplinary links to build IT-related research at Strathclyde.

I will also be taking over, with existing colleagues, charge of Strathclyde's already world-leading LLM and distance learning programmes in IT and Telecoms law: watch this space as we plan to expand, rebrand and add new modules to these already well-known enterprises.

I will also be actively seeking to build a community of PhDs and postdocs in IT law-related areas and looking for interesting new collaborators to build up funded and sponsored research . If you are interested in any of this, do let me know! Themes especially relevant to Strathclyde are likely to include Human Rights and the Internet, Internet Governance, Cyber Crime and Cyber Security, and The Mobile and Next Generation Internet (eg the Semantic Web and Robotics).

See culture - see IT - see Strathclyde! where the future's miles better :-)
