Job offer: Research Associate - University of Sheffield

15 September 2022

Are you interested in working for a world top 100 University?

The Department of Sociological Studies is committed to understanding society and social change, and to research and teaching that improves people's lives, especially those of the most vulnerable. We are proud to be one of the top social science research departments in the UK, with a long history of high profile contributions to theory, policy and practice. The Department has a major international reputation for excellence in research and teaching across Sociology, Social Policy, Social Work and Digital Society.

The department is looking to recruit a Research Associate with expertise in advanced quantitative methods and a commitment to tackling inequalities. You will work on a new ESRC Research Project: Storying Life Courses for Intersectional Inclusion: Ethnicity and Wellbeing Across Time and Place, funded under its Inclusive Ageing programme. This change-oriented project aims to transform both understanding of inclusive ageing, and the prospects for new policy and practice approaches to achieve it.

Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant discipline with strong communication skills, both written and verbal with experience of conducting research within the area of ageing and the life course and/or race, ethnicity and migration.

This post is available from 31 October 2022 until 30 October 2025.

We are committed to enabling our employees to work in a hybrid model with flexibility over when, where and how to achieve the required outputs, in discussion with your manager.
We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK.

The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.
We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
