Our major research themes include housing, labour markets and welfare reform, regeneration and community, and the third sector. Overall, 81% of CRESR's research submitted to the Research Excellence Framework received 4* and 3* rating as world-leading and internationally excellent.

As a Senior / Principal Research Fellow you will be responsible for delivering research projects to deadlines and producing high quality academic outputs. You will also be expected to make a substantial contribution to income generation through contract research.
