Research Fellow

University of Surrey - Department of Sociology

The University of Surrey has been funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), as part of the NORFACE consortium, to lead a major new three-year project: ‘CILIA-LGBTQ – Comparing Intersectional Life Course Inequalities amongst LGBTQ citizens in Four European Countries’.  We are seeking a Research Fellow for a one year position to support two of the project’s work-packages.

The Research Fellow should possess strong, independent research skills, but also be able to work as part of a cross-national team and communicate with a range of audiences. Applications are invited from those with a social science PhD and who must possess quantitative secondary data analysis skills.  The ability to conduct literature searches is essential and skills necessary to identify legislative, policy and organisational documents relevant to the aims of the project would also be desirable.  It would be beneficial if the applicant also had some knowledge of inequalities pertaining to LGBTQ people. An interest in life course approaches and/or intersectionality is useful, though not essential.

Because of the funding scheme requirements, the person appointed must be able to start the position on 1st March 2018.

Informal enquiries may be made to the project lead, Dr Andrew King
