Are you an early career researcher looking for your first challenge? Do you have a background in international business, corporate social responsibility, human trafficking and/or modern slavery and forced labour? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

Leeds University Business School is seeking a Research Assistant to work for 7 month on a British Academy funded interdisciplinary research project examining Modern Slavery along international supply chains. The project you will be involved in is one strand of a wider research programme on Modern Slavery which will consider the issues around the implementation of the Modern Slavery Act within British fashion and textile firms and within their international suppliers. We envisage that a variety of research methods will be used, including coding and analysis of text, interviews, and both primary and secondary quantitative data collection and analysis. So, expertise in quantitative research is essential and experience of mixed-methods research is desirable. This is an excellent opportunity to gain applied research experience within one of the UK’s leading universities.

Interviews will be held week commencing 22 January 2018.
