The School of Social and Political Science is recruiting a Research Associate to make a leading research contribution to the ESRC study What Worked: Policy Mobility and the Public Health Approach to Youth Violence. The project, a collaboration between the University of Glasgow, Open University, University of Edinburgh and London School of Economics, responds to the urgent social problem of rising youth violence by seeking to establish a new evidence-base on public health approaches to violence reduction, and the ways such policies transfer between jurisdictions, to shape policy, guide best practice, and inform public debate. Specifically, the post-holder will conduct, manage, publish and disseminate research on violence reduction in Scotland as well as assist in managing and directing this complex and challenging project by liaising closely with that part of the study being managed by the Open University.

This post is part time at 28 hours per week with funding available for up to 30 months in the first instance. However for the right candidate, this post may offer a degree of flexibility around contract duration/ FTE. This can be discussed at interview.
