The Institute for Employment Research (IER) is seeking to appoint an outstanding Research Fellow to contribute to developing and enhancing its reputation as an internationally leading, multi-disciplinary research-only institute. IER has a strong international reputation for its research on work, employment and labour markets. IER is a separate, self-funded research department within the Faculty of Social Sciences at Warwick. It delivers high-quality research, externally funded by a range of public and private sector organisations and research councils, with its findings disseminated to academic, policy and practitioner communities.

This is an opportunity for a researcher who wants to make a difference with their research by getting involved in policy-relevant research. You will have a PhD or equivalent relevant research experience in the economic and social sciences. You will have established quantitative and/or qualitative research skills, with mixed methods research experience and have some knowledge of employment and related policy and academic and policy-relevant labour market research.

Research Fellows have the opportunity to gain experience in designing and conducting research projects and in disseminating findings. They are encouraged to develop their research skills and to publish in academic journals.
