This is a part-time (0.5 FTE), fixed-term contract from November 2021 or, as soon as possible afterwards, until August 2024.

Applications are invited for the post of part time (0.5 FTE) Research Fellow in the Department of psychology to work on the project The Formation of Children’s Values in School. The Research Fellow will join the team on November 1st, 2021 (or as soon as possible thereafter), about a year after the project has started, and the post will end on the 31/8/2024. The project takes place in Switzerland and the UK, and examines values in children of primary school, using a longitudinal study in Switzerland complemented by a comparison (non-longitudinal) study in the UK. The Research Fellow will be in charge of the longitudinal statistical analyses (for which we have a budget for training), including supporting the PhD students on the project in Switzerland. The research fellow will take part in publications and in presentations in international conferences and potentially also teachers’ workshops. There may be possibilities to combine this job with teaching jobs in Royal Holloway.

Funding from the Swiss National Science Foundation enables us to offer this position as part of an international team from Royal Holloway University of London, Westminster University, and the University of Basel. The post holder will be working with Prof. Anat Bardi from Royal Holloway University of London, Dr. Anna Doering from Westminster University, and Prof. Elena Makarova from the University of Basel. In addition, the post holder will work closely with two PhD students from the University of Basel.

You will have a PhD by the first day of employment, have background in psychology, educational sciences or other relevant sciences, have strong statistical skills and ideally in longitudinal statistical analyses. You will also communicate effectively, and work very well as part of a team.

In return we offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package including:

  • Generous annual leave entitlement
  • Training and Development opportunities
  • Pension Scheme with generous employer contribution
  • Various schemes including Cycle to Work, Season Ticket Loans and help with the cost of Eyesight testing.
  • Free parking

The post is based in Egham, Surrey where the College is situated in a beautiful, leafy campus near to Windsor Great Park and within commuting distance from London.
