We are looking for a Post Graduate Research Assistant to help us set up and lead an exciting, innovative new global web platform that is: an active education community; a publisher of high-quality, ‘close to practice’ research conducted by educational practitioners themselves; a research training and support hub; and a forge for policy-ideas. CamTREE is the first such initiative of its kind and aims to be world leading in improving practices and systems across educational levels.

CamTREE has four goals: to (i) collect, curate, promote and publish high-quality, ‘close-to-practice’ research amongst a (ii) growing international community of CamTREE practitioner-researchers; (iii) provide training and support for classroom and school-based research-led improvement and leadership; (iv) synthesise and publish reviews from CamTREE’s research database; and (v) host bespoke CamTREE domain community services to educational systems worldwide.

Based in the Digital Education Futures Initiative at Hughes Hall’s Bridge for research and practice, you will work with the Managing Director to create and grow the CamTREE platform, products and services.

Your experience

You will be driven in pursuit of excellence with an eye for detail and a relentless focus on using practitioner research evidence to improve learning and to develop educational leadership capacity. You will believe in the importance of quality education and outcomes for all learners everywhere. Experience of work in an educational setting would be an advantage. You will be able to empathise with, inspire, and support others in carrying out and reporting practitioner research and to support the development of the CamTREE online practitioner research community. You will be a strong team player in a brand-new venture where every day the team’s work is critical
