The Social Research Institute is one of the leading centres for social research in the UK. It is home to seven internationally renowned research units:
All of our centres are multidisciplinary, with staff drawn variously from economics, sociology, social policy, demography, psychology, anthropology and social statistics. We promote problem-solving interdisciplinary research on particular themes where we have outstanding scholarship and critical mass, e.g. gender, families, work, inequalities, migration, bio-social interactions.
We are now seeking a Lecturer/Associate Professor in any quantitative social science discipline to contribute to teaching and research. Relevant fields include, but are not limited to: sociology, economics, psychology, social policy and political science. Applicants with an interest in data science, in particular, in the application of machine learning or natural language processing techniques to social science problems, are especially welcome. You will be expected to enhance our interdisciplinary research portfolio, with a focus on the application of quantitative social science research methods to real world problems. You will be expected to seek research funding from a range of sources, and to be able to generate demonstrable impact and engagement in their work. In addition, you will lead modules on our BSc Social Sciences with Data Science (SSDS) degree and may apply to lead this programme in the future.
You will have a PhD in any social science discipline, where advanced quantitative methods have been applied together with a solid reputation for research in a social science discipline, evidence of relevant scholarship and a strong record of peer-reviewed publications. In addition, for appointment at Grade 9 you will need to demonstrate a strong track record of success in securing research or consultancy funds and and clear plans for future grant submissions.
