The Social Research Institute is one of the largest centres of multi-disciplinary, social science research and teaching in London. It is home to over 80 academics based in six renowned research centres: the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS), Thomas Coram Research Unit (TCRU), the Social Science Research Unit (SSRU), Quantitative Social Studies (QSS), the Cohort and Longitudinal Studies Enhancement Resource (CLOSER) and the Centre for Time Use Research (CTUR).
This exciting post is located in the Social Science Research Unit (SSRU) and its EPPI-Centre, which studies systematic reviews of research evidence and the use of research evidence in policy and practice. As part of a very active and ground-breaking research effort, the postholder will join the resident Software and IT Support officer and be expected to actively contribute to most aspects of our work, including providing first- and second-line support, informing future design and user experience decisions, teaching usage of the software, and occasionally testing new features.
Being situated in a small, results- and research-oriented team, you will work alongside the developers of EPPI-Reviewer, will actively contribute to all planning rounds and will provide essential input in shaping the consequent User Experience. You will respond to support requests coming from external users and / or EPPI-Centre staff, primarily via email and to customers’ enquiries regarding user fees and licensing.
You will have a degree, or equivalent experience, in Social Science, Clinical/Life Sciences, information science or related subjects and experience of having contributed to the production of at least one systematic review. You will also have computer literacy and the ability to troubleshoot IT problems.
Experience with diverse systematic review methodologies (qualitative evidence synthesis, framework synthesis, etc.) as well as experience of using EPPI-Reviewer are not essential but would be an advantage.
