Placed On: 19th November 2021

Applications are invited for a Senior Research Fellow to undertake quantitative analysis for a major national educational trial. The research forms part of the DfE-funded Centres for Excellence in Mathematics (CfEM) Delivery Programme which is being undertaken by a consortium of partners and is coordinated by the Education and Training Foundation (ETF). The University of Nottingham is running a randomized controlled trial on approaches to teaching mathematics in order to improve outcomes for GCSE resit students in Further Education. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to a unique research programme that will establish a much-needed evidence base.

The trial involves the generation and analysis of large volumes of quantitative and qualitative data. The analysis of quantitative data - including assessment outcomes, teacher and student surveys - will be the main focus of the role.  An initial round of research was conducted in 2019-2020 and details of this work will be available to interviewees.

The successful candidate will work closely with Professors Geoff Wake and Andy Noyes and colleagues in CRME and more widely in the CfEM consortium. They will have prior experience of working on substantial research projects involving large and complex data sets. Ideally, they will have experience of research in education, in particular RCTs in educational settings and working with the National Pupil Database.

Applicants should also hold a PhD/EdD in (Mathematics) Education or Social Sciences. 

This is a full time (36.25 hours), fixed term post to 31 March 2023. Arrangements for job share would be considered.

Informal enquiries may be address to Professor Andy Noyes, email Andrew.Noyes@nottingham.ac.uk or Professor Geoff Wake, email Geoffrey.Wake@nottingham.ac.uk. Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
