Excluded Lives is a multi-disciplinary project across the four jurisdictions of the UK based in the Department of Education at the University of Oxford. The overarching aim of this project is to provide a comprehensive and multi-disciplinary view of the different policies, practices and costs of formal, informal and illegal school exclusions across the UK. The project will explore the different landscapes of exclusion and the experiences of the young people involved. This research will provide the basis on which the consequences of different political economies may be understood, decisions of policy makers and professionals may be improved, and experiences of pupils and their families enhanced.

You will have excellent communication skills, including the ability to write text that can be published, present data at conferences, and represent the research group at meetings.  You will be able to manage your own research and administrative activities.  An understanding of the education system in England is essential.
