Job Details (corehr.com)

We are looking for a highly motivated post-doctoral researcher to join an enthusiastic, multidisciplinary research team based at the University of Oxford Department of Education and working with UCL’s Institute of Education to carry out research for an externally-funded project ‘A portrait of the teaching of Empire, Migration and Belonging in English secondary schools’.

This is an exciting opportunity for a post-doctoral researcher to join a three-year, multi-method, cross-institutional research project working with a range of methodologies for the study of how the topics of Empire, Migration and belonging are taught in English schools. The overarching aim of this project is primarily focussed on supporting teachers with their teaching of the complex topics of empire, migration and belonging (E,M B).

You will initially contribute to reaching out to relevant stakeholders and experts and conducting interviews with them. Whist also undertaking an initial review of related literature to inform the empirical work. You will participate in the discussion of methods and approaches to data collection and analysis in relation to the project as a whole. At a later stage you will use agreed approaches for extensive searches of secondary qualitative and quantitative data sources, secondary data analysis, and literature analysis

This is a three-year, part-time (0.5FTE), fixed term contract, based in Oxford, UK.

The post-holder will independently manage own workload and administrative activities and work closely with Dr Todd at Oxford and with the team of collaborators at UCL. This involves small scale project management as well as co-ordinating multiple aspects of work with other team members to meet deadlines.

You will work in collaboration with other team members, adapt existing methodologies, concepts and ideas to extend intellectual understanding of the ways that empire, migration and belonging are taught and understood in schools. You will assist investigators with preparation of manuscripts including conducting literature reviews and preparing bibliographies, preparing written summaries of research findings, managing reference library and databases.

There will be opportunities to write papers for peer-reviewed journals and to present papers at conferences and meetings including stakeholders such as teachers.

You will hold (or be expected shortly to obtain) a PhD qualification, together with relevant research experience, and possess sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline to work within the tight project timeline and requirements. As this is a multidisciplinary project, the successful candidate could have a background in any number of cognate disciplines such as Education, Sociology, History, Cultural Studies. An interest and knowledge of UK Educational policy is beneficial.

Good interpersonal, IT and organisational skills are essential, as is the ability to liaise with various agencies and research teams, to work independently as well as part of the wider team.

This position is part time (0.5FTE / 18.75 hours) on a fixed term basis.
