An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Grade 6 Research Assistant to contribute to the UK Research & Innovation funded Future Leaders Fellowship study, ‘Following Young Fathers Further’ (FYFF). The study, which commenced in January 2020, is an ambitious participatory, qualitative longitudinal and international comparative study that aims to understand and transform the way society constructs and responds to young fathers (aged 25 and under). Under the leadership of Dr Anna Tarrant (Associate Professor of Sociology), the post-holder will have direct involvement in developing new knowledge and understanding about young fathers and their support needs. This is an opportunity for an aspiring qualitative researcher to gain skills in researching with marginalised young parents, to engage with external partners and develop skills and competence as a qualitative researcher. Further information about the study can be found at: http://followingyoungfathersfurther.org

The post will be based in the School of Social and Political Science in the College of Social Science at the University of Lincoln.

The School of Social and Political Sciences where the post is based houses Politics and International Relations, Criminology, Social Policy and Sociology. The School has a well-established and expanding academic profile in both learning and teaching and research. The FYFF study is significant to the expansion of social sciences research at the University of Lincoln.

Offered on a full-time basis, the post is available fixed term until 15th December 2023. Ideally the candidate will be available to take up the position by September 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter. Requests for part time working will be considered.

The main duties of the successful candidate include sustaining relationships with participants (some of whom are marginalised), conducting an international literature review of young fatherhood research; scheduling and conducting semi-structured interviews; qualitative data analysis; data management support; and contributing to the presentation and communication of findings including written reports, the website, and social media. Knowledge and experience with qualitative research methods is essential. Engagement with young people and/or non-academic partners and beneficiaries is beneficial.
