The role

The School of Policy Studies at the University of Bristol is seeking to recruit a Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) for a PhD in the area of Criminology/Social Harm with a particular focus on the relationship between gambling and harm and based upon qualitative work with gamblers. The successful candidate will work on their own PhD project and contribute to teaching within the School for Policy Studies.

What will you be doing?

As well as working on your own PhD research project, the post holder will be expected to contribute to seminar teaching on at least one of these undergraduate units: Criminological Theory, Inequality, Harm and Public Policy and Critical Skills for Social Scientists. The GTA scholarship requires recipients to be involved in up to 250 hours of teaching and teaching-related activities each year, including facilitating seminars, seminar preparation, marking, and office hours. As part of this, postholders will be expected to undergo teacher training sessions through the CREATE scheme offered by the University’s Staff Development Unit. 

You should apply if

Applicants for GTA funding should hold (or expect to hold) a first class/good upper second class BSc/BA and MSc/MA with distinction/merit (or equivalent qualifications) in the social sciences. Candidates are required to fulfil the conditions of admission to the Social Policy or Social Work Doctoral programmes which involve submission of a research proposal for a PhD project lying within the interests of the two supervisors (see: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/apply/). We invite proposals that provide a critical investigation of the relationship between gambling and harm, based upon qualitative work with gamblers. The project should involve exploration of how the lived experience of gambling relates to changes in gambling opportunities and platforms. We particularly invite applications from candidates with project applications that:

  • Critically examine the distinction between 'problem' and 'non-problem' gambling; · Assess the changing nature of gambling experiences as part of the shift to online platforms; · Engage with gambling as a form of everyday leisure; · Investigate the relationship between gambling and debt; · Use innovative research methods to uncover otherwise unseen dynamics of gambling experience. For further information, including a detailed outline of the GTA award, the eligibility and selection criteria as well as additional guidance for international applicants, can be found in the Further Particulars Document below and https://www.bristol.ac.uk/jobs/find/using reference ACAD106156
