Role Summary

We are recruiting a full-time Research Fellow to provide maternity cover for a post working on ‘Care transitions’ as part of the ESRC Centre for Care, https://centreforcare.ac.uk/. The role will include:

  • Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team and with our collaborators, partners and international academic network
  • Developing theoretical and empirical analysis of experiences of giving and receiving care across the lifecourse
  • Communicating research effectively through a variety of media, including in high quality peer-reviewed publications
  • A dedication to co-production, engaging with non-academic partners and to using research to create impact.

You will be interested in generating impact from our research, and getting involved in our Centre-wide activities such as theory building workshops, capacity building events, co-production and user voice forums.

The Centre for Care is a new research centre established following a highly competitive process run by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The Centre is led by investigators in five universities, three major charities and the Office for National Statistics, and will work in close partnership with a large network of partners and leading international research teams, co-producing its research with people who need care, carers, care workers and others. More details about the Centre are available here: https://centreforcare.ac.uk/

As the successful candidate, you will have experience of undertaking social care research at PhD level or beyond. You will have a PhD (completed or close to completion) in a social science subject (or equivalent experience). You will have designed and undertaken qualitative research and have experience of writing high quality peer reviewed publications. You will be committed to working co-productively with non-academic stakeholders including people with lived experience of social care, and to building impactful research.

You will be based in the ESRC Centre for Care team in the University of Birmingham’s School of Social Policy. We are committed to research that makes a difference to policy, to practice and to people’s lives. Along with other research staff in the Centre for Care, you will spend 10% of your time on impact activities and 10% on Centre-wide activities: theory building workshops, capacity building events, co-production, and user voice forums.
