Academic & Research
We are deeply proud of our academic community. Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is a diverse and dynamic learning environment, defined by a shared sense of respect for all its people. Our mission is to be bold, to do the right things and to change lives, and our academics are key to realising those goals.
Our continued success — underpinned by the number of prestigious national awards we’ve won — has hinged on two commitments: forging excellent partnerships around the world and harnessing the talents of all our people. We secured a ‘Gold’ rating in the government’s Teaching Excellence Framework; received the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our pioneering research; and in 2018, we were the first UK university to sign the Social Mobility Pledge, further demonstrating our commitment to ensuring ‘success for all’. NTU is a university at the peak of its powers, but we know we can still go even further. That’s why we’re now looking for new, passionate, ambitious people to join our community.
The Centre for People, Work and Organisational Practice (CPWOP) undertakes research into the managing, organising and practices within organisations. The centre focuses on work that is intellectually rigorous and relevant to practitioners. It was the university Team of the Year for research in 2019, and since then have gone on from strength to strength, and have undertaken work with the government including DCMS and the Government Equality Office, the CIPD, NCVO, Lloyds Register Foundation, and funded by the ESRC, British Academy and other major funders.
Our research has been focusing on wellbeing, employee voice and engagement, and research on the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector. We are looking for a researcher who can build on the success of this work to help to deepen our theoretical insights and help extend our engagement with practitioners on these topics. Showing initiative, working with a wide range of stakeholders, and undertaking rigorous academic work are all features of this role.
We are looking for someone with strong quantitative design and analytical skills. We are particularly interested in someone who has set up and administered surveys, conducted analysis with large data sets and developed theoretically informed work. You will work as part of a team, supporting and where appropriate leading a range of projects within the centre. You will also have the opportunity to develop your own research trajectory. A background in HRM/Organizational Behaviour or Work Psychology would be an advantage, but other disciplines would also be suitable. Knowledge, or ability to learn Qualtrics, SPSS and/or MPLUS is also essential
