The University of Birmingham is establishing an Educational Equity Initiative to act as a hub for education institutions, government agencies, community groups and employers to work together to create more equitable learning pathways across the life-course. Its purpose is to generate a step-change in understanding of, and approaches to, educational equity, leading to better outcomes for people from disadvantaged and marginalised backgrounds, and the communities in which they live and work.
This is one of three Senior Research Fellow positions being recruited to make a key contribution to the work of the Initiative. Each position is fixed-term for 3 years at Grade 9 on the Academic & Research scale.
Across all three roles, post-holders will work collaboratively with each-other and with a range of academic colleagues associated with the Educational Equity Initiative to develop transformative new knowledge, policy and practice. All Senior Research Fellows will contribute at a senior level on a sustained basis to the whole range of research, engagement and administration. All posts will require a PhD in a cognate area and a proven track-record of high-quality research and publication and/or policy development and impact. The Senior Research Fellow – Educational Equity will have particular expertise in understanding inclusion and the intersectionality of multiple axes of disadvantage and exclusion.
