You will also need to demonstrate experience of conducting qualitative research, including using interview and video, qualitative data analysis, and writing for publication. As part of the role, you will also be required to travel in the UK and internationally, outside normal office hours including occasional overnight stays for research, conferences & specialist training.

One research fellowship is available. The post is offered as 12 months full-time, or alternatively may be taken up part-time for 15 months at 0.8FTE* or for 19 months at 0.6 FTE*). The role is based at Southampton & available immediately. Flexible working is available. 

*For applicants interested in this role, please note: This part-time role is unlikely to support a Certificate of Sponsorship with a part time salary amount (a Certificate of Sponsorship is required to obtain a Tier 2 visa to work in the UK). 

Applications for Research Fellow positions will be considered from candidates who are working towards or nearing completion of a relevant PhD qualification. The title of Research Fellow will be applied upon successful completion of the PhD. Prior to the qualification being awarded the title of Senior Research Assistant will be given.
