Established in 2007, the Policy Evaluation and Research Unit at Manchester Metropolitan University is a multi-disciplinary team of researchers working across all social science disciplines.
About the role:
The main purpose of this role is to undertake research on the Horizon 2020 project COORDINATE which is a Starting Community on using survey research data to enhance child wellbeing policy making across Europe. You will join a team of multi-disciplinary researchers, led by Prof Pollock, using a range of innovative methods to establish Growing Up In Digital Europe (GUIDE), the first pan European cohort study measuring child and youth wellbeing across Europe.
The role will involve a variety of research tasks including developing ethical protocols for surveying adults and children, foresight planning, running child and youth advisory boards, establishing platforms to bring together scientists and policy makers working in the field of child wellbeing. You will also support the broader team in other aspects of the COORDINATE and GUIDEPREP projects as appropriate.
You will be expected to analyse and disseminate research findings through relevant journals, conferences, and seminars, in order to further GUIDE and PERU's standing in the research community and contribute to the development of new substantive findings in the field of longitudinal survey analysis and methodology.
An interest in using survey evidence to support child wellbeing policy is essential. While it is an advantage to be able to analyse longitudinal survey data, this is not an essential criteria for this post.
This is a fixed-term post for 2 years. Interviews are expected to take place on 27th January.
Please apply by submitting a CV and covering letter, outlining your suitability for the role.
