We have an exciting opportunity to join a multi-disciplinary team delivering a research project using the power of UK secondary data resources to address how the introduction of the two-child limit to welfare policy and changes to contraceptive services have impacted abortion inequalities and poverty, to mitigate unintended consequences for women and children, and inform policy. Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council’s Secondary Data Analysis Initiative, this project will contribute to shifting understanding on the health and social impacts of economic policies and on the equigenic impacts of new models of contraceptive funding to improve health, wellbeing, and services. You will work collaboratively as part of a wider team, with specific responsibility for - conducting a policy review to theorise the pathways from child-related welfare policies and cuts to local area funding for contraceptive services to poverty and abortion rates, - advanced quantitative analyses to explore relationships between abortion and poverty rates and changes to both welfare policies and contraceptive services. You should have demonstrable skills in advanced quantitative data analysis, including familiarity with, or knowledge of, methods for exploiting natural experiments. Ideally you will have subject knowledge of abortion, poverty or welfare policy in the UK, and an understanding of health inequalities theory and research. Experience of writing research outputs, such as journal articles and reports, and good co-ordination and project management skills are required.
