The Department of Social Policy and Intervention is seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Fellow in Elite Studies to work on a project, led by Prof Aaron Reeves, investigating the social origins of elites and how they have changed over time, as part of a multi-disciplinary and multi-method research group. The project will also involve working with Dr Sam Friedman from the LSE.
You will be responsible for conducting original research in the area of elite studies. While in post you will be involved in collecting and analysing novel data (either quantitative or qualitative), and collaborating in writing journal articles and giving academic presentations. You will also be responsible for managing your own academic research and administrative activities. The post holder will also be involved in a small amount of teaching.
You will have, or be close to completing a PhD/DPhil in a relevant subject area, with experience of contributing ideas for research projects and grant applications. You will be someone who thrives in a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary environment, and you will have a high level of expertise in the methodological approach (or approaches) that inform your research. It is not essential that your previous research has focused on elites directly but we anticipate that the person appointed will be keen to move into this area going forward. Excellent communication skills are also essential.
The position is full-time, for a fixed term of 24 months.

Only online applications received by 12.00 noon on 10 May 2023 will be considered. Interviews will be held in early June 2023.
