King’s College London is seeking a post-doctoral researcher for their XCEPT project. XCEPT is a FCDO funded multi-partner research project that examines issues related to conflict in fragile and conflict affected states (FCAS). KCL’s component of XCEPT is led by the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR).
The project specifically studies violent and peaceful behaviour (e.g. intergroup conflict, terrorism/radicalisation, peacebuilding, reconciliation, etc.) in FCAS such as Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, South Sudan, as well as others. The project includes large-scale longitudinal psychometric surveys, randomised control trial studies of mental health and trauma interventions, and qualitative interviews across the aforementioned countries. This is a policy-oriented research project which produces written outputs such as reviews of evidence, policy briefing notes, working papers, journal articles, and commentaries/Op-eds. In addition, project members conduct broader engagement through governmental policy presentations, public conferences, podcasts, video explainers, and other media.
The qualified applicant will hold a PhD in a field or topic that relates to violent conflict, security, and human behaviour. The candidate will ideally have experience in mixed methods behavioural research. They will be expected to take the lead on inferential statistical analyses on large-scale longitudinal psychometric surveys and randomised control trial studies. Demonstrated skills in structural equation modelling, factor analysis, multiple regressions, cluster analysis, mixed effect models, multi-level models, latent class models, and other relevant analyses are required. The researcher will also be heavily involved in project management. They must be London-based or be willing to relocate to London.
