REPHRAIN, National Research Centre on Privacy, Harm Reduction and Adversarial Influence Online, is looking for an interdisciplinary researcher with experience in policy and regulatory approaches to addressing online harms.
REPHRAIN is the UK’s world-leading interdisciplinary community focussed on the protection of citizens online. A UKRI-funded National Research Centre, REPHRAIN has over 100 researchers at 17 UK institutions working across 46 diverse projects. REPHRAIN also works collaboratively with 23 founding industry, non-profit, government, law, regulation and international research centre partners as well as a wider set of policy and practice stakeholders. The Centre’s aim is to address the current tensions and imbalances between the substantial benefits to be gained by full participation in the digital economy, and the potential for harm through loss of privacy, security, disinformation and a myriad of other online harms.
What will you be doing?
This role will support the delivery of the cross-cutting strand, Policy and Regulation. This strand analyses the policy and regulatory implications of protecting people including minors and vulnerable individuals against the broad range of online harms they encounter in the digital world.
The post holder will assist researchers and academics across the REPHRAIN project portfolio in achieving real-world impact by helping their research be communicated to policy stakeholders and ultimately used in policy processes – nationally and internationally. The successful candidate will work with the Centre’s Executive Team to drive the delivery of policy engagement activities. The post holder will work with project researchers to develop policy engagement strategies, draft policy briefs and reports and deliver engaging events that bring policymakers and academics together.
