Research Associate - CITP Policy Coherence

Cardiff University - School of Law and Politics

Location: Cardiff
Salary: £39,347 to £44,263 per annum (Grade 6)
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 27th November 2023
Closes: 8th January 2024
Job Ref: 17700BR

This position offers an exciting opportunity for a political scientist or legal scholar to join a new multi-million-pound ESRC-funded Research Centre, the Centre for Inclusive Trade Policy (CITP). CITP spans universities across the four UK administrations as well as international partners and brings together interdisciplinary research in trade, economics, politics, political economy and law. It is one of three posts within a suite of collaborative projects run by a team at Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) and Cardiff University under CITP’s research theme ‘Negotiating a Turbulent World’ on the governance of UK trade policy.

The Cardiff-QUB collaborative projects are: 1) Governance and Inclusivity in the UK on interactions between trade agreements and devolution, 2) Mapping stakeholder participation to formal and informal trade bodies on who, how, to what extent stakeholders are involved in the formulation of trade policy, 3) Transversal policy coherence on the degree of policy coherence – in terms of inputs and outcomes – across sectors, evaluating the quality of policy formulation and capacity to achieve multi-dimensional objectives. Following on from our Trade Citizen Juries in 2023, deliberative exercises on trade also form a crucial part of this collaborative research.

Candidates should demonstrate the ability to conduct high quality research in politics, public policy and/or trade law and policy. Clear communication of research in writing and verbally, commensurate with career stage, is a key skill. The candidate should demonstrate the capability to make theoretical and empirical contributions to the Stakeholder Participation project. Candidates should also demonstrate knowledge of the UK system of devolution and the interaction between devolution and UK foreign policy. Qualitative research skills and experience are necessary, experience of quantitative research (survey design and analysis) and/or socio-legal analysis is welcome. The successful candidate will undertake a range of research, knowledge exchange and dissemination activities associated with the project.

Candidates wishing to have an informal discussion in advance of submitting an application should contact Dr Ludivine Petetin at PetetinL@cardiff.ac.uk.  

This post is full time (35 hours per week), fixed term for 18 months and is available from March 2024.

Salary: £39,347 - £44,263 per annum (Grade 6)

Closing date: Monday, 8 January 2024

Cardiff University is committed to supporting and promoting equality and diversity and to creating an inclusive working environment. We believe this can be achieved through attracting, developing, and retaining a diverse range of staff from many different backgrounds. We therefore welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of sex, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, trans identity, relationship status, religion or belief, caring responsibilities, or age. We especially welcome and encourage applications from those from under-represented groups within the University workforce, such as those who identify as LGBT + BAME or those with disabilities. In supporting our employees to achieve a balance between their work and their personal lives, we will also consider proposals for flexible working or job share arrangements.

Cardiff University is a signatory to the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), which means that in hiring and promotion decisions we will evaluate applicants on the quality of their research, not publication metrics or the identity of the journal in which the research is published.
