The Role


We are seeking to appoint a Research Assistant/ Research Associate with a background and skills in social history, family history, and genealogical research to work on an innovative project entitled Caring Communities: Rethinking Social Care 1800-present, led by PI Dr Claudia Soares, and funded by UKRI.

Caring Communites: Rethinking Children's Social Care 1800-present is an ambitious and innovative research project that uses historical and contemporary sources in innovative ways to generate new understandings about the role, value and meaning of children's care through time, and importantly, offer new ideas about what children's care could look like in the future. The project develops an innovative, interdisciplinary framework that combines approaches from historical research with creative, arts-based methods and participatory practices to provide a major cultural and affective study of children's care between 1800-present.

Your role will focus on the collection and interpretation of historical evidence relating to children's care between 1800-1945. This will include extensive archival, family history and genealogical research. Additionally, you will support the wider team in the delivery of collaborative research that has qualitiative, creative and participatary methods at its core.

You will join a small interdisciplinary team led by the PI, alongside an RA with expertise in qualitative research methods, and a RA with Creative Research/Arts-Based expertise. With support from the PI, you will be required to collaborate with a range of stakeholders, expected to take initiative in your work, and consult with the wider team over the details of the project. You will be expected to attend regular in-person and online project meetings, and to participate fully in the research life of the School.

The project is hosted in the School of History, Classics & Archaeology, which has a vibrant and active research culture with particular strengths in interdisciplinary working and supporting the holistic career development of early career colleagues.

You will be provided with academic and pastoral support within the School, and training will be provided to develop your competences. You will benefit from access to the School's mentoring scheme, individual research expense allowance, extensive training opportunities including a bespoke personal development plan, and peer support from a cross disciplinary cohort of talented postdoctoral and early career researchers. Newcastle University is a signatory to the Concordat to support researchers' career development which entitles Postdoctoral Research Associates up to 10 days annually of personal career and research development activities.
