We are seeking to appoint a Research Fellow to work on a UKRI-GCRF Action Against Stunting Hub project which investigates and profiles the cognitive development of young children and their home and early learning environments.
Given the multidisciplinary nature of the role the successful candidate will be based in two departments: Department of Learning and Leadership and Department of Psychology and Human Development.
The Department of Learning and Leadership (DLL) is a large specialist research and teaching department of approximately 140 academic staff specialises in early years and primary education, educational leadership and education policy.
The Department of Psychology and Human Development (PHD) brings together staff with research and teaching interests that encompass psychological approaches to learning, development and teaching from early childhood to adulthood.
The project is one of 12 new Global Research Hubs funded by UKRI through the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) which is a key component in delivering the UK AID strategy and places UK-led research at the heart of efforts to tackle the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The aim of the Hub is to contribute to the global efforts to reduce child stunting by up to 10% across three study sites in India, Indonesia and Senegal. The project is based on innovative interdisciplinary research that will enhance our understanding of the factors that lead to optimal development and learning for children living in low and middle-income countries.
You will contribute to the conceptualisation of our understanding of the development and learning environments of children who are stunted. This will include managing the collection and analysis of complex data from the project sites and contributing to the production of research outcomes and research outputs. In addition, you will develop, administer and analyse large datasets using international cognitive and education environment measures, interviews and/or questionnaire surveys.
You will also assist in communicating the results of the research to different key stakeholder groups including multi-disciplinary teams in the Hub. This will require a proactive approach to knowledge exchange and collaborative work. Overseas travel is expected to work with local country partners.
With a Doctorate degree in the field of developmental psychology or early years education, with a significant focus on the use and analysis of standardised measures, You will have strong quantitative and qualitative research skills and experience of applying these to answer research questions.
