Postdoctoral Research Fellows (3 Posts)

Do you have experience in multi-sited and cross-national ethnography of workplaces, unions or labour activism? Would you like to investigate the emerging hybrid areas of work, and to join an exceptional transdisciplinary research project? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

You will be a post-doctoral researcher experienced in qualitative methods in labour studies and will work on a multi-method research project aimed at investigating the challenges of social protection and labour representation in the ‘hybrid areas of work’.

The three successful candidates will work both independently and as part of a larger team of researchers, within a project funded by the European Research Council at the Leeds University Business School, and led by Dr Annalisa Murgia. You will carry out case studies in two European countries to understand to what extent and under which conditions solo self-employed workers are able to develop collective practices of organising, focusing not only on unions, but also on alternative associations and emerging claims-making activities.

Please see the brief summary of the project below and the webpage
