Research Fellow / Senior Research Fellow – Labour Market and Workforce Data Analysis, Centre for Employment Relations (CERIC)

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge?  Do you have a research background in the areas of work and employment broadly conceived (for example, employment relations, sociology of work and employment, human resource management, occupational psychology, labour economics), supported by good theoretical and computational skills? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

The Centre for Employment Relations Innovation and Change (CERIC) is a leading research centre investigating the changing nature of work and employment and employment relations. It houses a critical mass of internationally regarded researchers that produce intellectually challenging work with genuine policy and practitioner impact. CERIC is currently looking to strengthen its expertise in quantitative data analysis and is looking to appoint a Research Fellow (at Grade 7), or a Senior Research Fellow (at Grade 8) who can contribute to a variety of research projects and research-related activities.

This is a highly challenging and academically stimulating position. Equipped with a strong background in data administration, statistical modelling and data analysis the successful candidate will work with different groups of academics on an eclectic range of current and new projects. For example, recent projects include surveys of employers’ training practices, the experiences of workers in the platform economy, secondary analysis of administrative data on the legal profession in England and Wales to understand equality and diversity in the legal profession and secondary analysis of social surveys such as the Workplace Employment Relations Survey (WERS), the annual population survey (APS), Understanding Society and the European Social Survey.

The successful candidate will also be given the opportunity to pursue (or work towards pursuing) their own independent research programme in the field of work and employment relations (broadly conceived). Up to a third of your time will be devoted to your own research.
