Research Assistant: Learning by Doing Together, Centre for Employment Relations, Innovation and Change (CERIC)

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge?  Do you have lived experience of learning disability and experience of working with people and  organisations in learning disability communities? 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 has finished an action research project about designing jobs with people with learning disabilities.

The project is called “Learning by Doing Together” and it was funded by DRILL (Disability Research on Independent Living and Learning).

We are looking for someone with lived experience of learning disability to work with a co-worker and an academic to: 

  • Think more about what the project found out and what the findings mean; 

  • Share messages from the project;

  • Make sure the messages from the project become part of publications and conversations in universities and communities;

  • Think about how to take the research forward.
