Job Description

Are you an experienced social scientist, with a strong background in qualitative or mixed methods and analysis? Are you interested in how technological developments affect experience of care and care outcomes? If this sounds like you, and you have a proven interest in understanding and researching social care, we have a fantastic opportunity for you!

You will work with the ‘Digital care: roles, risks, realities and rewards’ theme; this will include:

• Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team and with our collaborators, partners and international academic network
• Communicating research effectively through a variety of media, including in high quality peer-reviewed publications
• A dedication to co-production, engaging with non-academic partners and to using research to create impact.

You will be interested in generating impact from our research, and getting involved in our Centre-wide activities such as theory building workshops, capacity building events, co-production and user voice forums.

The Centre for Care is a new research centre established following a highly competitive process run by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The Centre is led by investigators in five universities, three major charities and the Office for National Statistics, and will work in close partnership with a large network of partners and leading international research teams, co-producing its research with people who need care, carers, care workers and others.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
