Department Rights Lab

Salary £27511 to £40322 per annum (pro rata if applicable) depending on skills and experience (minimum £30942 with relevant PhD). Salary progression beyond this scale is subject to performance

This role is part of the University’s Rights Lab, a Beacon of Excellence that is delivering research to help end modern slavery. The role-holder will work alongside Vicky Brotherton, Nicola Wright and a team of multi-disciplinary experts on a UKRI-funded multi-methods research project focused on the risks and impacts of COVID-19 on victims and survivors of modern slavery. Using a combination of qualitative and quantitative research methods, and working with a range of external partner organisations, the project will answer the question: ‘What are the risks and mitigating responses of COVID-19 for modern slavery survivors?’ The research findings will be used to inform policy responses to help ensure modern slavery survivors receive the necessary support during and after the pandemic.

The role-holder will contribute across all areas of the project work plan and will ideally have project management experience. Key roles and responsibilities include: 

  • Gathering large amounts of information from a wide range of sources, both on modern slavery and factors that cause vulnerability.
  • Liaising with external partners and stakeholders to access information and date, and reporting back to then on project findings.
  • Helping to design and administer surveys of varying scale.
  • Synthesizing, analysing, interpreting and presenting results from both qualitative and quantitative datasets.
  • Completing reports on evidence and analysis, to support the development and use of new risk assessment frameworks.
  • Supporting the development of research publications and contributing to the writing of policy and research reports for various audiences.
  • Developing and delivering knowledge exchange towards impact.

We welcome applications from recent PhD graduates, applicants close to completion of a PhD, and those with postdoctoral experience. 

The role is available as a fixed-term post beginning as soon as possible and ending on 23rd November 2021. Hours of work are full-time (36.25 hours); however applications are also welcome from candidates wishing to work part-time (minimum 29 hours per week). Please specify in your application if you wish to work part time and the number of preferred hours. Job share arrangements may be considered.
