December 1, 2014     Leave a Comment

The Sustainable Housing & Urban Studies Unit (SHUSU) at the University of Salford has an exciting opportunity for a researcher to support our research activities for a fixed term period and help shape and deliver its growing portfolio of work. A significant component of the role will be to engage, as the University of Salford partner, with the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded project Welfare Conditionality: Sanctions Support and Behaviour Change.

This will take up 0.5fte of the post. Within this the researcher will be required to continue data collection via qualitative interviews, liaise with the other project teams, and contribute to data analysis. The post is particularly suited to individuals grounded in the social sciences (i.e. social policy, psychology, sociology) but with experience of, or aptitude for, working across disciplines (i.e., anthropology, housing, human geography, health etc). Individuals with experience in qualitative interviewing are required but candidates with additional experience of quantitative methods and/or evaluation methodologies are particularly encouraged to apply.
