A Research Associate is required to assist investigators in all aspects of the British Election Study (BES) covering two main areas: research support and impact. Key duties will include supporting data management and data linking, supporting the investigators in a program of collaboration with other survey investigators via meetings and research, generating data analysis outputs for public and media engagement and academic outlets, helping to create material for the project website and maintaining the website, maintaining a record of all impact-related activities, supporting the BES senior policy and media advisor, and assisting an overarching programme of events.
The post is available full-time but applications for part-time appointments will be considered (flexibility for longer working hours would be required April-September 2015, assuming the British general election is held in May 2015). The post offers an exciting opportunity to be involved in all aspects of a leading academic study before and during the next British general election.
You should have a background in a relevant field (such as Election Studies or Political Science).
Expertise in the application of quantitative methods in political science is necessary. Some prior experience of questionnaire design and survey methodology would be an advantage.
Informal enquiries can be made to Ed Fieldhouse
The University of Manchester values a diverse workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
