Job description

We are seeking a part time Research Fellow to work as part of an ongoing funded project: Gender on the higher education learning agenda internationally: Co-constructing foundations for equitable futures. 

The project, which runs from January 2021-December 2022 focuses on gender inclusion in higher education (HE) teaching in universities across five countries. The project is led by an established interdisciplinary team of academics from each university.

The appointed Research Fellow will be expected to contribute actively to all aspects of the ongoing progress of the research including project management, communication, stakeholder engagement, and taking a role in developing collaborative written and verbal dissemination.

The Research Fellow will join online international meetings and will work closely with project Research Assistants in India, Kazakhstan, Morocco, and Nigeria.

This is an online research project that will not involve international travel. The appointed Research Fellow will therefore need to be confident and competent in working online.

  • 0.4 FTE, end date of 03 October 2022
  • 0.3 FTE end date of 07 November 2022
  • 0.2 FTE end date of 3 January 2023
