[ecrea] Productive Margins Research Associate Cardiff University

Thu Nov 14 13:56:01 GMT 2013

Research Associate
Cardiff University -Cardiff School of Social Sciences

We are seeking to recruit a Research Associate to be part of the Productive Margins: Regulating for Engagement research programme which is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). This is an innovative new collaborative project between academics across disciplines in Cardiff and Bristol universities and community organisations in the South Wales valleys and Bristol. The researcher will be working in one of two research projects which will form a collective learning platform for five further projects which will be co-produced by the academic and community partners.

Using a qualitative Geographical Information System (GIS) platform that has previously been employed to map perceptions of crime and safety in a number of areas across the UK, this project will develop its use amongst young people in a south Wales valleys’ neighbourhood to map their own experiences, perceptions and concerns.

The post-holder will support the young people in developing and using the App based device and will also be expected to use creative methods, possibly with local performing and/or visual artists, as a means of facilitating involvement in the research, encouraging alternative modes of expression and generating data. In addition community organising principles will be used to develop leadership skills in young people and to develop a mechanism for articulating and delivering change locally.

Informal enquiries can be directed to: Dr Eva Elliott, (ElliottE /at/, 02920 879138

This fixed term, part time post is for 28 hours per week for a period of 15 months from the 6th January 2014 to 31st March 2015.

Salary: £30,424 - £36,298 pro-rata (Grade 6).

Closing date: 2 December 2013.
