We at the Sheffield Institute for International Development are looking to recruit a Research Associate.

The position is a two year post-doctoral research fellowship, which the post-holder will use to pursue a major research project of their own design in the general field of International Development and that accords with the vision and mission statement of SIID. The primary criterion for candidate selection is excellence. The posts will be of particular interest to applicants who have recently completed or are close to completing a PhD in a related subject.

In addition to undertaking their research, SIID post-doctoral fellows are asked to contribute to the intellectual and social life of the SIID community. For this post this includes co-responsibility for curating our events programme and supporting our social media strategy (blog and twitter). This post is aligned with SIID’s strategic priority of diversifying and de-centering our reading and intellectual approaches to include concepts and theories emerging from the global South and our events will reflect this.

At SIID we celebrate diversity and we particularly encourage applications from members of groups that are currently underrepresented in UK higher education.

2-year post, fixed term, Grade 7, Salary range: £31,866 – £40,322 per annum

Closing date: 31 October 2019
