Researcher and communications facilitator position

                Researcher / Workshop and communications facilitator  (50%)


opportunity has arisen to work with a research consultancy on an exciting
project focusing on research cultures in bioscience PhD programmes. Research
culture broadly refers to policies, attitudes and experiences relating to
equality and diversity, mental health, bullying and harassment, scientific
integrity, and other aspects of the context of science and biosciences
training. You can read more about the project here.


We are seeking a
creative, highly communicative person, who relishes working in participant
action research.


The person will facilitate workshops (online, and when
possible, face-to-face) and online communications, write up reports and
contribute to publications. Ideally, they will have either a background or
familiarity with biosciences, combined with some exposure to sociology,
history or philosophy of the biosciences, or science communication. They
should have a keen interest in using media in science contexts as a tool for
reflection. The work involves participant action research, using creative
qualitative research methods. Related skills and experience are highly
desirable and excellent writing skills are essential.


The position
includes some administrative duties.  Once it is easier to travel and meet in
person, there will also be some travel around the UK.


This is a one year,
fixed term, 50% position, with hours/days and location of work to be agreed.
There is a probation period of two months. Salary is £35 000 to 40 000 p.a.
pro rata depending on experience (that is, £17500 - 20 000 for 50%). Working
times and locations are flexible.


In keeping with the fact that this
project exists to enhance positive research culture,  of which diversity is a
central part, we strive to achieve diversity in our small team.


If you
are interested in applying, please write to
The deadline for applications is 16th August 2021. The process of selection
will be quick, with a writing sample requested from shortlisted candidates.
Starting date is early to mid-September.
