Junior Research Fellowships: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Early Career Research in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences
Duties and ResponsibilitiesUCL Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS) invites applications for four Junior Research Fellows (JRFs) on an appointment of four months to begin on 1 April 2021. The IAS plans to convene a one-off research cluster in 2021 to identify specific actions to promote Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) at the early career research stage in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (AHSS). Four separate but related pilot projects will be conducted by four JRFs from April to July 2021. The output of these projects will be a co-authored report (10,000 words) summarising the research findings and making preliminary proposals for changes in policy and practice. The JRFs will spend 50% of their time on their EDI project and the other 50% working towards a publication from their doctoral research, with support from an IAS mentor. The two, equally important, purposes of these posts are i) to facilitate EDI research in this area; and ii) to support four talented ECRs in equipping themselves for an academic career.Duration of the posts are for four months from 1 April 2021 to 31 July 2021 with the possibility of an extension.
