Junior Research Fellowships: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Early Career Research in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences

Job description

Duties and Responsibilities

UCL 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.

Key Requirements
Candidates should have completed a PhD or equivalent in Arts, Humanities or Social Sciences, awarded no more than 18 months before 1 April 2021 and have expert knowledge within their chosen area of research. They will be required to carry out a pilot research project on EDI among early-career scholars in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; to collaborate with colleagues in the research cluster, the IAS and the wider UCL community to foster synergies with other work on EDI at IAS and at UCL; and to contribute to a co-authored report (2,500 out of 10,000 words) setting out the research findings and making recommendations for policy change and/or further research.They will also work on developing publications from their doctoral research and/or a post-doctoral project, and participate as an active member of the IAS, contributing to seminars and other events aimed at sharing research outcomes.
