Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity: A Research Project on Gender


St John’s College wishes to appoint a Research Associate for a research project entitled ‘Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity: A Research Project on Gender’.


The aim of this project is to collect and analyse a variety of data concerning gender equality, under the broader umbrella of equality, diversity and inclusivity at St John’s College. The purpose is to establish an evidence base for activities, policies and practice within College, drawing on College data, but also on wider information from other Colleges, where available, and from within the University more generally. National and international data will also be incorporated, where appropriate. Analysis of quantitative and qualitative data will provide a foundation on which to assess areas for attention and development within the College. It will also enable monitoring of data to measure progress and improvement. This research will inform future College projects and initiatives in this area.


The post is offered for a fixed-term period of one year, with a starting date of 1 November 2018 (or as soon as possible thereafter).


The successful candidate will have a PhD, or equivalent research experience, along with a proven ability to undertake independent quantitative and qualitative research in a relevant discipline within the Humanities or Social Sciences. You will have excellent organisational skills and will be able to work independently without close supervision and to produce outstanding research working to deadlines.  Excellent written and oral communication skills are also essential.


The College offers a competitive benefits package including membership of the USS pension scheme, 36 days’ annual leave (inclusive of bank holidays), free lunch (up to a specified monetary limit) and free parking close to the College site.
