The University of Warwick wishes to appoint a Professor or Associate Professor in the Warwick Institute for Employment Research (IER). This post is primarily a research post, though some teaching might be undertaken. You will want to undertake research that makes a difference to policy and practice.
IER is a leading international centre for employment and labour market research. It is a self-funded department within the Faculty of Social Sciences. It delivers high-quality research, externally funded by a range of public and private sector organisations and research councils. This research is intended to contribute to shaping employment and labour market policy and practice. IER’s fields of research include, broadly: labour market assessment and forecasting; labour market classification and measurement; education, training and skills; gender and work; age and work; welfare, public policy and social inclusion; careers guidance and advice; job quality; social science Big Data; the future of work; and employment policy.
You will have a PhD or equivalent relevant research experience. You will have a demonstrable academic background in this field of work, and a substantial record of research and publication. You will be working within or across any of IER’s research fields or any others that are relevant to labour markets and employment.
You will be expected to lead as well as contribute to the work of an interdisciplinary team of researchers from economics, sociology, psychology and geography for example.
At Professorial level, you will be an internationally recognised labour economist or social scientist with strong quantitative and/or qualitative skills. At Associate Professor level, you be recognised at least nationally for this expertise. As a Professor, you will be expected to have proven ability in leading programmes of work. As an Associate Professor, you will be expected to be developing a clear programme of work. In both cases, you will have a strong record of securing external research funding, with research dissemination across the academic, policy and practitioner communities. Preferably, you will have experience of contract research and international collaborative research.
The University of Warwick is an equal opportunity employer and welcomes applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of their gender, race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation, or age. IER is committed to providing an inclusive work environment and we are looking for candidates whose values align with this. The Institute holds an Athena SWAN Bronze award, and the University holds an Athena SWAN Institutional Silver award. We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so. Previous administrative responsibilities are recognised in the shortlisting criteria. Our selection panels recognise that employment gaps may be due to personal circumstances and employment gaps will not be a consideration in our selection process.
