Profile

Description:
As part of a 3-year ESRC-funded protect titled “Understanding the research and policy needs of English coastal communities: a new coastal classification” we are seeking to appoint a high calibre Research Fellow with excellent qualitative skills, with some experience of quantitative data collection and analysis also desireable. The Research Fellow will play a key role in helping to plan, organise, manage and facilitate project advisory and steering group meetings, face-to-face and online stakeholder workshops and focus groups, summarise, analyse and write-up workshop and focus group findings, and aid in the design, set-up, dissemination and analysis of an online stakeholder survey. The Research Fellow will also be required to assist with project management duties. The project is led by Professor Sheena Asthana and will engage stakeholders in the development of a classification of coastal communities that can support applied actionable research and policy development. This will be informed by the analytical work undertaken by the Research Fellow, who will be expected to play a significant role communicating their findings to stakeholders, both in person and through the development of a user-orientated web-based interface to data and project findings. Coastal communities have been identified as an important target for the levelling-up agenda and the Research Fellow will join collagues at the University of Plymouth’s Centre for Coastal Communities (CfCC). Led by Professors Asthana and Agarwal, the CfCC aims to produce world leading research that provides the evidence base for policy development that will lead to measurable improvements to the lives of those living in coastal communities in the South-West, the UK and worldwide. The CfCC brings together over 30 academic staff and has developed a strong external profile. The CfCC was the first of its kind in the UK and we have played an important role in raising awareness about the coastal dimension to economic, health and education inequalities. Please see the CfCC website for further details of the work that we do. You will be based within the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Business and in the internationally renowned Plymouth Business School but working across the University with colleages located in Plymouth’s Medical School and the School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics. Plymouth Business School provides an enterprising environment that drives sustainable prosperity and enables our students and partners to achieve their full potential. The School has redoubled their commitment to good business practice and social, economic and environmental responsibility. Plymouth Business School's mission is to put business-ready graduates on a path to a successful career and a happy life by creating confidence, resilience and the ability to be nimble – this is embedded into our overseas and domestic, undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, and we are ranked 7th in the Financial Times ‘Teaching Power’ ranking*. Plymouth Business School has a research active community producing high quality trans- and interdisciplinary research of local, national and international importance. The School works collaboratively, engaging with individuals, businesses and organisations from the private, public and third sectors to deliver impactful research that is making a difference to societies, economies and cultures around the world. You are required to have a PhD in a relevant subject or an equivalent international qualification, or a commensurate level of experience/recognition/profile in the private or public sector. You will also be interested in a career in the Higher Education Sector, specifically in research, and thus need to possess excellent communication and team working skills. Please demonstrate how you meet the essential criteria outlined in the knowledge, qualifications, training, and experience elements of the job description in your supporting statement. For an informal discussion to find out more about the role then please contact Professor Sheela Agarwal: by email at **** Interviews are likely to take place week commencing 23rd October 2023 and you will be notified if you have been shortlisted or not.
