Researcher (Social Integration)
The British Academy

Job Code: A15024
Location: London
Closing date: February 19, 2017

The British Academy is looking to hire a Researcher (applications from post doc researchers or PhD candidates would be welcomed) to provide support on a recently launched policy project Social Integration.

About the project

The Academy has launched “If you could do one thing…” Local actions to promote social cohesion, which aims to offer practical interventions that can be used by local authorities, businesses and voluntary organisations to improve social cohesion in their communities. The project is designed to offer realistic solutions, with the understanding of the constraints imposed in a current climate of low resources within Local Authorities. The project will be supported by a call for evidence, and will be accompanied by a set of case studies on the integration experiences of recently arrived migrants, supported with funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

We are looking to hire a researcher on a short-term basis to produce analysis and summaries, and to produce case studies of locally-based interventions which aim to assist the integration of recently-arrived migrants, both children and adults. (See end note for more information on the case studies)

Key responsibilities

  • Conducting preliminary desk-based research on social integration towards a literature review
  • Analysing written evidence submissions from a call for evidence as part of the preliminary desk-based research, and summarising key findings in a summary paper/literature review
  • Gathering a selection of case studies on the integration experiences of recently arrived migrants by conducting phone/in-person interviews, as well as observational analysis, to inform the case studies
  • Working with the British Academy policy team and the project’s expert working group to finalise the case study report in a consistent style and language

About the candidate

  • Research experience including fieldwork
  • Good knowledge of migration and integration issues would be helpful
  • Good knowledge of a variety of research methodologies, including mixed methods, and ability to apply these in small scale research projects
  • Excellent writing and analysis skills
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team
  • Ability to work to tight deadlines and to manage own workload

About the role

The Researcher will be based at the British Academy (10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH) 2-3 days a week for up to 4 months. Salary: a day rate will be agreed with the successful candidate.

To Apply

Deadline: Please send a CV, cover letter and one example of written work to Jamiesha Majevadia This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by midnight on Sunday 19th February 2017.

Endnote

These local interventions would primarily be undertaken by third-sector organizations or community groups (including faith-based organisations), but could also be local government or private sector initiatives. The key feature they all share is that they should not rely on central legislation or require extensive funding; they should be interventions which it would be realistic for either a Local Authority or a small local body, such as a community organisation, to undertake. The case studies should have a good geographical spread UK-wide; they should also be chosen in order to give a variety of different aspects of integration.
