We are looking to recruit a Research Associate to join the Work, Organisation and Employment Relations Research Centre (WOERRC). You will join a vibrant and growing group of work and employment researchers and be a full and active participant in WOERRC’s research activities. In particular, you will assist with the preparation of funding applications and work closely with group members in collecting and analyzing qualitative and quantitative data and writing high-quality papers, reports and other appropriate outputs. The specific programme of work to be undertaken will be agreed once you are appointed. However it is likely to include assisting in the interrogation of largescale official datasets (e.g. the 2015 European Working Conditions Survey and the UK’s Understanding Society Survey) to examine a number of inter-related issues related to job quality and working conditions, which might include: (a) the consequences of different national employment and welfare regimes for job quality; (b) relationships between job quality, innovation and performance outcomes at the individual and organisational levels; and (c) the consequences of good and bad jobs for ‘healthy ageing’
