The University of Kent is seeking an Eastern ARC (EARC) Research Fellow in the area of Quantitative Social Sciences (QSS). 

Kent’s EARC QSS Fellow will be appointed from 1 August 2014 at Grade 7 (£32,590 to £36,661), initially for a period of five years during which time s/he will be supported to gain his/her own external funding. If successful, the Fellow will be considered for a permanent lectureship after five years.

The Fellow will act as the focus and catalyst for interdisciplinary research within Kent and will facilitate interaction with the other Eastern ARC partners. The University is not being prescriptive as to the focus of research for the Fellow; instead, the applicant will be asked to submit a research proposal that fits within one of three broad areas, with a plan to form collaboration across the three universities. The areas are: Inequality, Conflict, and Migration; Lifespan, Lifestyle, and Decision-making; and Environment, Energy, and Security.

In addition, the Fellow will work with Kent’s Eastern ARC Thematic Lead to identify PhD projects for two Eastern ARC Students.

The Person
The successful candidate will have a PhD (or equivalent) in a relevant topic and previous experience of running and contributing to workshops, symposia and conferences.

Publication of research that meets the criteria for submission to the Research Excellence Framework is essential as is the ability to identify new opportunities for collaborations that contribute towards Eastern ARC.

Closing date for applications : 6th March 2014
