Research Associate (Part-time, fixed-term)

Salary: £28,695-£37,394 p.a. pro rata


Applications are invited for a Research Associate position, working 0.6 fte, and starting on 1 July 2015.

You will work on a project funded by the British Council's Newton Fund, which involves collaborative research in Kazakhstan between the Cambridge Faculty of Education and the Graduate School of Education at Nazarbayev University, Astana.

This research examines the psychological and educational well-being of school students in Kazakhstan. It will have special emphasis on students from vulnerable populations to improve their social integration, welfare and lifelong prospects for employment. To give range to the enquiry, it will also pay attention to children in elite schools where high academic expectations in response to heavy investment in educational reform may put individual children at considerable risk.

Appointment at Research Associate level requires a PhD in a relevant field of study, or equivalent research training, experience and achievement.

Please see the further particulars for full details of the post and criteria for appointment.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available until 31 March 2017 in the first instance.
