You will also be responsible for informing and advising the Principal Investigator, Dr Naomi Winstone, of emerging issues for follow-up as part of on-going risk assessment, and disseminating key findings to strategic bodies.
You will have experience in project management, knowledge and understanding of quantitative and qualitative data analysis. Knowledge of research-informed pedagogical practice in higher education, and meta-analytic methods, would be advantageous.
