Research Fellow (WCPP)

Co-funded by the ESRC and Welsh Government, the Wales Centre for Public Policy bridges the gap between academia and practice by generating and mobilising evidence from research that has the potential to improve policy decisions and implementation.

The Centre is a member of the What Works network and collaborates with leading researchers from across the UK and internationally. It produces both policy oriented and academic research, and its staff have excellent access to senior policy makers and public service leaders. This enables them to achieve research impact and contribute to academic theory about policy making and delivery, and the ways in which evidence informs policy and practice – at national and local level.
We are seeking to recruit an outstanding researcher to play a leading role in the Centre’s research on these themes.

This is a unique opportunity to undertake high quality research working alongside academic colleagues and policy makers who are at the heart of current policy developments and debates including: Brexit, approaches to promoting economic growth, ways to close the educational attainment gap, the future funding of health service and social care, and the well-being of future generations.
You must have an interest in and understanding of public policy; a commitment to high quality research; excellent communication and organisational skills; and the ability to work lead research and work effectively as part of the Centre’s wider team of 20 full-time staff.
The post is full time and available from 1st April 2018 for until September 2022, with the possibly of renewal thereafter subject to future funding.

Salary: £41,212 – £47,722 per annum (Grade 7)

To enable the post-holder to focus full-time on research, there is no requirement to undertake teaching or administrative duties.
