Research Associate

University of York

ESRC Vulnerability and Policing Futures Research Centre

Closing date: 07 May 2024 

Are you an ambitious mixed methods researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a research interest in policing and vulnerable groups, and the interactions between them and other service providers?

You will work within the ESRC Vulnerability and Policing Futures Research Centre, jointly led from York and Leeds universities by Professor Charlie Lloyd and Professor Adam Crawford along with a team of over 25 leading researchers from diverse social science disciplines. Working with a large team that includes data scientists, qualitative researchers, Associated PhD researchers and professional support staff, and alongside 38 regional, national and international partners, you will play an important role, assuming significant fieldwork and data collection responsibilities, as well as contributing to data analysis and writing up the findings. With a doctorate (or equivalent research experience) relevant to this research field and proven experience of empirical research, you will initially work on two research projects, one on policing and mental illness, the other on policing and modern slavery. You will undertake a broad range of tasks from analysis of quantitative data to qualitative interviews and ‘ride-alongs’ with police officers. More broadly over the three years, you will be conducting fieldwork; synthesising existing evidence, developing research collaborations, report and article writing, and liaising with project partners.

For informal enquiries: please contact Professor Charlie Lloyd, Co-Director of the Centre, and the line manager for this post:
