The University of Greenwich is investing in research across the institution.  As part of this, we are recruiting an early career Research Fellow to partner with existing Institute for Lifecourse Development (ILD) Centres, and develop their research career with us. The successful candidate will be appointed for a period of two years. 

As part of a significant long-term plan to build internationally leading research, practice and teaching in the Faculty, we have created a new multi-professional and multidisciplinary Institute for Lifecourse Development. The Institute works with our extensive network of external partners to focus our interdisciplinary expertise on addressing inequalities. The Institute is a key anchor resource where professionals, researchers and stakeholders from public, charitable and voluntary organisations can work together to develop effectively and life course solutions and tackle the grand challenges society faces through effective research, training and practice. The Centre for Inequalities specifically focuses on exploring, understanding and reducing inequalities across various domains (for example, in education, health, the community, and the workplace). The successful applicant will work with existing staff in the Centre for Inequalities to build on the interdisciplinary expertise in the Faculty, particularly within the disciplines of Psychology, Health, Social Care, and Education.  

We are specifically looking for researchers whose interests and expertise lie in areas relevant to inequalities, and who would work closely with experienced colleagues in the Centre for Inequalities as well as other Centres within the Institute.
