This is an exciting opportunity for two experienced qualitative researchers to join an interdisciplinary research team working on an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded study: ‘Governing parental opioid use: a relational ethnography’. The aim of the study is to critically examine how parents who use drugs and their families engage with health and social care services, with a focus on the quality of care that families receive, the extent to which their needs are met, and how the governance of parents affects outcomes for families. We are seeking two experienced researchers to: recruit and consent participants into the study; assist with the facilitation of stakeholder meetings; critically analyse policy/practice documents; conduct ethnographic field work, including qualitative interviews and focus groups with families and professionals; undertake qualitative data analysis, including managing data using software such as NVivo; contributing to project publications, report writing, dissemination activities; and research-related administrative tasks.

This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 36 months.

The selection process will include a panel interview and a presentation. Interviews to take place w/b 16th September.
