012525 - UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1, UCD School of Education, One year (with possibility for extension)
Ideally commencing September 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter

The UCD School of Education is seeking to appoint a post-doctoral researcher to work on the quantitative component of Ireland's first national longitudinal study of children's lived experiences of primary schooling in Ireland: Children's School Lives (CSL). This project is funded by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment. The overarching CSL study is designed to capture the perceptions of two cohorts of children, parents, teachers and school leaders, across a six-year period, with a focus on children's academic attainment, engagement, rights and well-being, diversity and inclusion, school and teaching cultures, and educational transitions.

This is a high-calibre position that will offer the successful applicant a rare opportunity to work on a ground breaking national longitudinal study of children in primary schools in Ireland. We are looking for a postdoctoral level researcher who can contribute to all operational aspects of the quantitative study, but will take a lead role in data management. Ideally this person will have experience working with large-scale, longitudinal quantitative datasets, although support for the project methods will be given throughout the post under the supervision and direction of the CSL management team.
