This role is full time and fixed term with a planned end date of 31 December 2018.

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Politics and Youth Studies.

The researcher will be supported in developing their own research agenda from this data collection and in developing their own publication-standard outputs.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited for interview and assessment in the first half of May 2018.
