The Helena Kennedy Centre for International Justice is a leading centre for social justice and human rights. It provides a vibrant environment at the cutting edge of legal and criminal justice practice which prepares students for excellence in their chosen professional career. We are looking for a researcher who will be involved in developing and delivering international research and projects in the areas of gender-based violence, trafficking, modern slavery and human rights.

As an experienced qualitative researcher you will

  • Undertake research in the field outside of the UK, particularly in India
  • Undertake qualitative interviews and focus groups
  • Analyse qualitative data
  • Write research reports and academic articles
  •  Develop and submit research and project proposals for future research
  • Develop and maintain relationships with stakeholders in the UK and India

You must have sound knowledge of one or more of the following areas: trafficking, modern slavery, gender-based violence and human rights and knowledge and experience of undertaking research in international contexts, particularly in the developing world. Excellent planning and organisational skills and the ability to manage conflicting demands and meet deadlines are essential. You will be required to regularly travel internationally to undertake research and meet with project partners.

We particularly welcome applicants from underrepresented groups

For non-EU applicants, we are unlikely to be able to offer a certificate of sponsorship for this job (unless you are switching from a UK student visa), so you should only apply if you already have unrestricted permission to work in the UK.

We welcome applications for job-share, part-time and flexible working arrangements
