Overview Of Role

Rothamsted Research would like to appoint a new social scientist in or around the area of agri-food research.  We are looking for an enthusiastic and driven individual capable to develop, secure funding for and manage independent research projects, publishing the findings in high-impact, peer-reviewed journals. We are open to applications from across all subdisciplines within the social sciences including (but not exclusive to): behaviour change, policy and practice, economics, and both qualitative and quantitative research. The role holder will be expected to:

  • Collaborate with other researchers based at Rothamsted to support interdisciplinary research into agriculture and food (e.g. by adding a social science perspective).
  • Lead research projects within their specialised subject area, and to collaborate on larger funding proposals.
  • Publish research in high impact subject and interdisciplinary journals.
  • Develop an externally funded Fellowship (or other substantial proposal) over the course of the 36-months in effort to extend the post into the future.

This exciting opportunity is not tied to a particular externally funded project and therefore has a lot of flexibility. It can thought of as akin to a 3-year Fellowship to pursue research of interest to the applicant and Rothamsted Research, with experience in social science research related to agriculture and/or the natural world desirable to support this. At interview, you will be required to pitch your ideas and aims for this post, outlining how they complement and align to the Rothamsted science strategy: https://www.rothamsted.ac.uk/science-strategy.

This position is a full-time, research-only position for a fixed-term of 36 months, with a salary in the range of £37,890 to £41,438 per annum.

Closing Date:  31st January 2022
 
Interviews:  16-18 February 2022
