Researcher or Senior Researcher, Migration Policy Scotland, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK. Deadline: 14 May 2022.
A new, independent think tank seeks an enthusiastic and rigorous migration researcher who is able to help inform and frame migration policy discussion by effectively engaging decision makers and other audiences. Do you share our drive to promote a more constructive approach to migration? Can you help develop ways to shape and inform new approaches to migration through research, policy influence and inclusive engagement? Can you apply your strong grounding in research methods to real-world challenges in a changing context?
Migration Policy Scotland (MPS) was launched in 2021 and they are seeking a Researcher or Senior Researcher to work alongside their Director. The Trustees and Director can picture a number of ways in which an individual might help strengthen MPS and its work through this role. As a result, they are seeking EITHER a full-time Researcher or a part-time Senior Researcher but recognise that candidates may have skills and experiences that cut across the two roles. This is a remote working opportunity and could be based anywhere in Scotland, but it is likely to involve regular meetings, particularly in Edinburgh.
The successful candidate will combine a commitment to intellectual rigour with a keen strategic awareness and the ability to communicate the results of research to audiences in policy, the third sector and, possibly, the media.
