The University of Sheffield is looking to appoint a full-time post-doctoral research associate for 24 months, who will work on an ESRC-funded project looking at The Transitions of Young Workers in the UK Labour Market: Consequences for Careers, Earnings, Health and Wellbeing. This project is one of seven funded under the ESRC’s £3.9m Transforming Working Lives programme.
The research associate will be based in the Department of Economics, but will also collaborate  with team members based in the School of Sociological Studies and Sheffield University Management School, as well as with the Department for Work and Pensions, the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD) and other external stakeholders. In addition, there will be opportunities to participate in joint activities involving other projects funded under the ESRC’s TWL programme.
The closing date is 5th December.
