This role is part of the University’s Rights Lab, a Beacon of Excellence, home to the world’s largest and leading group of modern slavery researchers.

You will work with PI Helen McCabe in the Rights Lab’s Law and Policy Programme on the AHRC-funded project “To Have and the Hold”: Understanding the Relationship Between Forced Marriage and Slavery”.

We are looking for a flexible research associate/fellow with diverse skills to deliver research, disseminate research findings, work with project partners and other key stakeholders, and represent the project at external events.

This work will support the development of case studies and typologies arising from survivor experiences. 

You will support the impact strategy of the project, and have the opportunity to use your initiative to identify, and apply for funding to pursue,new project areas. You will also be able to pursue ongoing professional development opportunities.
