Are you passionate about research? And are you committed to inclusion, diversity, equity and access in academia? Then maybe this job is something for you:
The Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access (IDEA) Center at EUR works at an integral approach on several topics such as HR, Marketing and Communication, Inclusive Education, Student Engagement, Academic Outreach, and Monitoring and Research. We are looking for a Junior Researcher within our Monitoring and Research pillar.
The Monitoring and Research pillar has four main goals:
- To learn more about diversity, inclusion, equity, and access at EUR (e.g., What data do we have? What do these data tell us? What is going well, and which challenges do we face?)
- To evaluate the use and effectiveness of our IDEA policies, interventions, and products (e.g., did our intervention work as we planned? Why, or why not? Are the changes we accomplished durable?)
- To support and facilitate both scientific and policy research at EUR regarding IDEA topics (e.g., how can we help to make research teams, research content and research methodology more inclusive, diverse, equitable and accessible?)
- To disseminate our findings by giving presentations at conferences and to write academic and policy papers/reports for internal and external stakeholders.
As a junior researcher, you will contribute to each of these goals. This involves performing qualitative and/or quantitative research projects. For instance, you might be asked to do reviews of relevant literature or other documents; to perform interviews or focus groups with historically underrepresented staff or students; to use existing registration data to get insights into the composition of our staff and/or student population; or to develop and analyze surveys on IDEA topics. Some projects will lead to academic publications, whereas others will lead to internal policy reports, white papers, or other (international) professional publications.
