The European Policies Research Centre, in the School of Government & Public Policy, is seeking to appoint a Research Assistant/ Research Associate – based at EPRC’s office in Delft - to contribute to the comparative European policy research undertaken in the Centre. The appointee would participate in academic and policy research programmes on regional development, particularly with respect to the design and regulation of national regional policies, EU Competition policy and regional aid, and the implementation of European Structural and Investment Funds. The post would suit an applicant with a relevant first degree and subsequent work experience on regional development or potentially a post-doctoral researcher in a relevant discipline. Applicants will need to have complete fluency in English and Dutch. The post would be for 22 months in the first instance, with the possibility of renewal thereafter. After an induction period at EPRC in Glasgow, the appointee would be based at the recently established EPRC Delft base at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft).
For applicants who additionally have a PhD, or equivalent work experience, and evidence of academic/policy publications, the appointment could be made at the level of Research Associate, Grade RS07 but would require evidence of more advanced involvement in research and knowledge exchange activities (such as development of research proposals, generating research income and managing parts of research projects).
