Research Associate – German specialist
(Two-year fixed-term from 1 June 2019 until 31 May 2021)
Salary: £33,199 to £39,609
Application deadline: 15 April 2019
The Department of Social & Policy Sciences at the University of Bath wishes to appoint a Research Associate to take the lead on analysis of the German Socio-Economic Panel and linked employee-employer panel data (LIAB, LEEP-3), and the German part of a field experiment, under the European Research Council-funded project, NEWFAMSTRAT. The postholder will be directly responsible for preparing working hypotheses and appropriate analyses related to Germany in particular, and in conjunction with the other two countries. This includes producing independent and collaborative publications, conference presentations, and materials for public dissemination. The successful candidate must have a PhD in a subject area of direct relevance to this project. Training and expertise in analysing large-scale longitudinal data sets is absolutely essential, as are very strong data management and quantitative analysis skills and proficiency in using STATA. Experience with managing and analysing linked employee-employer panel or administrative/register data is preferred. Working knowledge of day-to-day German is essential, as is fluency in English. Candidates should have a developing track record of publications in highly-ranked academic journals.
The post is full-time on a fixed-term contract, which cannot extend beyond 31 July 2021; however the start date is somewhat flexible. The position includes some travel, perhaps including some extended visits in Germany.
