Job at the University of Birmingham: Research Fellow on ESRC project – Prison Visitation and Recidivism

I am advertising for a Research Fellow to join the research team for the ESRC-funded project ‘Breaking the Cycle: Prison Visitation and Recidivism in the UK’. It’s a short contract, to start asap, so that the post-holder can work alongside Marie Hutton before she departs for a Lecturing position.

The role of the Research Fellow would be to create and contribute to the creation of knowledge by undertaking a specified range of activities within a specific research project that aims to examine the links between prison visitation and reoffending. The post holder would be primarily responsible for interviews with domestic visitors to a prison facility.
