Research Assistant at University of Cambridge

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral associate position in psychology to join University of Cambridge. The funds for this position are available for two years. The deadline for applying is October 24, 2018.

The Faculty of Education at the University of Cambridge wishes to appoint a 0.2 FTE Research Assistant to work within PEDAL (the Faculty of Education’s research centre for play in education, development and learning) on the development of PEDAL Hub.

PEDAL Hub is an online searchable database of play research and related resources. At present it contains academic research abstracts with associated links and a suite of ‘Play Pieces’ (seminal play research articles, theories and concepts summarised for a non-academic audience). In time, PEDAL Hub will be the main portal for all of PEDAL’s research, communications and public engagement activity with links to publications, events, blog posts, video/audio, podcasts and more.

PEDAL Hub has been developed and market tested with a view to a public launch in November/December 2018.

Applicants will have a Masters degree in Education or Psychology, with a specific interest in play research. They will also have experience of website development using Drupal; knowledge of scholarly communication and working with academic publishers; and ideally a proven commitment to making academic research more accessible to a wide audience.

The post will be managed by Professor Paul Ramchandani (Director, PEDAL Research Centre).

For full details of criteria for appointment and duties of the post please see the Further Particulars for the post.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 1 year in the first instance.

Please ensure that you upload a detailed curriculum vitae and a letter of application indicating how you would contribute to the responsibilities of the post.

We hope to hold interviews on the afternoon of 07 November 2018.
