The Bennett Institute is a major, multi-disciplinary research centre committed to producing world-leading research on policy questions in the age of disruption.

The Research Assistants will undertake a range of research tasks in support of the Institute’s programmes of research which include: the determinants and measurement of productivity, prosperity and innovation in the modern economy; how and why ‘place’ matters in public policy; the relationship between science, technology and democracy; and the importance of well-being and public health (public health scholarships) as goals for policy-makers.
