We are seeking an enthusiastic and ambitious Post-Doctoral Research Fellow to be part of this new project. You will be conducting research to understand and explore attitudes to learning for disabled and autistic people and their communities. We will use a range of data collection methods, including mobile, online, and in-person survey-based approaches. You will analyse data through a combination of qualitative, thematic methods, quantitative statistical techniques, and data science approaches.

This exciting project is funded by the prestigious Wellcome Trust Hub. It is a multi-disciplinary collaboration between Arts organisation Heart n Soul, the Creative Computing Institute (UAL), UCL Centre for Research in Autism and Education, the Royal College of Art Helen Hamlyn Centre, and a number of other key individuals, artists and practitioners from both within and outside the disabled community. This project breaks new ground, placing people with learning disabilities and autism at the heart of research and public engagement.

You will have a Doctoral qualification or equivalent experience in either Sociology, Psychology, Human Factors, or an intersecting discipline. You will have research experience in a relevant area, such as accessibility, learning disabilities research, autism research or related field. You will also have experience of qualitative and quantitative research tools such as NVivo, R and / or Python. Experience using machine learning for data analysis would also be an advantage.

If you have any queries you may contact ADS Recruitment Team via email ADSRecruitment@arts.ac.uk or telephone: 020 7514 2965.
