Research Officer

Grade 7: £32,236 - £39,609 p.a.

28 June 2019

The Department of Education at the University of Oxford wishes to appoint a Research Officer to work with a team finalizing the development and conducting the standardisation of an automated (tablet based) Language Assessment tool (ATLAS). The postholder will provide guidance to junior members of the research group including part-time research assistants and/or project volunteers. The project will be directed by Professor Charles Hulme, Dr Gill West and Professor Maggie Snowling.

The main duties of the postholder will be to assist with recruiting schools, testing children in nursery and primary classrooms and the collation and analysis of data.

Whilst the role is a Grade 7 position, we would be willing to consider candidates with potential but less experience who are seeking a development opportunity, for which an initial appointment would be at Grade 6 (£28,660 - £34,189 p.a.) with the responsibilities adjusted accordingly. This would be discussed with applicants at interview/appointment where appropriate. For a grade 6 appointment you will hold a first degree in psychology, speech and language therapy, Education or a related discipline together with relevant experience of working with young children. For a grade 7 appointment, in addition you will hold or be close to completing a PhD in a relevant discipline.

Good interpersonal, IT and organisational skills are essential, as is the ability to liaise with schools and the research team. You should be highly motivated and be able to work independently and to meet strict deadlines. Experience of working with quantitative data and good skills in Excel and common statistical packages are required.

The post is full-time for a fixed-term until 31 August 2021 in the first instance.
