ICCM are seeking 2x Research Assistants (July to December) to join Dr Ruth Currie and Professor Lee Higgins in their evaluation of MOVE: Musicians and Organisers Volunteer Exchange, at York St John University

This is a fixed term freelance position from July - December 2021.

We are looking to welcome two self-directed and highly motivated post-graduate researchers to our team as Research Assistants. Our ideal candidates have confidence and experience of working as part of a research team and are experienced in participatory methods and facilitation and in developing research outputs that are accessible to diverse audiences.

Some of the essential criteria for this role include:

  • Have completed or currently be enrolled in a post-graduate degree in a related area of specialism (e.g. community music, intercultural learning, organizational development, cultural participation, international development)
  • Experience in producing written projects, proportionate to current career stage
  • An ability to write and communicate clearly in English (please note, English does not need to be your first language)
  • Experience of a range of data collection and analysis approaches (ideally, including participatory methods)
