Join the ParticipatoryResearch@Bath Team

Posted in: Leading Public Engagement

As we enter the second phase of the ParticipatoryResearch@Bath, we're on the hunt for someone to join the team and help deliver this project.


The ParticipatoryResearch@Bath project involves working with researcher and professional services staff at the University and local communities to develop and deliver a programme of activities to create sustained and sustainable change towards meaningfully involving citizens involvement in research. You can find out what we've been up to so far by visiting the ParticipatoryResearch@Bath web pages.

The role

In this role, you will be responsible, with the Deputy Head of Public Engagement, for the management and delivery of the ParticipatoryResearch@Bath project. You will have oversight of a range of activities, such as running training and professional development opportunities, managing a funding scheme, convening and facilitating discussions with community groups and commissioning inquiry-based research activities. The full details of the approach and activities can be found in the Phase Two ParticipatoryResearch@Bath Project Plan.

About you

You do not have to have done this sort of work before. We are looking for someone with an organised and flexible approach to managing projects, someone who believes in the value of participation, and with the ability to interact with people in a manner that builds mutually beneficial relationships.
