The UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES) is seeking to appoint two part-time (50% FTE) Research Assistants with Polish or Romanian language expertise. This is an excellent opportunity to work with an international team of three renowned experts of party politics: Raimondas Ibenskas (lead investigator, University of Bergen), Sona Golder (Penn State University, PSU) and Allan Sikk (UCL SSEES). The Research Assistants will help the team with database creation and data collection on Romania and Italy, or Poland and collaborate with the team on research.
We are looking for applicants with a Master’s degree in political science or related disciplines, especially (part time) PhD students. You will need some experience with social science research, data collection or analysis, and Excel skills (R desirable). Bulk of the work can be done remotely, but you are expected to visit UCL SSEES regularly. Note that if you are coming to the UK from abroad and are fully vaccinated, you would not need to self-isolate on your arrival.
Closing date for applications: 31 October 2021
Start: 1 January 2022 or promptly thereafter
