IATL is looking for four Student Research Assistants who are enthusiastic about contributing to the Widening Participation (WP) agenda at the University. You will be required to research relevant background reading, develop interview questions, organise and facilitate focus groups, transcribe interviews and analyse and report findings in order to establish an understanding and awareness of issues faced by students from diverse backgrounds. In order to ensure our systems and processes here at Warwick are accessible to all, you will identify potential best practices across departments which could be beneficial to meet the different needs of our diverse student body going forward.
Each Research Assistant will be employed for 40 hours’ work, between December and April, at the rate of £10.63 per hour. The work is flexible and can be organised to suit your schedule. Although you will be required to attend a few meetings on campus, work can be done remotely.
You will be an undergraduate student with an understanding of diversity issues in a University setting, an interest in improving the student experience academically and socially and the ability to liaise with other students well. Some experience of social research (conducting interviews, focus groups, etc.) is desirable and knowledge of such methods essential.
