COMPAS is seeking to appoint a researcher on a part-time (0.5 FTE, though some variation in hours may be possible), fixed-term basis for 12 months from 1 September 2014, based on the Banbury Road, Oxford.

You will be a part of the Migration Observatory, a project that provides independent and authoritative analysis and accessible data on migration and migration policy issues in the UK. You will have responsibility for updating material in the Migration Observatory website, as well as contributing new material and providing support for other outputs. You will also take a key role in exploring how to maximise the potential of our existing resources to produce informative, attractive and interactive representations of migration data.

You must have experience working with STATA, excellent knowledge of quantitative social scientific methods, and experience in conducting analysis with those methods and presenting results. Familiarity with UK migration data and the Labour Force Survey (in the UK or other country) is desirable.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 6 August 2014. Interviews are provisionally scheduled for 13 August 2014. See the further particulars for full details of the application process.
