Research Associate

University College London -Anthropology

Full time : 36.5 hours per week (100% FTE)

The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7. The salary range will be £32,699 to £39,523 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.

The Department of Anthropology at UCL is looking to appoint a Research Associate for an exciting new ERC-funded project entitled ‘Emerging Subjects of the New Economy: Tracing Economic Growth in Mongolia’.

The candidate should be able to carry out fieldwork for up to 9 months (or over three, three-month periods) and have some grasp of the Mongolian language. The duties and responsibilities expected of the candidate include taking part in the group’s reading and writing group, writing a monograph based on their research, and contributing a chapter to an edited volume based on a workshop. The project also plans for an exhibition showcasing visual aspects of the research.

The post is available from September 2014 and is initially funded for three years.

We are looking for a person with a background in anthropology, development studies, geography, sociology, political economy, or economics. The applicant should be familiar with issues pertaining to the Mongolian mining economy. It is envisaged that the research will focus on communities who live close to mining areas and/or engage in seasonal mining work, but is in no way restricted to this. 

Applications should include a covering letter, CV and the names and addresses of two referees.
