Want to investigate state and corporate power?

This is a great opportunity for someone looking to develop their critical thinking and wanting to take their first career steps with a policy and research charity.

The Centre for Crime and Justice Studies in partnership with The Barry Amiel and Norman Melburn Trust, is recruiting for a Research Fellow to investigate state and corporate power in criminal justice in England and Wales. Specifically:

  1. Undercover policing of political groups and social movements.
  2. Organisations and companies profiting from prisons and punishment.

This is a one year full time post with a tax free support grant of £16,553.

You’ll be someone who has an enquiring mind and critical perspective. Perhaps acquired through relevant experience or University study. We are looking for someone who likes digging around in challenging, contemporary subjects and who works well under their own initiative.

The Centre for Crime and Justice Studies is an independent educational charity that advances public understanding of crime, criminal justice and social harm. Through partnership and coalition-building, advocacy and research, we work to inspire social justice solutions to the problems society faces, so that many responses that criminalise and punish are no longer required.

Deadline for application: 9am, 3rd July 2017.

The post is only open to applicants who can provide proof of their eligibility to work in the UK. Unfortunately we can't accept applications from individuals wishing to work remotely because the experience of working from an NGO office is a large part of the Fellowship.
