Are you an early career researcher looking for your first challenge?  Do you have a background in qualitative and/or quantitative data collection, synthesis and analysis?  Do you want to be part of a short-term research project in one of the UK’s leading research-intensive Universities?

Leeds University Business School has recently been awarded Research England funding, under the Enhancing Culture Research funding stream, to carry out a scoping project to improve research culture through addressing inequality in research funding . 

This research project seeks to:

(1) Set out evidence-based actions to improve understanding of enablers and barriers to research funding applications and grant attainment by people from currently underrepresented groups.

(2) Identify gaps in current data and develop interventions focussed on research funding support, training & development (T&D), and research communications, with the aim of developing future research leadership skills and facilitating career progression of researchers and research support staff at Leeds University Business School and beyond.

An annual evaluation of the School’s data (T&D, grant applications, internal research support schemes) will be used to measure the effectiveness of each intervention.
