Professor/Professor in Quantitative Research for Education, University of Bristol - appointment vacancy
As part of its strategy to advance quantitative research in the social sciences, the University of Bristol is seeking to appoint an outstanding researcher with interests in the development and/or application of advanced quantitative methods to any aspect of educational research. The appointment will be made at the Reader or Professor level and will be held in the Graduate School of Education, and will involve working closely with the Centre for Multilevel Modelling and others within the School and Faculty.
Candidates should have a track record in leading social research using advanced quantitative research methods. Applications are particularly encouraged from candidates with experience of handling large and complex datasets, and with expertise in multilevel modelling, longitudinal data analysis or structural equation modelling. It is not a requirement that quantitative expertise has been applied to education, although candidates will be expected to demonstrate how their experience and expertise will be applied to educational issues. Candidates should also be willing and enthusiastic to further strengthen postgraduate teaching in quantitative methods both within the School and the wider Faculty.
