The International Longevity Centre – UK (ILC-UK) is an independent, research led, think-tank dedicated to addressing issues of longevity, ageing and demographic change. Based in the heart of Westminster, much of our work is directed at the highest levels of government and the civil service, in London, local government and Brussels. Our policy and research remit is broad, and covers everything from pensions and financial planning, to health and social care, housing design, and age discrimination.
We are now looking for a Research Fellow with excellent writing skills and a strong passion for policy to join our busy and expanding team. Experience in quantitative research or a background in economics or health would be beneficial but certainly not essential.
This is a great opportunity for someone who has a genuine interest in the societal consequences of population ageing; an engaging writing style that can stimulate policy-makers; and an enquiring mind-set that can challenge the misconceptions around population ageing and older people.
We are looking for someone who is experienced and confident in managing their own research projects, to work on projects simultaneously and who has experience of developing project proposals and bid writing.
The ILC-UK envisages this post to be a full-time position but is happy to consider part-time arrangements, secondments or permanent placements for the right candidate. The post is initially offered on a year contract, with the strong possibility of extension and increase for the right candidate, who will then develop their own programmes of work in ageing research.
If this sounds of interest to you, then please send us a covering letter and your CV. Your covering letter should specify your suitability for that role (based on the responsibilities and specifications outlined in the job description below), and it should include reference to any of your published work or documents produced.
The starting salary will be set between £30,000 and £40,000, depending on experience.
If you have any queries about this position prior to applying, please contact Sally-Marie Bamford at email@example.com.
The closing date for applications is 23:00 on the 10 September 2014 via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include in the email subject field your name and the reference webilc.
Interviews will be conducted on Wednesday the 1st and Thursday the 2nd of October, please ensure your availability upon application.
Please note that if you have not heard from us within 3 days of the interview date, you have been unsuccessful in your application.
