Funding opportunity available working with Understanding Society data
Apologies for cross posting:
Our colleagues at Understanding Society, one of the largest household panel studies in the world, are accepting submissions for Policy Fellowships.
The 6-12 month funding will see Fellows undertake a social science project, using Understanding Society data, which has the potential to make a substantial contribution to informing and influencing public policy.
Research must be completed by 30 September 2019, with dissemination of findings within a further six month period, including submission to a peer review journal and presenting at academic conference in 2018/19.
Applications will be assessed on the basis of their scientific merit and potential for policy impact. Eligible researchers should be in a UK higher education institution, or eligible research organisation to apply.
Applications are welcome from early career researchers (<3 years post PhD) who should also identify a mentor in their own institution.
Funding will cover salary and on costs for up to 12 months with the planned project demonstrating achievability in the timescale of the project. The total budget should not exceed £60,000.
Deadline for submissions is 9 April 2018.
