The Equalities Unit are looking to recruit a number of students who self-identify as coming from Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) backgrounds to help with the research phase of a project that aims to narrow the attainment gap for BME students at King’s.
The College is committed to narrowing the attainment gap for BME students, a trend that is observed within Higher Education nationally. In order to address this, it intends to develop a programme of activities to improve the range of support on offer and make the curriculum and teaching more inclusive.
To assist with the research phase of this project, they are looking to recruit a number of BME student researchers from a range of courses/subjects studying at any level. The opportunity is also open to students who have recently completed their degree in 2014.
The Researchers will help run focus groups with undergraduate BME students at King’s. The aim of the groups will be to collect information about the experiences and challenges faced by these students and suggested solutions for addressing the attainment gap. Hence the importance of the Researchers being from BME backgrounds, to ensure they can build maximum trust and rapport with the research participants whilst discussing potentially sensitive issues.
The total duration of the placement will be 2 months, from early October to end November. However given that this is a research project, the volume of hours worked during this period will vary throughout. The estimated total hours worked during this period will be 36 hours.
The researchers will be paid £8.80/hour.
Applicants will be asked to complete a brief application form to demonstrate their suitability for the role against the person specification. For a full application pack, please contact Debbie Epstein, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel: 020 7848 3767.
The closing date for applications is Friday 19 September.
