OTJR: Call for Research Coordinators (Deadline: Monday, 11 March 2024)

The Oxford Transitional Justice Research Group (OTJR) is looking for 2 Research Coordinators for a project on ‘Best Practices and Strategies for Outreach to Affected Communities in the Transitional Justice Context’.

We are in the process of finalising this research project for an international non-profit organisation. The research project focuses on outreach strategies relating to international crimes prosecutions, particularly in post-conflict and post-dictatorship contexts and especially where such crimes are considered emblematic of harms suffered by many victims or where the cases are considered especially sensitive for political reasons. For more information on outreach initiatives in the area of transitional justice, see here and here.

The project considers transitional justice processes and outreach strategies in national jurisdictions, including Colombia, Guatemala, Tunisia, Rwanda, and Liberia.

We are looking for two short-term Research Coordinators for this project. Applications are welcome from graduate students (taught and research) from law, international relations, area studies, public policy, political science, and other backgrounds. To be eligible for these positions, you have to be a student or staff member at the University of Oxford.

As a Research Coordinator, you will be expected to review draft reports authored by our former research team on the national jurisdictions of interest, and undertake any additional research required to fill gaps in the report.

Research Coordinators are expected to begin work in Week 9 of Hilary Term 2024. We aim to finalise the report by the end of April 2024.

The deadline for applications is Monday, 11 March 2024. Interested applicants are requested to submit a CV (of not more than two pages) and a short cover letter to OTJR’s Co-Convenor, Gayathree, at gayathree.kalliyatthazhathuveetil@law.ox.ac.uk. Any questions about the role and the application process can be directed to Gayathree.
