Dr Rachel Condry is looking for a research assistant to conduct research on curriculum diversity and inclusive teaching practice. The aim of this work is to collate resources that can be used in developing the equalities and diversity work of the Faculty.

Duration and hours

The work is to start immediately and will run until 30th July 2018.

The hours will be flexible from week to week, with an average of eight hours a week, and will not total more than 50 hours.


The post will report to Dr Rachel Condry, Athena SWAN Coordinator.


  • A general understanding of the social sciences and the field of law, criminology, or related disciplines is essential.

  • A reasonable understanding of equality issues, broadly defined.

  • Knowledge of debates on curriculum diversity and inclusive teaching practice is desirable but not essential as the role will focus on internet and bibliographical research to find relevant material and examples of good practice.

  • The post requires excellent writing and research skills, and access to online search tools and libraries.

  • Good admin and IT skills are essential.

  • The work can be done in any place where you have access to a good library and online resources, but you must be able to travel to Oxford for occasional meetings.


This post is open to current graduate research students in the Law Faculty or recently completed graduate taught students who meet the criteria.

The hours are in line with the restrictions on working hours for current graduate research students.

Rate of Pay*

Short term, casual work (up to 12 weeks) is paid at a lower rate of holiday pay: This will be paid at the standard research assistant rate of £14.80/hour plus holiday pay of £1.78 = total of £16.59/hour


This post is funded by the Law Faculty under the remit of Athena SWAN.
