They should also be able to supervise research projects at undergraduate and master?s level and develop skills to supervise at doctoral level. The successful individual will actively seek to ensure the wider social impact of their research.

We encourage applications from candidates who have expertise in the study of race and racism in education broadly conceived (e.g. whether in institutional settings such as schools and universities or in communities and social movements). Specialisms in one or more of the following areas are particularly encouraged: Black studies, Indigenous studies, critical race theories; or intersectional studies of class, disability, sexuality and/or gender ? demonstrating how these are brought to bear on education theory, policy and practice relating to race and racism.
