Research Assistant-GATES (2x Part-Time, Fixed-Term)

University of Bath

The School of Management wish to appoint 2 Part-time Research Assistants to work on an ESRC funded project, focused on the governance arrangements for Drone deliveries.

 The project is a multi-disciplinary collaboration – law, management, public policy, etc. – between the Universities of Bath, Birmingham and, the West of England and aims to understand how governance “enables or constrains” delivery drone innovation. In this research we define ‘governance’ as the dynamic interrelations between policy, planning, regulation and practice. This is a critical practical and theoretical concern because inappropriate governance can both restrict innovation, and, equally, result in unacceptable risks. 

As a research assistant, you will be contributing to literature review, data collection, workshop organization and article writing. The posts would suit someone with a specialist UG, PG degree and/or PhD student across the various disciplines.

Further information:

 These are part-time roles (0.5 FTE) for a fixed-term period until December 2023.

 For an informal discussion about the role please contact Michael Lewis ([email protected]).
