The School for Policy Studies in collaboration with the University of Bristol’s Interaction Research Group are looking to recruit a part time Research or Senior Research Associate.

The applicant will contribute to an innovative AHRC follow-on funded project led by Dr Debbie Watson.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a strong interdisciplinary team to redesign and develop, user test, and explore routes to market for ‘trove’, a product for children in care/ adopted children to self-curate and record stories of their precious belongings in a keepsake box as part of their ongoing life story work.

The role will involve working directly with reference groups of children in care and care providers as well as intensive research with a therapeutic residential school for children where it is expected the post holder will spend significant time observing how trove is used and collecting data with children, teachers and therapists to enable ongoing development of the prototype and to understand how trove can be used therapeutically.

You will work in close collaboration with academic researchers in policy studies and computer science as well as project partners and a creative designer.
