Are you interested in British Islam and its interactions with UK state and society? Do you have experience of working with Muslim organisations, editing reports and websites, as well as organising events, promoting research and gathering feedback? Would you like to work on a collaborative project which aims to have a positive impact on the UK Hajj pilgrimage sector?
You will provide flexible research assistance to Professor Seán McLoughlin, who is working with the Council of British Hajjis to consult pilgrims, Hajj organisers and UK governance authorities as part of the process of writing the first independent report on the Hajj pilgrimage sector in the UK. This effort to develop impact from Prof. McLoughlin’s research is supported by the Leeds Social Sciences Institute (LSSI) with funding from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
You will hold an honours degree in the social sciences or arts and humanities or a comparable subject. A higher degree with a research component is also desirable. You will have first-hand research or other related experience of engaging with British Muslim communities and organisations, as well as a sound understanding of their relations to UK state and society. You will have strong communication skills, both verbally and in writing, and have the capacity to judge/vary what is required to connect with different audiences and influencers. Strong interpersonal skills and self-motivation are also essential, together with the ability to work independently and flexibly to deadlines as part of a small team. Competence in a community language (e.g. Urdu, Panjabi, etc) is also desirable.
You will need to have the flexibility to work more/less intensively at times but will be able to negotiate working patterns with Prof. McLoughlin. Working from home will sometimes be appropriate. Some limited, fully-funded travelling out of office hours and at weekends e.g. to meet community partners and/or to help at events in the North of England and the English Midlands will also be necessary, as will two overnight stays in London. The position is available immediately.
