NCSEHE Equity Fellowship — Research Associate opportunity

NCSEHE 2020 Equity Fellow David Eckstein is currently seeking a part-time/casual researcher to assist with a research ethics application and the design, administration and analysis of national surveys, round table discussions and select university case studies.

About the Equity Fellowship — Meaningful jobs for graduates with disability: From luck to business as usual

The Fellowship project aims to add disability to the national conversation about graduate employment by identifying best-practice initiatives and developing open access tools for all universities to use.

Graduate employability outcomes are not equitable for students with disability. In a rapidly changing labour market, they are likely to get worse without targeted efforts. Currently, few universities are proactively addressing this issue. Swinburne University of Technology is leading innovation with its AccessAbility Careers Hub, a partnership between Careers & Employability, AccessAbility Services and WISE Employment. Building on the experience of the Hub as well as primary data collection and consultation with key stakeholders across Australia, the Fellowship will provide evidence-informed guidance to universities to develop institutionally-specific strategies to support students with disability transition to the workforce. As an Equity Fellow, David will establish a national community of practice and host an inaugural summit on strategies to support graduate employment outcomes of students with disability.

The Research Associate position

The position would suit a current PhD candidate or postdoctoral researcher. Experience with conducting qualitative and quantitative analysis is required.

Expressions of interest are open until the end of January 2020. The project will commence in February 2020.
