Research Ethics Committee recruitment

Last updated: 24 Dec 2019 Topics: News Type: News

We are looking for an experienced researcher to join our Research Ethics Committee

Carrying out research with children can help us to understand what children think about the issues that are affecting them. At the NSPCC, we believe it's vital to find out whether what we do makes a difference for families and children and balance the aims of the research with the safety and wellbeing of those who take part.

Our Research Ethics Committee is made up of experienced researchers from outside the NSPCC who review research proposals, provide an impartial review of the ethical implications of evaluation and research proposals and work collaboratively with researches to address any concerns.

We’re seeking expressions of interest from an experienced researcher who has:

  • a detailed understanding of the dimensions of ethics and issues related to research with children and young people
  • an understanding of the ethical issues associated with quantitative methods in the context of sensitive research with children and young people
  • substantive experience of research governance.
