We are looking for an Erasmus+ trainee to work at the University of Oxford Department of Education on an international research project on apprenticeships that aims to link the apprenticeship provision with countries’ economic and social development and involves putting together a global database and using appropriate cross-sectional data analysis methods. The Principal Investigator of the research project is Maia Chankseliani, Associate Professor of Comparative and International Education.
The traineeship can last from a minimum of 9 months to a maximum of 12 months (the start date and the duration are negotiable). The trainee must
- be a master’s or doctoral student or a recent graduate in any social science discipline from a higher education institution holding an Erasmus+ Charter for Higher Education (the list of these available from: https://eacea.ec.europa.eu/erasmus-plus/actions/erasmus-charter_en)
- possess excellent writing skills in English
- have excellent quantitative data analysis skills
- be highly motivated and proactive
Candidates with demonstrated experience of researching apprenticeships / vocational education and training / labour markets will be given a preference.
It is hoped that the trainee will receive an Erasmus+ grant as a contribution to their travel and subsistence costs. Further details on this scheme can be obtained from https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/opportunities-for-individuals/trainees/students_en
