The Law Department is seeking to recruit an experienced and enthusiastic researcher to work on an AHRC funded project designed to create Mass Grave Protection Guidelines.
The project will address the question of how best to protect Mass Graves to secure truth and justice for survivors. The project will do this by bringing together experts and stakeholders from the forensic sciences, criminal investigations, legal profession, NGOs, international organisations, security sector and survivor groups. Through a process of consultations and round-table discussions with these experts, Mass Grave Protection Guidelines will be developed and, once finalised, translated and disseminated to stakeholders.
Ideal candidates should demonstrate excellent legal research, organisational and communication skills. Prior knowledge of research project management is desirable.
This post is available part-time and fixed term basis for 21 months. The Project foresees the following working pattern throughout the 21-month period:
- Months 0-6 at 0.4 FTE
- Months 07-16 at 0.2 FTE
- Months 17-21 at 0.4 FTE
For further information and discussion, please contact Dr. Melanie Klinkner, Project Principal Investigator.
