Family law and family violence researchers

Job Number: 
Closing date: 
1 October 2017

We’re recruiting a number of researchers to work on a range of new projects in our highly regarded Family Law and Family Violence team.

If you’re a researcher with a quantitative and/or qualitative skill set with exposure to research projects involving sensitive issues for families you could be our ideal candidate.  Project management experience and stakeholder management skills in a research setting would also be highly regarded.

In addition, if you’re a researcher with legal qualifications and experience, or experience in law related research, we’d love you get in touch, as one of these projects involves a study concerning cross-examination in family law cases involving family violence. 

The roles span a range of levels for non-ongoing contracts of between six and 18 months in the first instance, with extensions to a maximum of three years possible in the future.  Full-time or part-time work will be considered and we offer a flexible workplace with great benefits. 

Interested? Email a copy of your full CV, together with a cover letter to Human Resources. In your letter, tell us how your skills, knowledge, experience and qualifications will make you a great researcher at AIFS. You can also use the "Apply now" link below.
