Academic research project on perceptions and experiences of casualised academic staff- participants sought

19 September 2017

We are conducting a qualitative research project on the perceptions and experiences of casualised academic staff as to the effects of casualisation on the teaching and learning of undergraduate students.

As part of this we would like to conduct email interviews with UK-based academics who are on fixed term, zero-hours or similar form of insecure academic contract. The focus of the interviews will be on academics’ perceptions and experiences of the impact of their contractual status on the teaching and learning of undergraduate students.

If you are interested in participating, please reply to this email and we will send you more information about the project.
