Linked justice and education data research fellowship

Apply for funding to conduct research and analysis through Administrative Data Research (ADR) UK. Your project will show how Ministry of Justice (MoJ) justice data and Department for Education (DfE) educational data could have an impact on policy.

The research should include:

  • data discovery and cleaning
  • policy and public engagement
  • output production.

You must be an individual researcher from an eligible UKRI research organisation.

We are looking for demonstrable experience of working with large datasets coupled with a willingness to engage with other researchers across the ADR UK partnership as well as policy makers. Experience of MoJ or DfE data is not essential.

Applications will be assessed based on their scientific merit and potential for policy impact as well as their ability to deliver within the timeframe. Data owner approvals are essential and will be coordinated by ADR UK as part of the decision-making process.

Applications can be for either part-time or full-time research fellows, but the recommended minimum is 60% full time equivalent. Proposals may also include:

  • salaries plus nominated research support staff or mentorship time (mentorship is a requirement for applications from early career researchers)
  • travel and subsistence
  • project-specific engagement or events
  • public engagement
  • production of outputs
  • training.

Joint or team applications are not eligible for this scheme, though letters to support the research from other academic or non-academic organisations are encouraged.
