Become involved in social science research

Scotland’s Administrative Data Research Centre is looking for volunteers to join their Public Panel. If you are interested in social science research and in helping the Edinburgh University-based team develop research projects of public benefit, do get in touch with us.

Role of the panel
The Public Panel will put the views of the public at the forefront of our activities and be involved in shaping our approach and how we communicate and engage with the public.

Your role
The Administrative Data Research Centre Scotland does not expect you to have specialist knowledge of academic research or the use of data. We will provide you with mentoring and training to help you understand the Centre and the research it does. You should be enthusiastic about getting the interests of the public properly considered in the work we do. Meetings (half day) will be held every quarter.

Travel expenses will be paid, as well as a small honorarium for your time.

Further information and to apply
Please contact Carol Porteous carol.porteous@ed.ac.uk, or 0131 658 5347.
