LSSI Postgraduate Researcher – Placement Opportunity

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Postgraduate Researcher to work on a project with video production company INC360.

INC360 is a Community Interest Company in the early stages of developing a service for children and young people experiencing loneliness. Many children and young people find themselves isolated due to situations out of their control and miss out on opportunities their peers are enjoying. Whether this is due to having a long term illness, being a young carer or suffering from social anxiety, we want to enable them to participate in community-based activities and events by bringing the outside world in using 360-degree video watched on VR headsets. Our saying is that ‘Everyone has the right to feel included’. The objective of this research placement is to help understand the prevalence of loneliness amongst children and young people and any lasting effects on their mental health. Please see the full details below. 

This placement is part time with a minimum of 4 hours a week but this can be flexible. The start date is asap until April 2021, the total placement hours are 130. A bursary of £1950 will be provided to cover the PGR’s time on the project.

If you are interested in applying, please send your CV, a one page Cover Letter detailing your experience and how you meet the required skills and an email confirmation from your supervisor that they are happy for you to undertake a placement to h.e.crow@leeds.ac.uk by Monday 23rd November at 12 noon.
