A key role for the post holder will be to lead the design and analysis of participatory workshops, producer and stakeholder interviews and focus groups in UK and at EU level, and to make a substantive contribution to critical analysis and evaluation of overall project findings. Capacity to participate in and contribute to quantitative research is also highly desirable.
