Now recruiting!

We are currently looking to recruit another Research Assistant to work on this IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Health)-funded research project investigating the public legitimacy of health and safety regulation since 1960. This is a one-year, full-time post (commencing January 2014) involving researching a range of primary and secondary sources relating to occupational safety and health in post-1960 Britain, with a focus on changing notions of legitimacy, particularly in relation to the role of the state. This should be a really interesting and exciting project to be involved with, so if this appeals to you, please do get in touch!

The post will be based in the School of Social, Historical and Literary Studies at the University of Portsmouth, working alongside Dr Mike Esbester and Professor Paul Almond of the University of Reading.Further details are available at and at
