About Anglia Ruskin University 

Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) is a global university transforming lives through innovative, inclusive and entrepreneurial education and research. ARU holds a Gold award for the quality of its education, awarded through the Teaching Excellence Framework, and is the Times Higher Education University of the Year 2023. ARU’s research institutes and faculties bridge scientific, technical and creative fields. We deliver impactful research which tackles pressing issues and makes a real difference to our communities. Our academic excellence has been recognised by the UK’s Higher Education funding bodies, with 16 of our research areas assessed as world leading.  

About the role 

ARU is establishing a new Centre for Equalities in Uniformed Public Services, which will build on the work of our Veterans and Families Institute for Military Social Research (VFI) and the Policing Institute for the Eastern Region (PIER). The Centre is a £11.3m investment in uniformed public services research by UKRI and represents a substantial increase in ARU’s research capacity. Key objectives of the new Centre include producing excellent underpinning research into cultural transformation in uniformed public services, and adopting a strongly collaborative approach with local, regional and national uniformed public services organisations to tacking issues of equality, diversity and inclusion.  

We are now seeking to appoint a Professor to lead the new Centre alongside the Directors of VFI and PIER. The successful candidate will provide intellectual and strategic direction as well as overall management and oversight of the Centre’s people and their research. They will also develop and maintain partnerships with uniformed public services organisations across the region, embedding a collaborative ethos across the Centres’ activity, and implementing a research-to-policy-to-practice pipeline through close working relationships with partners. 

Our ideal candidate will have extensive experience of research leadership as a PI and research centre/institute lead. They will have a track record of income and outputs generation at the highest levels of public policy and/or uniformed public services research and will be able to draw upon a wide network of contacts and existing partnerships to drive forward the work of the new Centre. They will also bring experience of working directly with uniformed public services at a senior level.
