Vacancy: Researcher

Join us to produce critical research, policy analysis and investigative journalism to inform debates, movements and campaigns on civil liberties, human rights and democratic standards.

Statewatch is recruiting a researcher on an initial four-month contract with a possibility for extension, dependent on funding.


The researcher will initially primarily be responsible for working on two projects that will be completed at the end of 2022, which will require the completion of investigations into the use of personal data by EU policing and migration agencies, and the externalisation of immigration control to non-EU states (further details in the Job Description). The successful candidate will also contribute to implementation of other objectives outlined in our strategic plan. An extension to the contract beyond the initial four-month term will be possible, depending on the acquisition of sufficient funding and satisfactory performance in the role.

Please note that interviews will take place on Wednesday 24 August.
