An opportunity has arisen for a postdoctoral fellow to join an international team of researchers based in Cambridge and Israel whose work addresses the factors affecting the ability and willingness of young victims, witness, and offenders to describe experiences of child abuse. The Research Associate will take part in research concerned with the role of supportive interview practices in affecting the willingness of reluctant children and adolescents to describe their experiences in detail to forensic investigators. The interviews will be conducted by trained investigators in Israel, and the Research Associate will be based in Cambridge, responsible for coordination of the study, data management and analysis, and report preparation. The study is supported by the Jacobs Foundation and the Nuffield Foundation. Applicants should have prior research experience studying both forensic interviews and child/adolescent witnesses.
