In delivering ‘social science that makes a difference’ the Research Divisions, Units, Institutes and Centres of the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) undertake policy-oriented research from its offices in Pretoria, Cape Town, Durban, and Pietermaritzburg. Our public purpose mandate is set out in the Human Sciences Research Council Act of 2008.

The Equitable Education and Economies (EEE) division undertakes research to transform educational outcomes and increase economic participation. It recognises that education and the economy have long been linked, and conducts research to understand educational performance and improve learning outcomes, and to interrogate social, spatial and structural obstacles to economic participation.

EEE is looking to appoint an experienced, high functioning Project Manager at the rank of Chief Researcher/Research Specialist for a period of 5 years to be based in Cape Town or Durban, commencing 1 April 2024. The project for which this appointment is to be made is called u’GOOD, and aims to test and further develop relational approaches to wellbeing; and generate empirical insights into key contemporary challenges to young people’s wellbeing, and how they are addressing these. The programme is structured into four thematic areas that act as entry points for investigations on the wellbeing of Young People: Livelihoods, Climate change, Digitalisation and Mental health.
