Are you an academic on an insecure contract?

Call for participation

A new research project is investigating the perceptions and experiences of casualised academic staff as to the effects of casualisation on the teaching and learning of undergraduate students. The study will take the form of email interviews with UK-based academics from a range of disciplines who are on fixed term, zero-hours or similar forms of insecure academic contract. So if this applies to you and you are interested in participating or learning more about what that would involve, please email the researchers: Dr Barbara Read (University of Glasgow) barbara.read@glasgow.ac.uk and Professor Carole Leathwood (London Metropolitan University) c.leathwood@londonmet.ac.uk. More information is available at:

The study has received research ethics approval from the University of Glasgow. All participants and their department/university will be anonymised and confidentiality will be protected.
