The New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse (NZFVC) is the national centre for collating and disseminating information about domestic, family & whanau violence in Aotearoa New Zealand. We provide information and resources for people working towards the elimination of family/whanau violence. The NZFVC specialises in New Zealand research and information with some international material also being included.

This programme is managed by Auckland UniServices Limited, the commercial research, knowledge transfer and custom education company for the University of Auckland - dedicated to connecting the University’s capabilities to business and investors, Government and the community. UniServices is a wholly-owned company of the University of Auckland.

In just 25 years, UniServices has grown to produce an income of over NZ $130million per annum, far surpassing any similar organisation in New Zealand and Australia. Our income derives from contract research and consulting, customised education programmes for 25,000 students around the world and from transferring intellectual property developed by staff and students at the University to the public and private sectors.

This role provides an opportunity to support development of the NZFVC research platform, in conjunction with the Co-Directors of the project.

Key activities of this role include:

  • Supporting the Co-Directors to meet current research objectives and to develop an ongoing programme of research.

    • Research Study design
    • Preparation of Research Grant and Ethics Applications
    • Data Collection & Data management
    • Data analysis (qualitative & quantitative)
    • Writing of research reports, issues papers, and journal articles as required. 

An excellent written and verbal communicator, you will possess advanced quantitative and qualitative research skills. You will have a higher degree (preferably a PhD) in Health, Education, Psychology, Social Science, or other related field. You will be familiar with the Microsoft Office suite and have proficiency in the use of statistical packages and understanding of statistical methods. You will have excellent scientific writing skills and bring a desire to develop expertise in New Zealand family violence research and analysis.

This is a fixed term position for 20 hours per week for 18 months.

If you truly have a desire to make a difference in the lives of families in New Zealand and have fantastic research skills, then we would like to hear from you!
