APSA Research Assistance Program

APSA Research Assistance Program

As a part of APSA’s commitment to help, support and assist junior academics, we are offering a Research Assistance Program for members who are undertaking or have completed a PhD within the last 5 years. Any PhD candidate or Early Career Researcher (ECR) who is currently an APSA member is eligible to participate.


The program aims to widen the networks of APSA PhDs and ECRs beyond their own institutions and improve their chances of gaining research experience. To do so, APSA will maintain a register of its PhD and ECR members who are available and interested in research assistance jobs. The register is accessible only by APSA members, who can consult the database and hire a PhD candidate according to their needs.


Any PhD or ECR member interested in being included in our Research Assistant Database should contact the Postgraduate Representative Sofia Ammassari and provide the following details:

  • Name
  • University
  • Contact details
  • Research interests (max 4)
  • General research skills
  • IT skills
  • Language skills

Any APSA member interested in hiring a PhD candidate or ECR should contact directly the person in question and arrange with them the conditions of employment.
