Experience Graduate degree OR equivalent experience with a minimum of 1-year using Excel for both data capture and financial bookkeeping purposes.
Start Date 22nd August 2022

Reporting to Cara Middle-East Adviser
Application Deadline: Sunday 14/08/2022
The Council for At-Risk Academics is a UK-registered charity founded in 1933 under the leadership of William Beveridge, to rescue academics suffering persecution under the rise of Nazism and facilitate their continued work in safety. Sixteen Cara Fellows from the 1930s and 1940s became Nobel Laureates, and many more innovators in their fields, including, Nikolaus Pevsner, Lise Meitner and Karl Popper. A number of Cara’s founders and Council members also personally provided places and/or funds to help individual academics; and Cara, known in the 1930s as the AAC, later the SPSL, was closely involved in the successful effort in 1933 to bring to London the Warburg Institute art library, which had been prohibited by the Nazis, and six of its staff.
Cara has been a lifeline to academics at risk for almost 90 years, as and when world events have placed them in the line of fire: Hungarian Uprising, Cold War, Apartheid South Africa, Iran, Latin American Juntas, Vietnam, Kosovo, DRC, Rwanda, Sudan, Zimbabwe etc. and, more recently Iraq, Yemen, Iran and Syria. Cara support is typically framed as temporary sanctuary offered at times of heightened risk.
Cara Objectives ‘To assist academics who have been, or are, or are at risk of being, subject to discrimination, persecution, suffering or violence on account of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion, to relieve needs among them and their dependants and ensure that their specialist knowledge and abilities can continue to be used for the benefit of the public.’
‘To advance education by supporting academics and their educational institutions in countries where their continuing work is at risk or compromised, to ensure that such academics and institutions can continue to fulfil their critical role as educators for the public benefit.’
Cara Syria Programme in Region
Launched in June 2016, the Cara Syria Programme in Region is now in its sixth year, working predominantly with Syrian academics in exile in Turkey where the greatest number have sought refuge. Cara has over 500 Syrian academics registered on the Syria Programme database, of which over 200 who are actively engaged in one of more of the Syria Programme strands (activities).
Syria Programme Aim ‘To nurture and enable future opportunities for Syrian academics by facilitating professional connection and collaboration and continued academic development and contribution whilst in exile, as a group that is vital to the future of Syria.’
The Syria Programme combines five strands (activities)
- Strand 1: English for Academic Purposes (EAP) is a blended-learning activity that combines weekly one-to-one EAP sessions, group speaking practice sessions, and group English Language sessions - all online, with approximately 9-monthly British Council online APTIS testing as an objective measure of progress across the 6 EAP levels, complemented by EAP tutor assessments. There are currently 107 Syrian EAP participants and 97 university EAP experts all supporting the programme on a voluntary basis. The EAP Steering Group meets weekly to discuss issues arising and developments. The EAP strand includes probono access to both in-sessional online and face-to-face pre-sessional university courses, which require negotiation with the universities and logistics, e.g. visa, flights, local travel and coordination with the receiving university.
- Strand 2: Academic Development (ASD), another blended-learning activity, combining weekly online E-learn sessions with workshops in Istanbul. A more comprehensive online Foundation course was piloted in September 2020 and is mandatory for all new SP applicants and any SP participants planning to apply for an SP research grant.
- Strand 3: Research Incubation Visits (RIVs) 4- to 8-week visits by Syrian participants to discipline-relevant UK university departments to allow networking, training and the development of a collaborative research project with host academics, as well as offering longer-term institutional affiliation and continued access to host university online resources post return to country of exile. RIV visits were put on hold between February and September 2020 but have now resumed.
- Strand 4: Syria Research Fellowship Scheme (SRFS) provides funding to support research on Syria or Syrian populations in exile, with grants of up to £8K. This part of the programme draws on Cara’s partnership model, whereby project teams are partnered with, usually, UK-based mentors who assist from the outset in the development of proposals through to publication of research outputs. Implementation is led by the Syrian team members. Teams are encouraged where possible to include academic colleagues from the host country – e.g. Turkey. The role of mentors is to ensure that the research aligns with international standards and good practice in research and will deliver rigorous quality and, ideally, publishable outputs.
- Strand 5: Arts & Humanities (A&H) Combines all existing Syria Programme activities but is dedicated to Syrian colleagues in exile whose disciplines sit within the arts and humanities, or humanistic social sciences.
- Online elements of the Programme are supported by a dedicated closed website, elements of which will go public in the latter part of 2022.
The Syria Programme relies extensively on voluntary support, with over 400 discipline and EAP experts committed to supporting it, delivering weekly online one-to-one EAP sessions, the weekly online e-Learn Soiree series, and supporting research. Since March 2022 and removal of pandemic-related travel constraints, the SP Istanbul workshops have resumed, focused on supporting academic writing amongst successful grant recipient teams, and exploring the SP’s role in supporting/facilitating the quality of HE-provision in the non-regime NW of Syria.
Governance The development and implementation of strands 1 and 2 are overseen by their respective Steering Groups comprising experts from the universities of Cardiff, Edinburgh, Bristol, Kent, Leeds, Middlesex, Oxford, Queen Mary’s, Reading, Sheffield and USW, again all working on a voluntary basis. The overall Syria Programme is overseen by the Cara Syria Programme Steering Committee comprising the Cara Chair, Honorary Secretary and a Cara Trustee/Board member.
Syria Programme (SP) Staffing The Cara Regional Syria Programme is currently recruiting a new EAP Programme Officer, to work alongside the ASD Programme Officer, the Research Programme Officer and the SP Administrator who establishes the eligibility new SP applicants and runs the RIV. All Programme Officers have primary responsibility for their own areas of administration.
