Apply for funding to analyse the new probation and criminal justice system linked dataset.

You will help improve understanding of the criminal justice system.

You must:

  • have demonstrable experience of working with large datasets
  • be based at a UK research organisation eligible for ESRC funding.

You should be willing to engage with other researchers across the Administrative Data Research UK (ADR UK) partnership, as well as policymakers.

The full economic cost of your project can be up to £130,000. ADR UK will fund 80% of the full economic cost.

Your project can last up to 12 months.


We welcome proposals from individual researchers from eligible research organisations, in line with ESRC’s standard eligibility criteria. See the ESRC research funding guide for further details.

Early career researchers may apply, but they must have a mentor.

Researchers on fixed term contracts are eligible to apply if their institutions are willing to extend their contracts to cover the period of the fellowship.

Joint applications are not permitted for this funding opportunity. However, applications can still include mentorship and research assistance where necessary. The fellow should be the one mainly using and leading on the analysis of the dataset or datasets.

We also welcome letters of support from other organisations, both academic and non-academic, as we are keen to ensure that research is relevant and well-received.cri
