Brendan Churchill is a Research Fellow in Sociology in the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Melbourne. Prior to joining Melbourne, he was a Research Fellow at the Institute of Social Change and Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Tasmania.

Brendan is sociologist researching in the ares of work and employment, family, youth and gender.

His primary research program focuses on work and employment from a number of different perspective: young people, women and families and the future of work, including the gig economy. He has been researching and writing about issues to do with youth (un)employment in Australia and the on-going impact of economic and technological disruption on their futures for over a decade. He is also working with Professor Lyn Craig on a number of projects which examine the impact of work on family life for both men and in particular women. With Professor Craig and Dr Signe Ravn, he holds an Australian Research Council Linkage Project (LP190100623) 'Managing at the Margins: Women Making it Work in Precarious Times' (2020-22). He is one of few researchers in Australia examining the gig economy and gig workers using quantitative methods.

Brendan is a quantitative research with expertise in quantitative social research design and analysis, including longitudinal data analysis and multi-level modelling. He has designed a number of surveys, including the Scrolling Beyond Binaries (2016, 2020), Making it Work in the Gig Economy (2018, 2020) and the Work and Care in the Time of COVID-19 survey (2020).

Brendan is currently on the Associate Board of Work, Employment and Society and an Associate Editor of Health Sociology of Review.
