A Yorkshire university is looking to recruit a 'research officer' to visit some of Britain's most popular stag party venues.
The School of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Leeds is hoping to recruit a skilled academic who will be tasked with assessing how erotic dancing establishments have become mainstream entertainment over the past few years.
In particular, the new position will entail visiting dancing venues across the north of the UK, including those frequented by stag dos to Newcastle and Edinburgh, and interviewing the dancers themselves, as well as the clubs' managers and the industry regulators.
However, the university has insisted that the £31,500-a-year post will be far more than simply a 12-month-long stag weekend.
"It is academically rigorous, high quality research into an area of legitimate public interest and concern. The research is externally funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC)," a spokesperson told the Yorkshire Post.
Newcastle stag weekends are among the most popular in the UK, with its Bigg Market home to some of the country's top nightclubs and bars.
