Rose is currently Principal Investigator on an ESRC/TSRC funded longitudinal, mixed-methods project which investigates individual attitudes towards volunteering, and the role of the state in responding to social need, through 1981-2012. The project draws on individual writing from the Mass Observation Archive, in dialogue with data from the British Household Panel Survey/Understanding Society, and cross-sectional data from the General Lifestyle Survey and the British Social Attitudes Survey.
Other current projects include: Mass Observers views on the Big Society and the capacity of individuals and communities to respond to the localism agenda; and the distribution and flow of charitable resources into and out of communities with contrasting socio-economic backgrounds.

Rose joined the Third Sector Research Centre at Southampton University in October 2011. Prior to this she worked with John Mohan for the Centre for Charitable Giving and Philanthropy at the University of Southampton, on a project investigating the distribution and flow of charitable resources into and out of communities with contrasting socio-economic backgrounds.
Before working on research relating to the voluntary sector at the University of Southampton she led research projects at the Universities of Bristol, Reading, Winchester and Southampton working across the different disciplines of law, sociology, social policy, education and history. She has also worked as a freelance Research Associate for the Policy Studies Institute at the University of Westminster, and as a freelance researcher, undertaking consultancies and evaluations for voluntary organisations. Rose took four years out of academia in 2005-2009 to work as the CEO of a domestic violence charity.
MA in Women’s Studies (with distinction) in 1995 from the School of Culture and Communication at the University of Sussex, and an
ESRC funded PhD from the Department of Sociology and Social Policy from the University of Southampton in 2000. The PhD was entitled ‘Nationalism and gender: a study of war-related violence against women’. It explored the relationships between nationalism, gender and violence against women, and the project researched the roles and experiences of Former Yugoslavian NGOs supporting survivors of gendered war-related violence during and after the recent wars.
