The National Cataloguing Unit for the Archives of Contemporary Scientists (NCUACS)

The NCUACS wishes to appoint a person to work on a three year AHRC-funded resource enhancement project to catalogue and provide electronic access to archives in the physical and mathematical sciences. This project is a major initiative to preserve and make accessible the archives of key twentieth-century scientists in such areas as atomic physics, magnetic resonance imaging, radio astronomy and ultra-low temperatures. It will illuminate their wider public roles in respect of war, industry, environment and government and the contributions of refugee and women scientists.
