Applications are invited for a full time Graduate Research Assistant to join the team working on the AHRC funded project ‘Constructing Scientific Communities’ and the ERC funded project, ‘Diseases of Modern Life: Nineteenth-Century Perspectives’, under the direction of Professor Sally Shuttleworth.

The projects are interdisciplinary, bringing together scholars from the fields of literature and science, and the history of medicine, science and technology. The post holder will provide research support for the projects in a range of areas, including preparation of materials for publication and database entry, and public engagement activities. There is also the possibility of pursuing individual research in the area.

The AHRC funded project ‘Constructing Scientific Communities’ will run to 30 November 2018, and this will be the primary focus of work when the post holder takes up the role. The ERC funded project, ‘Diseases of Modern Life: Nineteenth-Century Perspectives’ will run until 31 July 2019 and therefore the final part of the time in the role will be focused on this project.

Further particulars (which all applicants must consult) are available here. (Accessible via Internet Explorer.)

Applications (which should include a CV and a supporting statement explaining your suitability for the post) must be made online via the link above by 12 noon on 13 September 2018. You will be asked to upload a CV, and supporting statement. Please ensure all documents are uploaded as PDF files.
