Postdoctoral Early Career Researcher (ERC)

Goldsmiths, University of London - Department of Anthropology

We are seeking an intellectually creative and highly motivated researcher to work as a Postdoctoral Early Career Researcher (ECR) and play a key part in the GlobalGRACE (Global Gender and Cultures of Equality) Project. Funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund of RCUK, GlobalGRACE seeks to bring together institutional research, artistic interventions, curatorial research practice and public exhibitions to investigate and enable gender positive approaches to wellbeing internationally.

The ECR will work within Work Package 6 of the project, Space Invading, Curatorial Practice and the Making of a Global Museum of Equalities, alongside Dr Mark Johnson (Anthropology) and Dr Nirmal Puwar (Sociology) and the wider project team. The researcher will explore the changing nature of gender and intersectional differences in postcolonial contexts. Working ethnographically the ECR will research museum practice and institutional cultures in the UK and South Africa and will also lead in the project-wide curation of a Global Museum of Equalities.

The key requirements of the post are the capacity and creativity to ethically plan and deliver an intersectionally-orientated participatory research project which will generate significant academic outputs and opportunities to disseminate the findings to wider publics. This will then combine with a professional standard curatorial practice, leading to a highly impactful Global Museum of Equalities.
