The School of Modern Languages seeks suitably qualified applicants with experience in artistic research and/or community engagement for the position of a part-time (0.5 FTE) Research Fellow (Creative Industries in the UK and Ukraine) to support the AHRC-funded project “Donbas in Focus: Visions of Industry in the Ukrainian East.”

The successful applicant will support the project by: (i) co-organizing three community workshops at post-industrial heritage sites in Wales, England, and Scotland; (ii) curating and installing an exhibition of photography and artwork on post-industrial themes at various locations across the UK and Ukraine; (iii) co-editing and contributing a chapter to the critical-creative volume emerging from the industrial archives workshop series; (iv) supporting the PI with project website and social media management. There will also be an opportunity to participate in the activities of the Centre for Russian, Soviet, Central and East European Studies supporting the Director and – for an appropriately qualified candidate – managing the programme of events associated with that research centre.

Applicants must hold a doctoral degree or equivalent (e.g. experience for art practitioners) in the Creative Industries with an interest in participatory art practice and community engagement. Experience of exhibition curation and installation will be an advantage, as will website development skills. Work can be carried out remotely, in which case travel for project planning and attendance at all project events in different locations in the UK will be provided by the project.

Informal enquiries can be directed to Dr Victoria Donovan, Senior Lecturer in Russian – email
