This post-doctoral research fellowship is part of the AHRC funded project Writers in British Intelligence: The Secret State and the Public Sphere. Working with Dr Jago Morrison (Brunel) and Dr Huw Dylan (KCL) a key focus of the work is on spy fiction in the early 1960s and the work of John le Carrè. The candidate will be responsible for carrying out primary research in several specified archives and will need to show previous experience in archival research. The candidate will work collaboratively with the other members of the research team to produce academic outputs of the highest quality, including an edited collection. A track record of successful publication is therefore required.

The candidate will also be expected to communicate research findings to a wider audience by publishing several shorter pieces aimed at the general reader, including on the project blog. A key public-facing output of the project is an online exhibition on the Google Arts & Culture platform focussing on the role of writers in creating the ‘Bodyguard’ deception campaign in WW2. Part of this role is to assist in collecting, curating and uploading material for this exhibition. Therefore, the candidate will need to have a reasonable level of proficiency in the use of spreadsheets and databases. The candidate will also assist in the planning and management of a public author event and an academic symposium.

The role will provide excellent experience and career development for a colleague at post-doctoral level with an interest in spy fiction and the history of intelligence.

Closing date for applications: Sunday 30 January 2022 (Midnight).
