Role  

Embark on a transformative 9-month journey as a Research Fellow in Cultural Heritage at De Montfort University, delving into the project "Cultural Heritage in The Occupied Territories as a Means to Peace." Under the guidance of Dr. Giuliana Tiripelli and Dr. Rami Isaac, this fellowship, part of the British Council's International Heritage Protection and Sustainable Development Research Scheme, seeks to explore the potential of Palestinian heritage and tourism in promoting peace through media during conflict.  

Your responsibilities, based in England, involve comprehensive research activities. Dive into literature, explore institutional data, and conduct virtual interviews to understand the impact of heritage projects on international tourism and community engagement amid evolving war dynamics. Your outputs, including a main report on evolving tourism and heritage needs and a Media report guiding the presentation of Palestinian heritage, will contribute to shaping the discourse around international heritage protection.  

This is a unique opportunity to make a lasting impact on heritage preservation and tourism promotion in conflict zones. Apply now to be a key player in this transformative research initiative.  

Ideal Candidate 

We seek a passionate and driven individual committed to making a lasting impact through research in cultural heritage. The ideal candidate holds a strong academic background, demonstrating expertise in Constructive Journalism, Tourism Studies, or related fields. Your ability to navigate complex research landscapes and collaborate effectively will be crucial in this role. 

Engage with dedication and enthusiasm, showcasing a keen interest in the intersection of heritage, tourism, and media in conflict contexts. Strong analytical skills, a flair for written communication, and an understanding of the socio-cultural nuances in the Israeli/Palestinian context are essential. As the project unfolds, your adaptability and commitment to ethical research practices will be invaluable.  

This is a unique opportunity to contribute to meaningful change through heritage preservation and tourism promotion in the midst of conflict. Apply now for a chance to be the catalyst for positive transformation in international heritage protection. 

The project needs to be completed by December 2024, and it is expected that the researcher will start as soon as possible after the interview, once VISA is obtained.
