Do you have research experience in historical documents from the medieval period to the present and an interest in working in Staffordshire archives to develop materials for local volunteers? We are looking to appoint a part time Research Assistant to work in the Staffordshire Record Office based in Stafford, working alongside academic staff in the Institute for Name-Studies based in the School of English. You will have experience of working with documents from the medieval period and later, both in Latin and in English, and have experience of working in archives and record offices. Please note that this post will be based in the County Council run Staffordshire Record Office in Stafford.

You will have a degree (or equivalent) in History, English or another relevant area, have excellent oral and written communication skills and be competent with Microsoft Office applications including Word and Excel.

We recognise that what helps us succeed is the different ideas and experiences of colleagues across our School, who come from a mix of cultures and backgrounds. Together, we are welcoming, inspiring and supportive of everyone. We believe in diverse academic and research teams that will provide the best opportunities to be innovative and forward thinking. We are therefore seeking applications from candidates whose background, experience and identity broadens and enhances the diversity of our existing team and would particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic scholars. We are currently working to decolonise our teaching curriculum and understand that having a mix of opinions, broad perspectives, lived experiences and different ways of solving problems enhances our day-to-day work and enriches our academic community.

Mentoring towards further career progression will be offered throughout the period of the post.

We strongly endorse Athena SWAN principles, and we have commitment at all levels of our organisation to address gender inequality. It is our mission to ensure equal opportunities, best working practices and fair policies for all.

Further information about our School, the Institute for Name-Studies and working here.

You would join us on a fixed-term contract for 4 hours per week from 1st August 2024 to 31st December 2025. Requests for secondment from internal candidates may be considered on the basis that prior agreement has been sought from both your current line manager and the manager of your substantive post, if you are already undertaking a secondment role.

If you have any informal enquiries, Professor Jayne Carroll will be happy to discuss these with you: jayne.carroll@nottingham.ac.uk
