The Division of Languages and Intercultural Studies is seeking to appoint a fixed-term (18-months full time) Research Associate to work on the project ‘Translation, interpreting and the British humanitarian response to asylum seeker and refugee arrivals since the 1940s’, which explores the strategic importance of translation and interpreting in the early reception and resettlement phases of selected groups of asylum seekers and refugees in England since the 1940s, with specific reference to non-state actors. Duties include data collection (based on archival research and oral histories) and analysis, managing the project’s online presence, actively contributing to networking with project collaborators, communicating the project’s outputs, and preparing a single-authored written output. Applicants must have completed a PhD in a relevant subject area (e.g. migration studies), and demonstrate experience of archival research and interest in cross-disciplinary research.
