Following the success of last year’s Screen Archives Residency, University of the Arts London is pleased to announce a new residency opportunity. The Researcher in the Archives Residency is an opportunity for a post-doctoral researcher from the wider UK university community to be in residence at the University Archives and Special Collections Centre (ASCC) over a nine-month period. The selected researcher will receive a total sum of £8,000 and will be supported in their use of the archives in the University Archives and Special Collections Centre, Elephant and Castle.
Proposals are invited from post-doctoral researchers to produce new research outputs in any medium or practice, including digital, inspired by the archives held in the ASCC. It is anticipated that the Resident will research for up to six months, and create their research outputs during the last three months.
The deadline for submission of proposals is 9am on Tuesday 8th May 2018.
