Employment Opportunity!

Shared from the Facebook of Coll Thrush, one of the keynotes for NAVSA 2017:

“Please share widely: two three-year research positions in Indigenous Studies in the UK, part of a large project I’m involved in. You’d be working with some really great people.

TWO, THREE-YEAR RESEARCH ASSOCIATE POSTS in INDIGENOUS STUDIES. ONE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF KENT; ONE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF EAST ANGLIA
The TWO Research Associates will contribute to the AHRC funded research project, Beyond the Spectacle: Native North American Presence in Britain, starting September 1st, 2017 and ending August 31st, 2020. Working as part of a team of four, one will be based at Kent, under the supervision of Dr. David Stirrup (PI) and the other will be based at UEA, under the supervision of Prof. Jacqueline Fear-Segal (Co-I). Applicants should hold a PhD in Indigenous Studies (or equivalent), and have experience of archival research and conference presentation. Applicants wishing to be considered for both posts should submit applications to both institutions.

This project will explore, assess, and realign British understanding of Native North American Indigenous peoples in the twenty-first century, by examining complex processes of exchange and interchange through a cultural and historical lens. Successful applicants will locate primary sources, carry out research in libraries and archives, and also develop their own research project for conference presentations and publication.
