Applications are invited for the above Research Associate/Fellow post based at the University of Nottingham working with Dr Joanne Cormac on her project ‘The Symphony: Transnationalism, Networks, and Cultural Exchange, 1800-1914’. The successful candidate will work with Dr Cormac to examine the transnational networks through which symphonies travelled across Europe and North America during the 19th century. The project examines the way travel, transnational exchange, and dissemination through networks, shaped the development of the symphony in ways not previously understood. It also uses digital technology to express and interpret these transnational journeys and relationships. The role-holder will focus particularly on French networks. 

Duties will include analysing secondary literature, using newspaper and periodical databases, data entry, and translation. The role-holder will also help to build relationships with internal and external stakeholders. Travel in the UK and France may be required (travel bursary included).

Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent in a relevant subject area OR be near to completion of a PhD (title will be 'Research Associate' where an appointment is made before PhD is completed). It is essential that candidates are able to read and translate written French to a fluent level (CEFR C1-2). Experience of working in the digital humanities is desirable.  

This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for a period of 6 months. Hours of work are part-time (0.6 FTE).
