Two paid roles in the Arts & Humanities Research Institute now available for postgraduate research students
The Arts and Humanities Research Institute (AHRI) is currently offering two roles in the Institute and the Camões Centre for Portuguese Language and Culture for PhD students from the Faculty of Arts & Humanities.
The AHRI addresses the challenges of 21st century civic society and culture through support for interdisciplinary and socially engaged research and education with non-academic partners.
We support 13 interdisciplinary research centres, each running a series of engagement activities, alongside research, publications and research-led teaching. Through the REACH Space, REACH XR and REACH-Out we share, mobilise, develop and reflect on experimental and creative research, research-led teaching and engagement activities.

The assistant’s contribution will be crucial to raising the profile of the Institute and research centres’ engaged research and education work, both internally and externally. The role holder will work closely with the Institute team, Research Centre Administrators and will occasionally work with Faculty and King’s Communications teams.
The role will be for 2 - 2.5 days (14 - 17.5 hours) per week, for 6 months, starting on Monday 1st February. The role will be paid at £13.82 per hour.
