They will also represent the archiving and research group at external meetings/seminars, either with other members of the group or alone, and manage their own research and administrative activities.

The successful candidates will hold or be near to completing a PhD, together with relevant experience. They will possess sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline to work within established archiving and research programmes, with the ability to use advanced programming functions in at least one of SPSS, R, STATA or SAS.
