Early career fellowships in cultural and heritage institutions

The overall purpose of this funding opportunity is to enable early career post-doctoral (or equivalent) researchers to gain research and career experience in the galleries, libraries, archives, and museums (GLAM) sector.

You must do this through working in a major cultural or heritage host organisation, on a co-designed research project that will also benefit the host organisation.

Examples of broad research themes that would contribute to AHRC’s vision include:

  • diversifying histories and narratives, uncovering underexplored collections and opening up opportunities for more inclusive engagement with heritage
  • realising the cultural capital of under-studied collections and other cultural assets
  • contextualising collections and heritages and exploring how they can inform better understanding of ourselves
  • advancing how we conserve and curate our cultural infrastructure to serve the needs of future generations, including innovative applications of digital technologies, data, design thinking or creative methods
  • developing innovative ways for cultural assets to:
    • provide support for diverse, inclusive, healthy, sustainable and prosperous places and communities
    • foster constructive civic discourse
    • help address wider societal challengers

Closing date: 30 March 2023 4:00pm UK time
