Part-time Postdoctoral Research Assistant - Languages in the Creative Economy: Contemporary Russian Drama

Applications for this vacancy closed on 15 May 2017 at 12:00PM
The AHRC-funded Creative Multilingualism programme is conducting research on
the interaction between multilingualism and creativity, and rethinking the
identity of Modern Languages. We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work
on ‘Languages in the Creative Economy’, one of the programme’s seven research
strands.



As a global phenomenon, the creative industries (contributing 6% of UK GDP)
transcend national and linguistic borders through a dynamic interface between
the Anglophone world and other cultures. The focus of this strand is on how
the possibilities and processes of academic interventions, together with
collaborations with theatre professionals, give British audiences access to
works that were originally created in another language, whether performed in
their original language or in English, or produced as bilingual artefacts.



You will contribute to the design and execution of a research project run by
Professor Julie Curtis on 21st-century Russian drama, in particular supporting
knowledge exchange work to bring contemporary Russian plays to British
theatres. You will help to organise academic/theatre workshops, identify
innovative ways to present research results, represent the strand at external
meetings, and facilitate collaboration within both the strand and the broader
Creative Multilingualism programme. The role will involve some travel to
Russia.



You will have a good first degree and a doctorate in a relevant subject, along
with excellent written and spoken English and Russian, and experience of
supporting the staging of Russian drama in Britain. In addition, you will have
excellent organisational, bibliographic, and general research skills, and the
ability to engage and enthuse others, especially young people. Ideally, you
will have skills in website management and social media.



This is a part-time (0.25 FTE), fixed-term post until 30 June 2020, starting
on 1 July 2017 (or by negotiation).



Applications should be made online, and you will be required to upload a CV, a
supporting statement and the names and addresses of two referees as part of
your online application.



The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 15 May 2017.
