Archivists! Would you like to join our small and enthusiastic team? You would be cataloguing the papers of this chap (Dr Calvin Wells), who pioneered palaeopathology (discovering ancient disease and injury from skeletal remains).

We’re recruiting an Archivist to work on the Putting Flesh on the Bones Project, funded by a grant from the Wellcome Trust and involving work with both Special Collections and Archaeological Sciences. The post is available for 18 months from 1 June 2017 and offers a fantastic chance to collaborate with academics and conservation/museum professionals, as well as Special Collections staff and readers. Find out more on the University’s vacancy webpage. Do contact me (Alison) if you have any queries.
We’re advertising for a new colleague to join the Special Collections team: an Archivist to catalogue the Mitrinovic/New Atlantis Archive.

The Archive tells the story of an extraordinary man whose life and ideas are intertwined with so many others in early 20th century art, literature, politics and culture. It shows how he built a circle of followers who shared his aspirations towards a better and peaceful Europe. We are thrilled that we will soon be able to make this important collection publicly available.
The post is part time, pro rata, for 16 months, and the key dates are 12 May (closing date) and 3 June for interviews. Note that the post requires a qualified professional archivist with relevant skills and experience. I welcome informal enquiries about the post by email.
