The Research Associate will be expected to undertake the research project as described in the Wellcome Trust funded research grant proposal ‘Renaissance Skin’, led by Professor Evelyn Welch (PI). This is a five year Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator Award studying the wide range of ways in which skin, both animal and human, was conceptualised and used in Europe between 1450 and 1700, a period of enormous change in terms of global contacts and connections and scientific innovation.
The project is European-wide and to assist Professor Welch in her work, the Research Associate will add linguistic competencies in languages apart from French and Italian which would be of particular benefit to the Renaissance Skin objectives.

They will be expected to undertake approximately three research trips per year (within Europe), and undertake any other reasonable duties associated with the project as required by the PI, or within the Department as required by the Head of Department. There will be opportunities to contribute to teaching, particularly at advanced undergraduate level.
The salary will be paid at Grade 6, £34,189 per annum, plus £3,500 per annum London Allowance.
This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 18 months.
