Internship Opportunity

Do you fancy developing your research and networking skills whilst gaining object handling skills and an insight into GSA Archives and Collections?

A fantastic opportunity has come up to work with us as a research intern in partnership with Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities. The successful candidate will use material from GSA Archives and Collections to identify and undertake research into a particular area. There will also be opportunities to disseminate your research by creating content for our website, blog and social media channels, as well as through other channels of distribution where appropriate.

We have identified several research projects that tie in with GSA’s strategic research themes of; History, Heritage, Archives and Collections, Sustainable Environment and Economies, Cultural Landscape and Identity and Health and Care. Click here to find out more information about the projects we’ve identified.

The project planned will last 3 months and will ideally be 1-3 days work per week. The majority of work will take place at The Whisky Bond so that the intern can access the Archives and Collections, however they may also undertake some of the work from home if and when appropriate.

For more information and how to apply, please see the Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities website here. The application deadline is Monday 14th November 2022.
