We’re looking for someone to help us get the project launched next year!
Based in the Humanities Research Institute, you will develop and implement plans to generate publicity for the project web resource and its research findings following the release of the completed website in spring 2017, and maximise the non-academic impact of the project. Working with University media and public engagement officers and the project team, you will develop a media plan for the launch of the website, and seek publicity for the web resource through articles in the popular press, radio and/or TV programmes, and social media. In addition, you will develop and implement specific plans for encouraging family historians, schools, archives and museums, and prisoners to engage with the resource, and for disseminating research findings and their policy implications to appropriate external agencies.
It’s a part-time (55%-ish FTE) post based in Sheffield, from January to end of September 2017.
Deadline: 15th November 2016
