NCRM Placement Fellowship at the British Library

British Library research

The British Library is working in partnership with the National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM) to offer a Placement Fellowship which will highlight the challenges and best practice in documenting web archive collections.

Published date:

The Fellow will work closely with the Web Archive Engagement and Liaison Manager at the British Library to produce an innovative piece of research.

This is a unique opportunity for a social science researcher to use their knowledge and expertise in the use of the internet and/or web archives as research sources, to work in partnership with the British Library and the UK Web Archive.

The Fellowship will be based at the British Library, either part-time or full-time, and will develop and lead a case study to understand what researchers need to know about web archive collections, demonstrating methodological challenges and creating innovative solutions to support future research.
