New Researcher in Residence – Connecting Scotland’s Sounds

November 18, 2016 in All Opportunities, Composers, electroacoustic, Opportunity by mwhiteside

The Connecting Scotland’s Sounds project is piloting a Researcher in Residence pilot programme in partnership with the Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities (SGSAH):

Hear Here: listening in to the sound collections of Scotland’s community archives

Do you have recordings in your community archive that you’d like shared? There’s a new opportunity to work with a SGSAH doctoral researcher in late spring/summer 2017. The researcher would be able to offer part-time assistance with archival tasks (including some time on-site) and would also deliver an audience engagement activity.

An overview of this opportunity can be downloaded from the Useful Documents section, on the right of this page. The deadline for sending proposals (using the separate form) to a.mcdonald@nls.uk is noon on Wednesday 21 December.

Proposals will be shortlisted in January by the Connecting Scotland’s Sounds board, and participating researchers will be invited to apply to work with one of the shortlisted projects in March after undertaking a range of training sessions in February. Up to 3 researcher-collection pairings will be made and supported from April to July through this pilot programme as part of the Connecting Scotland’s Sounds project.

If you know any SGSAH doctoral researchers who might be interested in this opportunity, please point them to information about how to apply to participate in the February training sessions here.
