We're hiring: Research Fellow in Olfactory Heritage Science
10 November 2021
UCL Institute for Sustainable Heritage are looking for a Research Fellow in Olfactory Heritage Science.
Working on the Horizon 2020 project Odeuropa, of which ISH is a partner, the postholder will work with international partners and stakeholders to develop an understanding of the role of olfaction in how heritage narratives are developed for the purpose of exhibitions and displays in GLAM environments. The postholder will also carry out a number of impact measurement studies in collaboration with European research partners and museum partners across the UK, in order to better understand visitor engagement with olfactory information and olfactory objects in the context of exhibitions.
This post is available from 1 December 2021 until 31 December 2022 in the first instance.
The candidate should hold a PhD in a subject relevant to olfactory heritage (Heritage studies, Sensory science, Anthropology, Psychology or other social sciences). Experience in conducting quantitative and qualitative research, including participatory studies, is essential, as it is an understanding of visitors experience in heritage settings. A background in sensory research, with a focus on the history of smells, is desirable.
