Research Fellow (Digital History of Technology), Science Museum Group


Do you have a high level of understanding of digital humanities and/or the history of science and technology? Would you like the opportunity to work at the heart of a major research project?

The Science Museum Group is 10 months into its major research project, “The Congruence Engine: Digital Tools for New Collections-Based Industrial Histories”.  Its aim is to show how digital humanities, AI and other computational tools can be used to link collections for the purpose of doing new historical work and to enhance access to collections.

It brings together digital (including digital humanities) practitioners with amateur and professional historians, curators and community groups to conduct individual and group research projects on industrial history and its contemporary resonances. The project will consider the textiles, energy and communications sectors in turn, with activity planned for museums and cities across the UK. You can find out more here and here.

We are now recruiting for Research Fellow (Digital History of Technology) to join on a fixed term contract (until November 2024) working 35 hours per week.
