The MHRA (Modern Humanities Research Association) is looking for a second postgraduate editor for its online journal, MHRA Working Papers in the Humanities. Working Papers was launched in 2006 and is aimed at early career researchers and postgraduates. The successful applicant will also serve as a second postgraduate representative to the MHRA Executive Committee, attending committee meetings and advising on postgraduate matters. In 2015 the journal will be linked to a postgraduate conference, and therefore the position will also involve an element of conference organisation.
The position starts in January 2015 and ends in December 2016. Whilst unpaid, it offers invaluable experience in the world of academic publishing, as well as representing a chance to work constructively for the future of the Humanities more broadly. Applications are welcome from postgraduates working in any of the ‘modern humanities’, defined as relating to the modern and medieval languages, literatures and cultures of Europe (including English and the Slavonic languages, and the cultures of the European diaspora).
Applicants should send a CV and cover letter, together with a letter of support from their supervisor, as email attachments to Dr B. Burns, Honorary Secretary, by 1 December 2014. Informal enquiries are welcome and may be addressed to the current representative, Sophie Corser.
