The Crown Estate – Caird Resewarch Fellowships
The collections of the National Maritime Museum enjoy an international reputation. The Museum is committed to encouraging high-quality research on the collections and related maritime subjects.
In partnership with The Crown Estate, the Museum invites applications for two Short-term Research Fellowships for 2011.
£2,000 per month, for three months
Tenable from January 2011
The Museum and The Crown Estate are particularly keen to receive proposals that explore:
(i) The geomorphological history of the coastline, seabed and associated features within the Humber estuary, and the nearby offshore sandbanks, or
(ii) Coastal changes in historic times – linking offshore bathymetric changes and cliff recession along the Holderness coast, or
(iii) The geomorphological history of the Dogger Bank.
These Fellowships will provide a unique opportunity for research that uses historical collections to understand our marine environment today.
Candidates with a proven record in the fields of historical geography and environmental history, or those with cognate research interests in marine geography or environmental science, are encouraged to apply.
