Are you a talented postdoctoral researcher? Have you worked with arts and cultural organisations? Are you passionate about supporting research and dissemination on aspects of cultural value? 

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to support the establishment and development of the new national Centre for Cultural Value, funded by the AHRC, Arts Council England and Paul Hamlyn Foundation. You will be part of a dedicated core team and a wider national network which will engage with and beyond the arts and cultural sector to support knowledge exchange in areas related to cultural value.

The Centre for Cultural Value will act as a custodian for cultural value research and as a bridge and facilitator of new and existing networks related to cultural value. The Research Associate will play a pivotal role in the early life of this new Centre, leading on the collation, review, synthesis and dissemination of existing and emerging research related to the value and impact of the arts on culture on audiences, and on society more broadly.

You will possess a PhD in arts management or cultural policy studies, or in a related field, and will have significant experience of networking and collaborating with arts and/or cultural organisations. You may also have experience of organising conferences, seminars, workshops and public engagement activities. Excellent interpersonal and communication skills are essential, as is a willingness to work flexibly and independently.
