Applications are invited for two full-time, two-year fixed-term Postdoctoral Research Fellows to work on a new project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, entitled ‘Police and Community in Twentieth-Century Scotland - a Social History’. The project is a collaboration between the School of Law and the School of History, Classics and Archaeology at the University of Edinburgh. The project will combine historical archival research with oral history interviews involving former police officers to produce a social history of policing in the twentieth century and to enable better understanding of the dynamics shaping police/community relations today. The two Research Fellows will work with Dr Louise Jackson (History) and Professor Richard Sparks (Law); one will be based in each of the two schools. The closing date is 26 March.
