The John Rylands Research Institute, a unique partnership between the Library and the University’s Faculty of Humanities, is currently advertising a one-year Research Associate position.

The JRRI brings together researchers and curators to work on innovative projects focusing on the Library’s archives, manuscripts and printed collections.

A priority area for the JRRI this year is modern and contemporary literature, which is a great strength of our archival holdings.

The closing date for applications is 17 July. For more information about the post, follow this link:
