Our PhD research placement scheme is designed to offer opportunities for current PhD students to apply and enhance research, communications and analytical skills and expertise outside of Higher Education as part of their wider research training and professional development. A PhD research placement at the
British Library offers the chance to experience research in a different environment to that of a university, to engage with a range of different research users and audiences, to gain insights into different potential postdoctoral career paths, and to make a tangible contribution to the activities and programmes of a
national library and major cultural organisation.
The application deadline is 5 pm on Monday, 18 February 2019.
Most placements can take place any time between May 2019 and March 2020 (any restrictions to this are specified in the individual placement profiles). Each placement is for 3 months full-time or (if feasible) the part-time equivalent.
