Project Administrator (Part Time, Fixed Term)

The 24-month AHRC- funded research project, A Cinematic Musée Imaginaire of Spatial Cultural Differences [CineMuseSpace], proposes to enlarge André Malraux's idea of the Musée Imaginaire [Museum without Walls] to display, compare, contrast, and communicate spatial differences deeply embedded in the cinematic image, in order to generate a greater level of understanding and engagement amongst different cultures. Space is an expression of how societies see themselves while films, as spatially organised narrative constructs, reveal with unique immediacy architecture as experience.  Our aim is to generate a novel understanding of deeply rooted societal differences, by unlocking culturally significant architectural records folded away in the film medium.

CineMuseSpace is an interdisciplinary research project, involving architecture, film studies, museum studies, cultural studies and anthropology.  It is led by Prof François Penz (Department of Architecture, University of Cambridge) as PI, with Dr Suzanne MacLeod (School of Museum Studies, University of Leicester) as Co-I, together with Prof  Andong Lu (School of Architecture University of Nanjing) and Dr Simone Chung (School of Architecture, National University of Singapore) as international Co-Investigators.

The purpose of the role is to undertake duties of a clerical nature and provide support to the project and members of the team, which includes organising meetings, travel, visas as necessary, workshops as well as liaising with the project members to ensure to ensure the timely delivery of documentation and that information is provided accurately and efficiently. In addition, the administrator role will be attending and recording project meetings and key discussion fora.

The closing date for applications is Sunday 2nd July 2017.

Interviews will be held on Tuesday 11th July 2017. If shortlisted, you will be notified by Friday 7th July 2017.
