AHRA PhD Students Representatives
Call for Applications
Tue 29 Nov—Mon 09 Jan 2023
The Architectural Humanities Research Association (AHRA) is looking for two PhD Students to join the AHRA Steering Group for a term of three years, from January 2023 to January 2026. AHRA is a not-for-profit academic organisation that was created to provide an inclusive and comprehensive support network of researchers in the architectural humanities across the UK and worldwide. It promotes, supports, develops, and disseminates high-quality research in all areas of architectural humanities. The organisation is entirely run by the work of volunteers, and hence this position is also on a voluntary basis. You will be joining an exciting academic organisation, with the opportunity to impact its operations and future directions.
The Steering Group meets three times every year for half a day either in person or virtual, to discuss the aims and objectives of AHRA, and its future development. This includes our two events, the annual International Conferences and the annual Research Student Symposia, and our two publications, the AHRA Critiques Series: Critical Studies in Architectural Humanities (https://www.routledge.com/Critiques/book-series/AHRA) and AHRA Journal “Architecture and Culture” (https://www.tandfonline.com/journals/rfac20). The representative could also join one of our Working Groups, (1) Conferences & Symposia, (2) Lobbying, (3) REF Response, (4) Media & Membership. If you would like to know more about AHRA please have a look at our website (https://ahra-architecture.org) or follow us on Twitter (@ArchHumanities).
In order to apply for the role, you need to be enrolled in a PhD Programme in Architecture, Architectural Humanities, History, Theory, Criticism, Design, or a related discipline. If you have any further questions about the role, please get in touch with the Chair of AHRA Tilo Amhoff (T.Amhoff@brighton.ac.uk).
AHRA is committed to equality, diversity, and inclusion. We promote applications from all PhD Students in our architectural humanities community, irrespective of their background, belief or identity, recognising the benefits that a diverse association can bring and particularly encourage applications from members that are currently underrepresented in our Steering Group. Applicants should submit one PDF containing the following:
- Cover Letter describing your interest and qualification for the position
