Paid internship for new History MA students

In October 2021, the School of History will welcome applications from new MA students for a paid internship role focused on working with local archives to enhance the use of collections in the School’s teaching.

This internship provides an exceptional opportunity to enhance links between the School of History, the University Library’s Special Collections, and West Yorkshire Archives Service (WYAS).

The successful candidate will provide a point of contact between School of History staff and students, the University’s Special Collections, and the West Yorkshire Archive Service to strengthen the use of local archival material in the School’s learning and teaching activities, including students’ assignments.

The intern will have the opportunity to develop and shape the exact form of the activities, and it is expected that it will include designing and delivering activities as well as developing resources.
