Issued: Tue, 12 Dec 2017 09:27:00 GMT

 

We are delighted to announce the placement of 20 Doctoral Researchers with 15 organisations across Scotland as part of the 2017/18 SGSAH Internship and Artist Residence Programme. 

This year there were more opportunities and applications than ever ensuring it was a highly competitive process. Throughout 2018, researchers will join teams at Archaeology Scotland, Creative Dundee, Glasgow Life, HIV Scotland, Summerlee Museum of Industrial Life, and others. Host organisations gain access the talent of researchers to deliver a specific piece of work or project. The researchers add tangible value to a host organisation whilst developing their own marketable skills and expertise.
