We are now advertising for our second graduate traineeship post within the project. This one-year post is intended to provide pre-course experience to a graduate prior to undergoing professional training on one of the recognised archive courses. Being based within futureArch, it particularly suits an applicant wishing to develop an understanding of how the shift to digital communications impacts the work of archivists.
The postholder will support the curatorial and technical work of the futureArch project, while sampling a variety of more traditional archival work, including providing services to researchers in the Special Collections Reading Room. The postholder will also participate in activities organised through the OWL Graduate Trainee Scheme.
Further details and application forms are available here. The closing date for applications is 10 May 2010 and we expect to interview on 1 June. For a flavour of some of the work Victoria has done during her time as a trainee take a look at some of her posts to this blog and to the Bodleian graduate trainee scheme blog.
