Call for Applications for 2018 Manchester Wesley Research Centre Visiting Research Fellowships

We are currently accepting applications for the 2018 John Rylands Research Institute-MWRC Joint Visiting Fellowship and the 2018 MWRC Visiting Fellow programme. Applications are due by 15 and 31 January 2018 respectively. For full details on the Fellowships, including reports on the experiences of recent Visiting Fellows, visit:

EHS Webmaster and Publicity Officer

We are also seeking a replacement Webmaster and Publicity Officer. This is a paid post of around 100 hours per year and involves website and blog maintenance, publicity via social media and some content creation. While we welcome all expressions of interest, and expert knowledge is not a pre-requisite, this is a post that might particularly suit postgraduate students or early career academics with some experience of online media.

EHS Publicity Secretary

With a view to increasing the Society's profile and growing its membership, the Committee has decided to create a new post, that of Publicity Secretary. Recognizing that while we communicate better with existing members than potential ones, we envisage this as a broad, proactive role with an outward-facing emphasis - and a great chance to play a central part in EHS activities and events.
