UNCHARTED Post-doc researcher

Updated: 4 months ago
Job Type: PartTime
Deadline: 05 Oct 2020

UNCHARTED is seeking to appoint a partial-time post-doc researcher (15h by week) for 10 months (15th October 2020 – 15th August 2020) H2020 European Project UNCHARTED: “Understanding, Capturing and Fostering the Societal Value of Culture”

UNCHARTED seeks to provide a comparative, holistic and integrated vision of the plurality of values associated with culture in contemporary Europe. It also attempts to articulate this vision to cultural policy analysis. The research work focuses on the valuation practices of the actors involved in cultural life. In this respect, three areas and three types of fundamental actors in the value dynamics of culture are distinguished: the field of cultural participation, in which citizenship is the protagonist; the field of cultural production and heritage, where the professionals of creation and preservation are the ones who take the initiative; and the field of cultural administration, in which it is the experts and politicians who decide. The project takes these three areas and this basic typology of actors as a starting point to structure the study of the different aspects involved in this evaluative dynamic: the emergence of values, the configuration of a value order and the political impulse of values.


Applicants must have a PhD in Culture and Heritage Management or Cultural Policy. Experience and capacity of research related to public cultural policies at both regional and international levels and new forms of governance in the cultural policy domain must be accredited. In the same way, links with programs or centers of study on social aspects of contemporary culture and cultural policy, as well as the management of specialized databases will be positively valued.

The duties of the researcher during this period are:

  • To make an extensive review of the research literature on the configuration of the values of culture.
  • To Identify the plurality of values of culture in cultural administration.
  • To identify and analyze the plurality of values of culture in cultural administration.
  • To write a report on the emergence of values in cultural administration.
