Updated: about 1 month ago
Job Type: PartTime
Deadline: 22 Jan 2021

UNCHARTED is seeking to appoint a partial-time pre-doc researcher (15h by week) for 7 months (5th February 2021 – 5th September 2021) 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 hold a degree in the field of political science, preferably in public policy management, and Master’s degree in public administration in European context. Track record in public administration and project management in cultural field. Written and verbal communication skills, including the ability to write for publication, present research proposals and results. Linkage and participation in postgraduate training programs and centres of study on economic and political aspects of cultural policy would be an asset.

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.
