‘Accounts with Interest’ – Opening up the Archives of Barclays Bank
Closing date for applications: 30 October 2017
The University of Liverpool and Barclays Group Archives (BGA) invite applications for a fully-funded AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award PhD studentship to start in January 2018. While corporate archives are sometimes seen only as sites of historical research, this PhD research is different and will focus on what the archive does for the company in the present. The studentship is designed to prepare the candidate for a successful career in either academic or private sectors.
The successful candidate will enjoy privileged opportunities to work as a member of the professional team responsible for Barclays Group Archives in Wythenshawe, Greater Manchester exploring the possibilities for exploiting customer and other nominal banking data within the information technology environment available to BGA and investigating how such a local development might be exploited in the context of the wider banking archive sector.
‘Accounts with Interest’ is conceived as a genuinely interdisciplinary project within the digital humanities; we are keen to attract suitably-qualified candidates from any area who can demonstrate their potential to carry out a research project designed to enable digital access to the nominal and related information held in archival records.
