Subject Specialist in Modern Naval History

In September 2010 the National Museum of the Royal Navy in Portsmouth was awarded a Stage 1 pass by the Heritage Lottery Fund for its project – ‘Telling the Story of the Royal Navy and its People in the 20th and 21st Centuries’. The Museum now wishes to appoint a subject specialist in Modern Naval History to play a key role as it develops its exhibitions and programmes for this new gallery development due to open in early 2014. This will be a joint appointment with the University of Portsmouth and the postholder will spend 0.3 of the post working with the School of Social, Historical and Literary Studies (SSHLS) on a variety of research and teaching projects.
