Hosts wanted for 2023 BSHS Engagement Fellows

The British Society for the History of Science (BSHS) is delighted to announce the fifth round of scheme to support small and local museums, archives, galleries and libraries whose collections can be linked to themes in the history of science, technology, engineering and medicine. The scheme funds the placement of a Master’s or PhD student with heritage organisations and museums. The Engagement Fellow receives £2000 for the equivalent of about one month’s work at 35 hrs per week (timescales can be arranged between the partner museum and student) and the institutions receive £1000 towards the costs of public engagement outputs related to the research undertaken.


If selected, your proposal would be circulated to postgraduate students studying the history of science, technology, engineering and medicine who will then apply to be involved in the project.


The deadline for applications is Monday 17 April 2023 and application forms and further details are available on our website:
