Hunterian Associates Programme

Hunterian Associates Programme

Following the success of the first two years, we were delighted to be shortlisted for the Times Higher Education Award 2013 in Outstanding Support for Early Career Researchers.  April 2014 saw the start of another exciting year for the programme, with 10 new associates working on 9 varied projects.  Projects are listed at Hunterian Associates' projects.

Showcase Event planned for 5th November 2014, in The Hunterian's art gallery at 5:30. Click Here to register.

Applications and recruitment to the 2015 cohort will take place soon after this event, with a view to starting in Feb / March 2015. 

Recognised as a Collection of National Significance to Scotland, The Hunterian provides an inventive platform for postgraduate researchers to share their expert knowledge and to develop their skills through meaningful public engagement and knowledge exchange activities.

By proposing creative ways to present their ideas to the wider public, Hunterian Associates are able to broaden their perspectives on their own research-in-process, seeing the ways in which their topics connect to the collection strategies of past and present, as well as garnering immediate feedback through discussion and debate with a public audience. The Programme encourages Associates to plan their projects to complete by December following their start date.

Projects can take the form of gallery talks and tours, podcasts focusing on particular artefacts, web-based exhibitions, interpretive performance or installation, or any other form that engages with the public effectively. 

Through the programme, the cutting-edge research being carried out by postgraduates connects in exciting and unexpected ways with the University’s extensive collections.
