Historical Antarctic Base Research Opportunity

Would you like the chance to work alongside BAS (British Antarctic Survey) and UKAHT (UK Antarctic Heritage Trust) staff researching an Antarctic historic base?

The University of Hertfordshire, in collaboration with BAS, is now offering a fee waiver for a full-time MA by Research to start in January 2016. Based in Cambridge and using the extensive archive material held at BAS, the MA will produce a biography of Horseshoe Base Y which is currently managed by UKAHT. It is intended that the results of this MA will inform the future care and conservation work of UKAHT at this site, and contribute significantly to the telling of the story of Horseshoe and the men that worked there.

The deadline for applications is 12th November 2015.
