Black Advisory Hub


The Black Advisory Hub is seeking two postgraduate students to contribute to the next phase of the Anti-Racist Glossary project, which was initiated by undergraduates in 2020, continued by a postgraduate team in 2022,  and will now extend from February to June 2023 before final publication. The work will involve updating and editing the current draft of the student-created Anti-Racist Glossary with a particular focus on an accompanying Toolkit of guides and resources for staff and students. It will also involve ongoing consultation and research with student and staff stakeholders.  

Applicants must be current or recently graduated postgraduate students at Cambridge University with an in-depth knowledge of UK higher education terminology on race and associated concepts, and a commitment to supporting staff and students. We are particularly interested in welcoming Black postgraduate applicants as the resources will be hosted by the Black Advisory Hub.  

Essential criteria include: some experience working on anti-racism or related projects; clear written communication for online as well as more formal reports; as well as the ability to self-direct for independent and collaborative work.  

Desirable criteria include: experience facilitating interviews or focus groups;  knowledge of Cambridge educational practices (e.g. with an undergraduate degree from Cambridge); some experience of teaching (e.g. as a supervisor, seminar or workshop facilitator); experience developing online resources and/or workshop activities. 

Applicants must be available for short-term project work between Feb – June 2023. Please note that supervisor and College Tutor permission for paid work during term will be sought for successful applicants.
