Four researchers are needed to work on an ESRC-funded project, titled “Latin American Antiracism in a ‘Post-Racial’ Age, directed by Dr. Monica Moreno Figueroa (University of Cambridge) and co-directed by Professor Peter Wade (University of Manchester). The project starts on 1 January 2017 and is of 24 months duration. The project will hire four Research Associates, two based in the University of Manchester and two in the University of Cambridge.
