An exciting new skills development and training opportunity funded by the AHRC, entitled 'Languages, Myths and Finds: Translating Norse and Viking Cultures for the 21st Century' is inviting applications form Early Career Researchers (ECRs) in the field of Old Norse-Icelandic and Viking Studies. This UK-wide programme will enable research students and to put their learning in the field of Norse and Viking studies into practice in the course of effective engagement with non-academic partners.
Together with a staff mentor, ECRs will lead small groups of PhD students in co-creating research outputs with non-academic stakeholders in selected localities with an interest in their Norse and Viking heritage. The programme provides skills training, an opportunity to network and develop a community engagement profile, as well as fully-funded research trips to the localities and to a private showing of the British Museum Vikings exhibition in March 2014.
Applications are invited from ECRs who have been awarded a PhD in a subject relevant to Old Norse-Icelandic and Viking Studies any time after 1 October 2008, or who will have submitted their PhD before 30 September 2013.
Further details can be found in the invitation to apply and the application form. The application deadline is 31 March 2013.
