Description:

The University of Stavanger invites applications for a three year
post-doctoral research fellowship in Middle English at the Faculty of Arts and
Education in the Department of Cultural Studies and Languages, beginning
September 1st, 2013.

The position is funded jointly by the Research Council of Norway and the
University of Stavanger, as part of the project ‘The Language and Geography of
Middle English Documentary Texts’.  The project studies linguistic variation
in English fifteenth-century local documents (legal and business documents,
inventories, letters, etc.).  It will result in a corpus of Middle English
Local Documents (MELD) and two book volumes. The project group consists of 8-9
researchers, including colleagues in Glasgow and Helsinki.

For more information about the project, go to: http://www.uis.no/mest.

The aim of the position is to strengthen the research within this area and to
give researchers with a relevant doctoral degree an opportunity for further
qualification. The appointee will work with a team of established researchers
and pursue research that will both make an important contribution to the
project and substantially boost her/his own research record. The fellow will
take part in the collection of materials and in producing the corpus and
database, and will co-author at least one of the main publications. The fellow
will take the responsibility for a specific sub-corpus or other defined part
of the project, chosen according to her/his research interests and the overall
needs of the project.

The fellow will be expected to travel to British archives, and to work with
original materials as well as digital images. It is also assumed that the
fellow will attend conferences relevant to the field of the project and
publish her/his own work in the form of conference presentations and articles.

Apart from such travels, (s)he will be based at the University of Stavanger.
It is assumed that (s)he will work full time on the project and be an active
participant in the research community in Stavanger.

The successful applicant must have a produced a doctoral thesis in a topic
relevant to the concerns of the project. Applicants who have submitted a
thesis will be considered, but cannot be appointed until the thesis has been
successfully defended. The applicant should have a strong competence in
English linguistics/philology, which must include a solid training in Middle
English. (S)he must have some experience of reading and transcribing late
medieval handwriting. Experience of working with medieval legal documents will
be considered a very strong advantage.
