Description

The Centre for Baltic and Scandinavian Archaeology (ZBSA) within the Stiftung Schleswig-Holsteinische Landesmuseen Schloss Gottorf invites applications from external research fellows for short term research stays at the ZBSA in 2016. ZBSA is a non-university research institution committed to international scientific standards. The scientific staff of ZBSA numbers more than 25 researchers – including senior as well as junior researchers, postdoctoral research fellows and doctoral students. The successful candidates will find a dynamic interdisciplinary research environment at the archaeological interface between Arts & Humanities and Natural Science. They will enjoy intensive scientific cooperation and full integration into the research activities of the ZBSA. The successful candidates will be expected to:

  • Conduct research based on studies of archaeological remains retrieved within the geographical working area of ZBSA, i.e. primarily the Baltic and Scandinavian region;
  • Participate in and contribute positively to the activities of the ZBSA, i.e. present their research in our internal research colloquia and submit a paper for our annual report.

Eligibility

Eligible candidates must be qualified researchers holding an outstanding Masters or a PhD degree in a scientific field relevant for the ZBSA research curriculum. They must be working on projects that can be well integrated into the ZBSA research programme. Thus, project proposals will be evaluated with reference to the research focus of the ZBSA. Moreover, applications should be concise with respect to the purpose and schedule of the stay.
