Deadline: 1 March 2014
English and Related Literature; Based at University of York and Odense (Denmark)
Jointly based at the University of Southern Denmark (Odense) and the University of York, the Centre for Medieval Literature (CML) www.sdu.dk/cml is a centre of excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation. The Centre takes an integrated European approach to the study of Medieval Literature and welcomes applications from those working on the literary cultures of medieval Europe, from Scandinavia to the Middle East. Research projects will fall within the three main research areas of CML: languages, fictionality and canon formation and will normally result in the publication of a monograph or a series of articles in edited collections and international peer-reviewed journals.
You will be committed to collaboration which unites scholarship across disciplines and languages, and creating a shared research environment across SDU and York by spending extended periods of time in both institutions. You will hold a PhD in a relevant area of Medieval Studies (Literature, Philology, Linguistics, Manuscript Studies, History) and be able to work at an advanced level in at least two of the languages of Medieval Europe.
Informal inquiries can be made to Professor Elizabeth Tyler: email@example.com. The post is full time and available from 29 September 2014, for a period of 3 years.
