OFFER DESCRIPTION

The CARMEN Innovative Training Network (ITN) “Communal Art – Reconceptualising Metrical Epigraphy Network " is looking for 11 highly motivated Early Stage Researchers (ESRs). The offered positions are available with a starting date in April 2021 for a maximum duration of 36 months.

Studying poetry in the epigraphic Roman tradition will help to regain an eminent body of European folk art tradition. We will edit texts, analyse sociolinguistic, aesthetic, and gender topics, and discuss regional phenomena in textual and material culture. Our multidisciplinary and intersectoral programme will enable the ESRs to engage in academic research of highest level, as well as in issues of cultural heritage, knowledge transfer and contemporary non-elite culture all over Europe. With our innovative focus on digital humanities and cultural heritage, the ESRs learn new strategies and methods of data management, and the use of modern cutting-edge technologies.

The CARMEN network includes 8 beneficiaries and 11 partner organisations involving institutions of research, digitalization and cultural heritage conservation as well as a publishing house from 7 European Countries: Austria, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain.

More Information

Benefits

The salary consists of a monthly Living Allowance; additionally, researchers recruited within an ITN programme are entitled to receive a monthly Mobility Allowance and, if applicable, a Family Allowance depending on the marital status. The family status of a researcher will be determined at the date of her/his (first) recruitment in the action and remains fixed during the tenure of the position. The net salary will be determined after subtracting all compulsory (employer and employee) deductions and withholdings from the gross amounts in line with national legislation.
