Two Doctoral fellowships in Nordic Archaeology at The Museum of Cultural History, University of Oslo
The Department of Archaeology is seeking qualified and highly motivated research talents for two doctoral fellowships (SKO 1017) within the field of Nordic Archaeology.
The Department of Archaeology is managing Norway’s largest collections of Nordic antiquities, medieval art and runic inscriptions and is responsible for the management of cultural monuments and rock art of ten counties in southeastern Norway, according to the Cultural Heritage Act. Each year, the Department carries out c. 50-60 excavations. With a current staff of 60 archaeologists, the Department has expertise in most archaeological periods and subject matters and with a particularly large milieu in Mesolithic and Viking Age archaeology.
We seek candidates with the potential to mobilize the Museum’s collections and use material from management excavations in their research, while at the same time aiming at methodological and theoretical sophistication. The ability for a broad and innovative academic scope will be accentuated in the evaluation of the candidates. The University of Oslo encourages international mobility, projects with plans for international mobility are welcomed.
