Would you like to experience the thrill of cutting-edge historical research?
Get involved. Be part of the team of an ERC-Advanced Grant Project!
The RUTTER team welcomes students and researchers of any level willing to contribute to the project, both through remote collaborations or working at our location, at the Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon. While the main focus of research is the history of science, the team is multi-disciplinary and related disciplines can be considered for an internship. From working with archival materials and editing documents, to digital humanities and the setting up of databases, we have a bit of everything. If you have some special linguistic skills (Arabic, Farsi, Mandarin), we are even more interested. We offer an informal, international, and very dynamic environment, where senior and junior researchers will support visiting researchers developing their work.
Although the cooperation is on a voluntary basis, some funding opportunities exist like the Erasmus program, COST short-term scientific missions and the 'Visit to ERC grantee' Fellowship Programmes 2020. We’ll be glad to help potential applicants to explore these possibilities.
Possible activities to develop under the supervision of RUTTER members include but are not limited to:
- Study and transcription of manuscript documentation from the 16th and 17th century;
- Document search and classification, via online catalogs and archival search;
- Participation in the activities of the research team (meetings, seminars, conferences, etc.).
A final report will be asked at the end of the collaboration.
