The Research Associate will conduct manuscript-related research for the European Research Council Starting Grant Project, ‘Authority and Innovation in Early Franciscan Thought in Paris (c. 1220-45)’. The Principal Investigator on the Project is Dr Lydia Schumacher, Senior Research Fellow in Medieval Philosophy and Theology in the Department of Theology and Religious Studies, to whom the Research Associate will be directly responsible. The tasks of the Associate have been outlined in the further particulars and require excellent Latin, Latin paleographical, and English language skills as well as knowledge of the principles of, and experience with, the editing of medieval texts. The special focus of the project is the works of Alexander of Hales and John of La Rochelle, and above all, the collaboratively authored Summa Halensis, so experience working with these texts or others in the wider Franciscan intellectual tradition will be a plus.
The selection process will include a presentation on the candidate’s current research; a panel interview; and an assessment of the candidate’s skills in English, Latin, Latin paleography, and medieval textual editing.
Interviews are likely to be held in the second half of January, that is, in the weeks commencing 15 or 22 January. However, this may be subject to change.
