Individuals interested in pursuing research on medieval English scribal texts or in related areas of the history of the English language are welcome to contact Professor Merja Stenroos (merja.stenroosuis.no) or Dr Jacob Thaisen (jacob.thaisenuis.no) at the University of Stavanger. We especially welcome proposals compatible with the interests and expertise of the Middle English Scribal Texts Programme. Funding for a research stay would be sought jointly from the Research Council of Norway's Yggdrasil programme. Please note that, as of 2012, it is the potential host institution who is responsible for submitting the application.

The Yggdrasil mobility programme funds research stays of a duration of between three and twelve months; scholarships awarded under the current call are to be taken up no early than 1 August 2013. Eligible are current doctoral students and those who have successfully completed a doctorate within the past six years. The current call is open to citizens of Council of Europe member states (except the Nordic countries), as well as of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Egypt, India, Israel, Japan, Mexico and South Africa. The application deadline is 28 November.
