Placement Opportunities 2017 & 2018

Open for applications

Participants will be applying for a grant which will go towards the costs of the placement. Successful applicants will have their accommodation and supervision covered. Participants will need to budget for food (will be different per week depending on country chosen) and arrange and fund their travel. If there is any change to this, it will be indicated next to the placement.

We might be able to fund placements to other European destinations (other than the Partner we usually work with) as long as the duration of the placement covers 60 days (min.) and the applicant studies or recently graduated at one of our Consortium Partners (University of Bristol, Kent, Chester, Warwick, Exeter, Bournemouth, Glasgow and University of Wales Trinity St David Royal Carter). If you do not see your university listed, please contact us.

Please read through the details below (will be updated once things are confirmed) and contact us if you are interested.

An opportunity for a group to go and work with Dr Mihai Gligor, PhD, Head of the History, Archaeology and Museology department within “1 Decembrie 1918″ University in Alba Iulia. The group will assist staff in analysing the human and pottery remains that have been found over the years. Ideally for forensic anthropology students, this is an 8 week practical placement that will see you working and contributing towards the work of the university. The Erasmus + grant will cover accommodation, participants will have to fund their food (about 70 Euros per week) and sort out their flights, ideally to land on the same day for airport transfers. There are now flights available to Cluj from Birmingham, Liverpool and Sheffield/Doncaster in addition to Luton.

If you are interested, please download and fill out the application form, available on the EASE main page. If you have any questions, then please do not hesitate to contact us

They will also do some experimental archaeology and assist with setting up an exhibition

Participants will be accommodated in a self catering flat  situated within walking distance from the university.

The working programme is Monday to Friday, with weekends free to explore the surroundings.

 

It is possible for some of our partners to host some staff visits as well. Alternatively, we are happy to discuss the possibility of funding a placement to a different partner staff already have a connection with. If any staff are interested, they are welcome to contact us to discuss the possibility.
