MA in Medieval Icelandic Studies at Háskóli Íslands

I received a reminder that the University of Iceland is still accepting applications for its excellent MA programme in Medieval Icelandic Studies for the year 2009/10:

MA in Medieval Icelandic Studies
University of Iceland in cooperation with the Árni Magnússon Institute for Icelandic Studies Reykjavík, Iceland

The programme is aimed at providing postgraduate students with the necessary tools to study Old/Medieval Icelandic Texts in the original and in their manuscript context, with a special emphasis on interdisciplinary study.

Deadline for application is March 15th each year.

Jobs for Runologists!

The Riksantikvarieämbetet in Visby, Sweden, is looking for two post-doctoral runologists to work on a new research project. Rather than take the risk of trying to translate it myself, I’ll just post the description in Swedish:

Med stöd från Stiftelsen Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (RJ) och Kungl. Vitterhets Historie och Antikvitets Akademien (KVHAA) utlyses två anställningar inom runforskningsområdet för forskare med avlagd doktorsexamen. Anställningarna är placerade vid Riksantikvarieämbetet, Visby, och är femåriga, uppdelat i två perioder om två respektive tre år.

Full details are available here: utlysning-runanstallningar-090128. The closing date is 1 April.
