AHRC Future of Language Research FellowshipsClosing Date: 26/10/2021
Funding for two research fellows to conduct horizon scanning and gap analysis to inform the future of possible AHRC investment in languages research.
AHRC are looking to fund two research fellows to conduct horizon scanning and gap analysis and related tasks to inform the future of possible AHRC investment in languages research.
Working with AHRC staff and data, this appointment will take note of existing achievements, including but not restricted to the Open World Research Initiative (OWRI). However, it will look beyond AHRC’s previous funding to identify new and emerging research themes and relevant policy areas that languages research could address. This would include the research agendas of:
- Both academic and non-academic communities
- Wwider stakeholders
- Government departments
- Those that do not usually receive funding from AHRC.
This horizon-scanning exercise will focus on the AHRC remit area of global languages.
It is anticipated that the post holders will complete an initial review within the first month (due end of January 2022 or early February 2022), followed by a fuller final report at the end of the five-month period (deadline end of May 2022).
Outputs expected from this exercise in the final report include, but are not limited to:
- Literature review
- Gap analysis of existing projects and the wider languages research landscape
- Mapping areas of research interest (ARI) with the government departments’ areas of interest.
