Soillse, in collaboration with Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, is inviting applications for a two-year research contract from suitably qualified fieldworkers with proven capacities for research into Gaelic in the Outer Hebrides and other island communities. The fieldworkers will have key roles in a major network project investigating the current state of the language in a key geographical area of its traditional use.
These positions will be supported and supervised via the Soillse Research Network for the Maintenance and Revitalisation of Gaelic Language and Culture, working out of Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, the University of the Highlands and Islands. Candidates will need to be mobile, have fluent Gaelic, and demonstrate excellent research skills. The successful candidates will be remunerated according to the SMO pay scale, within the range of £29,574 – £32,250, for a period of two years.
