This Postdoctoral Researcher will work on the ERC project `Youth Engagement in European Language Preservation, 1900-2020' under the supervision of Associate Professor R ona Nic Cong il as the Principal Investigator (PI). The position will focus on youth engagement in the Catalan language and it will offer the opportunity to be part of a ground-breaking project on the intersection between European youth and the preservation of minority or regional European languages in the period since 1900.

The successful candidate will be guided by Associate Professor Nic Cong il and will be expected to take the lead in developing research to be targeted at top international journals. Authorship will be attributed appropriately, and in line with the project. The successful candidate will also be expected to disseminate research at international conferences and workshops. The team will work together through online communication and also regular face to face meetings. This project has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union's Horizon 2020 programme.

This is an academic research role, where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training and development under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator.
