ScARF is setting up a Student research network, open to any undergraduate or postgraduate students studying or working within Scottish Archaeology. Students do not have to be registered at a Scottish instituition, just studying or researching some aspect of Scottish archaeology.
The aims of the network are:
- to encourage collaboration within the postgraduate community working in Scotland;
- to help students gain experience in presenting their research at conferences and other events;
- to encourage students to share their research through the ScARF website, thus helping keep the framework relevant and up to date but also gaining publicity for the students themselves.
The network is still evolving, but so far there are plans for a series of free to attend workshops (covering archaeological subjects as well as the more technical aspects of contributing to ScARF) and funding to be made available to help students attend selected conferences and events. Students are the future of archaeological research and by building a relationship with ScARF, we can ensure that future research is relevant and effectively contributes to our understanding of the past.
This section of the website will develop as the network does, so check back soon! In the meantime, you can sign up for the monthly e-newsletter by visiting (http://eepurl.com/bCFibT) and you will be the first to know of any updates to the Student Network.
