Research Opportunities

Research Opportunities with the Heart of Glens Landscape Partnership Scheme

If you are interested in gaining heritage and conservation skills and experience we are happy to discuss a range of research opportunities including dissertation topics.

Dissertations and similar types of projects provide students and recent graduates with excellent opportunities to work on sites of the highest quality and to make meaningful contributions to heritage and nature conservation. And of course help us enormously in learning about and managing our landscape. We have three principles for research projects:

  • Projects should aim to provide some results of benefit to the Glens landscape and/or the wider environment
  • Projects will not adversely affect the Glens
  • Projects are carried out safely

Our current ideas for projects that we would find useful are listed below.

If you are interested in any of these as part of your studies or experience building, please get in touch using the contact details provided. We would normally arrange to have a more in-depth discussion at a face-to-face meeting, on the phone or by e-mail. With the agreement of your supervisor (if a student project), you would then send us a full proposal of your project, including dates, background information you will need from us, equipment and methods to be used, logistics such as travel and accommodation, and the project outputs. We would subsequently accept or refine your proposal, confirm what you will be doing by letter and send you a permit and a health and safety risk assessment. Once you had completed your project, you would send us an electronic copy of it. Note, though, that we cannot provide financial support or accommodation.
