        From: "Patrik Svensson" <patrik.svensson at humlab.umu.se>
        Subject: Five postdoctoral fellowships at HUMlab, Umeå University

Five international postdoctoral positions in the digital humanities are now
available at HUMlab, Umeå University, Sweden from September 1, 2009 or
January 15, 2010. The call is open, but 1-3 positions may be allocated to
the areas of "religion and the digital", "digital journalism", "architecture
and the digital", "next generation digital humanities tools" and/or
"visualization in the digital humanities".

HUMlab is an internationally recognized center for the humanities and
information technology. Much of the work takes place in a 5,300 square feet
studio space at the center of the university and in different kinds of
digital and hybrid environments. HUMlab is based on a double (or triple)
affiliation model where much of the work is done in close collaboration with
the humanities (or other) departments. HUMlab offers an open,  friendly,
creative and intellectually rich milieu for doing work in the humanities and
information technology.

The fellowships are for one year. Another year may be possible based on a
review as well as the availability of funding. Collaboration is a central
part of the ethos of HUMlab and among our strategic partners are
Kulturverket (local award-winning culture organization), Lund University
(the Humanities Laboratory), King's College London (Centre for Computing in
the Humanities) and the University of California (UC Humanities Research

Applicants will be expected to have a Ph.D. in a humanities discipline. In
exceptional cases, other areas and backgrounds can be of interest as well.
Applications should include a description of an envisioned postdoctoral
year-long project.

Please see http://blog.humlab.umu.se/postdocs for more information.
Applications should be submitted electronically by June 18, 2009. We look
forward to receiving your application.
