Subject: EMiC Postdoctoral Fellowship (deadline: 1 March 2010)
The Editing Modernism in Canada project, funded by a Strategic Knowledge
Cluster grant (2008-15) from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research
Council, invites applications to its 2010 competition for a postdoctoral
fellowship. Our current EMiC postdoctoral fellow, Meagan Timney, is
working under the supervision of Ray Siemens at the Electronic Textual
Cultures Lab at the University of Victoria, and in collaboration with
Martin Holmes at UVic's Humanities Computing and Media Centre, on the
development of the Image Markup Tool and publication engine for the
production of the project's digital editions and archives.
EMiC offers two-year postdoctoral fellowships valued at $31,500 per year
to PhD students in the final year of their program and recent graduates
who are engaged in research relevant to the project's mandate: to
produce critically edited texts by modernist Canadian authors. The
awards are tenable at any of the EMiC partner universities and are
supervised by, or undertaken in collaboration with, co-applicants or
Although preference will be given to research projects most directly
relevant to the task of producing critically edited texts by modernist
Canadian authors, these awards are open to recently graduated
postdoctoral scholars engaged in research projects relevant to one or
more of the three components of this project: literary modernism,
scholarly editing, and the digital humanities.
Applicants must not hold a tenure or tenure-track position or other
full-time employment. Fellows are expected to engage in full-time
postdoctoral research during the term of the award.
Preference will be given to recent graduates, that is, to graduates
applying within five years of receiving their doctoral degree.
The awards are not renewable beyond the second year.
EMiC will provide an allocation of $31,500 per year to the partner
universities at which successful applicants propose to engage in their
research. EMiC co-applicants or collaborators will be responsible for
ensuring that those funds are administered in keeping with the
guidelines established by their respective universities. In a
sponsorship letter the postdoctoral supervisor should clearly indicate
the university's willingness to host the EMiC postdoctoral fellow and
the arrangements made regarding office space, library access, supplies
and teaching that will be made available.
Applications must be submitted via the online form available at the
project website: http://editingmodernism.ca/postdoc_funding.html
Application deadline: 1 March 2010
