        Subject: opportunity for a virtual world developer Maynooth University


We have an exciting opportunity for a programmer/researcher with to be 
part of a collaborative project hosted by Maynooth University and 
Trinity College Dublin who together form a node in the Humanities 
Virtual World Consortium (HVWC).

The HVWC is developing an infrastructure to enable significant and 
sustainable humanistic inquiry in virtual worlds. The Consortium is 
developing a Unity3D-based platform to create a web-accessible, 
multi-player virtual world system to support four
distinct research projects, each designed to use the virtual world as 
the primary means of both conducting and communicating research.

The goal of the project based at MU/TCD is create a simulation of the 
Battle of Mount Street Bridge which took place during the Easter Rising 
of 1916. The project, entitled "Contested Memories: The Battle of Mount 
Street Bridge" will utilize a variety of primary sources such as witness 
statements, ballistics and geospatial and temporal information to create 
a simulation of this iconic battle in order to address outstanding 
historical research questions.
