        Subject: University of Oslo Ibsen PhD Fellowships


Let's try this again.  Here is more information on the PhD Fellowships

http://uio.easycruit.com/vacancy/1192561/62045?iso=no

The application deadline is 1 August 2014. One of the fellowships
stipulates a preference for projects in digital humanities, especially
those using our newly launched relational, event-based database,
IbsenStage, which I’d also like to take the opportunity to call people’s
attention to:

https://ibsenstage.hf.uio.no

IbsenStage aims to collect data on all stagings of Ibsen’s dramas from
their premieres to today.

We are looking for applicants with innovative and exciting projects within
the field of Ibsen Studies broadly defined, who will be able and ready to
work on an independent Ph.D. project starting in January 2015 or so.
Because of the way the application process works here, the project
description is  the most important part of the application, and successful
candidates will have a well formulated and conceived research project with
a workable methodology and clear theoretical framework. Applications may of
course be written in English, as English is the working language for the
Centre for Ibsen Studies.

Dear all

The job opportunity below might well be of interest to someone on

that the GCI is one of the organisations behind ARCHES.

Grant Opportunity: NEH/DFG Bilateral Digital Humanities Program

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) in the United States and
the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft e.V., DFG)
are working together to offer support for projects that contribute to
developing and implementing digital infrastructures and services for
humanities research.

In order to encourage new approaches and develop innovative methods in any
field of the humanities, these grants provide funding ranging from $100,000
to $350,000 (approximately €70,000 to €250,000) for up to three years in
any of the following areas:

* developing innovative methods—as well as standards and best practices—for
building and merging digital collections that are significant and of major
current interest, for use in humanities research;
* developing and implementing generic tools, methods, and techniques for
accessing and processing digital resources relevant to humanities research;
* creating new digital modes of scholarly communication and publishing that
facilitate international cooperation and dissemination of humanities
scholarship; and
* developing models for effectively managing digital data generated in
humanities research projects (for example, texts, audio files, photographs,
3D objects) and exemplifying those models in case studies.

Collaboration between U.S. and German partners is a key requirement for
this grant category. Each application must be sponsored by at least one
eligible German individual or institution, and at least one U.S.
institution, and there must be a project director from each country. The
partners will collaborate to write a single application package.  The
application deadline is September 25, 2014 for projects that would begin in
May 2015.

Program questions from applicants in the United States should be directed
to Jason Rhody in NEH’s Office of Digital Humanities at jrhody at neh.gov.

Program questions from German applicants should be directed to Christoph
Kümmel at DFG at christoph.kuemmel at dfg.de.
