Subject: DH postdoc at Leiden University
Deadline: June 1, 2014

The Faculty of Humanities at Leiden University invites applications for a full-time (1,0 fte) Post-doctoral Research Associate in an international digital humanities project funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (US) and JISC/ESRC/AHRC (UK) ‘Automating Data Extraction from Chinese Texts’ coordinated by Prof. Hilde De Weerdt. Appointment will be fixed-term for one year starting from July 1, 2014 or as soon as possible thereafter. Leiden University aims to employ more women in areas where they are underrepresented. Women are therefore especially invited to apply. 

The Post-doctoral Research Associate will assist in the development of MARKUS, an online Chinese text extraction and reading platform, and conduct original research in the digital humanities developing text mining techniques, textual analysis, and visualization tools.

        Subject: NEH Grant Opportunity – Humanities Collections and Reference Resources


The Division of Preservation and Access of the National Endowment for the Humanities will be accepting applications for grants in its Humanities Collections and Reference Resources program.  These grants support projects to preserve and create intellectual access to such collections as books, journals, manuscript and archival materials, maps, still and moving images, sound recordings, art, and objects of material culture.  Awards also support the creation of reference works, online resources, and research tools of major importance to the humanities.

HCRR offers two kinds of awards:

1)      Implementation Grants -- $350,000 maximum, for up to three years. Eligible activities include:

·         arranging and describing archival and manuscript collections;
·         cataloging collections of printed works, photographs, recorded sound, moving images, art, and material culture;
·         providing conservation treatment for collections, leading to enhanced access;
·         digitizing collections;
·         preserving and improving access to born-digital sources;
·         developing databases, virtual collections, or other electronic resources to codify information on a subject or to provide integrated access to selected humanities materials;
·         creating encyclopedias;
·         preparing linguistic tools, such as historical and etymological dictionaries, corpora, and reference grammars
·         developing tools for spatial analysis and representation of humanities data, such as atlases and geographic information systems (GIS); and
·         designing digital tools to facilitate use of humanities resources.
2)      HCRR Foundations Grants -- $40,000 maximum, for up to two years. To help in the formative stages of initiatives to preserve and create access to humanities collections or to produce reference resources, Foundations grants will support planning, assessment, and pilot activities that incorporate expertise from a mix of professional domains.  Drawing upon the cooperation of humanities scholars and technical specialists, these projects might encompass efforts to prepare for establishing intellectual control of collections, to develop plans and priorities for digitizing collections, to solidify collaborative frameworks and strategic plans for complex digital repositories and resources, or to produce preliminary versions of online collections or resources.

New guidelines for HCRR<http://www.neh.gov/grants/preservation/humanities-collections-and-reference-resources> have now been posted, along with sample proposal narratives, FAQs, and other resources.  The application deadline is July 17, 2014, with projects beginning May 2015. All applications to NEH must be submitted electronically through Grants.gov; see guidelines for details.

Prospective applicants seeking further information are encouraged to contact the Division at 202-606-8570 or preservation at neh.gov<mailto:preservation at neh.gov>.  Program staff will read draft proposals submitted six weeks before the deadline.  Details on the full slate of funding opportunities in Preservation and Access, along with news and features, can be found on the Division’s website http://www.neh.gov/divisions/preservation .
