        Subject: Opportunity for a Senior Researcher at the intersections of Digital Scholarly Editing and Big Data

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced researcher to join a 
vibrant digital humanities research centre at Maynooth University. An 
Foras Feasa seeks a experienced researcher which is funded by the Marie 
Curie funded Digital Scholarly Editions Initial Training Network (DiXIT) 
to work at the intersections of digital scholarly editions and big data.

The successful candidate will be part of the Letters of 1916 
(letters1916.ie) project team and play a key role in the next phase of 
the projectÂ’s development in migrating the project from its current 
state as a transcription desk to a digital scholarly edition that 
integrates big data approaches, including topic modelling, network 
analysis, and geo-temporal visualisations.

Experienced Researchers must (at the time of recruitment) be in 
possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time 
equivalent re search experience. At the time of recruitment an 
experienced researcher must also have less than five years of full-time 
equivalent research experience

This is a 12-month position. There is one planned secondment of three 
months at University of Antwerp to increase awareness of the complexity 
mark-up and how it may be leveraged in a dynamically structured edition. 
In addition, a mandatory DiXiT application form has to be completed. It 
can be found here: http://dixit.uni-koeln.de/fellows.html

All best
