Postdoctoral Associate positions
Yale University Library

The Digital Humanities Lab at Yale University Library invites applications for two 12-month Postdoctoral Associate positions for the 2016-2017 academic year.  The DHLab seeks energetic and creative applicants who demonstrate innovative thinking and a proactive approach to the questions that digital humanities methods, approaches, tools, and theories raise in their academic disciplines.

The focus of these 12-month positions is 50% on a research project defined by the applicant in consultation with a Yale faculty member and 50% on the development and growth of the DHLab. We seek candidates who will be active participants in the intellectual life of both the relevant academic department and also the DHLab.

These positions’ primary reporting relationship will be to the sponsoring Yale faculty member; the Director of the Digital Humanities Lab will coordinate their integration into the DHLab. Yale University Library will provide dedicated working space in the new DHLab in Sterling Memorial Library, a budget for computing equipment, and the opportunity to collaborate with technical staff, including a Developer and UX Designer.

For more information, please visit our website<http://web.library.yale.edu/dhlab/postdoctoralassociates> or email: <dhlab at yale.edu<mailto:dhlab at yale.edu>>.

Deadline is February 1, 5pm Eastern Time.

        Subject: Reminder: PostDoc job "Digital Editions" (DiXiT Experienced Researcher at University of Graz)

Reminder for the Job Offering (deadline: *Jan. 29th, 2016*)

Experienced Researcher/PostDoc: 
"Canonical reference & sustainability of digital editions"

(40 hours/week; fixed-term employment for the period of 12 months, starting
1 April 2016)

The Centre for Information Modeling – Austrian Centre for Digital
Humanities at the University of Graz has rich experience in DH research
and teaching and is involved in a variety of (inter)national projects.
The main research area of the ZIM-ACDH is digital edition as a

research data from the humanities and cultural heritage domains.

* Job Specifications*

    - The research fellow will do supervised research on “Canonical
    reference & sustainability of digital editions” in the Marie Curie
    Training Network “DiXiT”.
    - It is crucial that digital scholarly editions are stable reference
    texts that embed in themselves established canonical reference
systems and
    persistent identifiers (PIDs). The relationship between well-established
    reference systems and technical PID systems will be explored in order to
    contribute to a common resolving infrastructure.
    - The candidate will conduct theoretical research on canonical reference
    and human naming systems and their inherent logics, develop a
proposal for
    a generic referencing system for digital editions and implement this
    in the Graz FEDORA-Commons-Infrastructure GAMS (
    http://gams.uni-graz.at/doku) as a proof of concept.

* Professional Qualifications*

    - Relevant doctoral university degree (or research experience of at
    least four years), preferably in the Humanities.
    - Prior experience with scholarly editing and canonical reference
    - Ability to present the subject in English (spoken and written).
    - High level of commitment and motivation for scientific work and
    international collaboration.

This position is funded through the Digital Scholarly Editions Initial
Training Network (DiXiT). To download the mandatory Application Form, visit

    experience of at least four years) and have less than five years of
    full-time equivalent research experience.
    - must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work,
    studies, etc.) in the country of their host organization (i.e.
Austria) for
    more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to recruitment.
    - must be willing to spend a time period of up to 2 months of their
    tenure at one of the DiXiT partner institutions.
