        Subject: Digital Humanities and Ancient World postdoc positions open at the University of Helsinki


Dear colleagues,

Team 1 of The Centre of Excellence in "œAncient Near Eastern Empires" 
(ANEE) at the University of Helsinki is looking for postdocs in Digital 
Humanities and Ancient World

The Centre of Excellence in "Ancient Near Eastern Empires" (ANEE) at the 
University of Helsinki will run from 2018-2025 and is directed by Dr. 
Saana Svård. ANEE asks: How do changing imperial dynamics impact social 
group identities and lifeways over a millennium? ANEE covers the 
Neo-Assyrian, Neo-Babylonian, Persian, Hellenistic, and early Roman / 
Parthian Empires. ANEE engages with methodologically varied yet 
integrated research on the long-term processes by which social group 
identities and lifeways were negotiated.

Team 1 "œDigital Humanities Approaches" develops digital humanities 
approaches (especially social network analysis and language technology), 
using these to supplement the more traditional Assyriological 
approaches. Team 1 is looking for applicants with a solid background in 
Assyriology or a related field (preferably within the chronological 
scope of ANEE) and/or skills in Digital Humanities that can be put to 
use in relation to ANEE'™s goals. Team 1 is led by Saana Svård 
(saana.svard at helsinki.fi).
