Dear members of Humanist,
Following is one I couldn't let get away -- not only for its timeliness
to someone out there but also for what it indicates and promises.
Soon back to normal service, I promise.

Applications are invited for a three-year fully funded doctoral
fellowhip from students wishing to pursue doctoral studies in the
history of science, history of mathematics, digital humanities, or
The successful candidate’s PhD thesis will involve the scholarly study
of correspondence networks from the perspective of both the history of
sciences and the digital humanities. In particular, the student should
consider how to structure a corpus made up of networks of
interconnected correspondence data; the new research questions for the
history of science that arise from such a corpus; the methodologies
that can be put in place to answer these questions; and the extent to
which the development of suitable digital analysis and research tools
might contribute to the exploration of this type of corpus.
The doctoral fellowship is part of a scientific collaboration between
the Faculty of Science and Engineering of Sorbonne University and the
Faculty of History of the University of Oxford. The candidate will
work in the Digital Humanities team at the Institut des sciences du
calcul et des données (ISCD) of Sorbonne University (Paris, France)
and will carry out a period of research at the University of Oxford
(UK) within the framework of the Cultures of Knowledge research
project/Early Modern Letters Online [EMLO]. An association either with
Oxford’s Centre for the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology
or with the Mathematical Institute is possible during the stay.
The doctoral fellow will benefit from a three-year funding by the
Faculty of Science and Engineering of Sorbonne University. The
candidate must have a strong background in digital humanities, history
of science, mathematics, or computer sciences. Competences in at least
two of these fields will be particularly appreciated.
To apply, please send your cv. and a description of your research
project to: alexandre.guilbaud at sorbonne-universite.fr. You may also
contact Alexandre at this address informally for further information
regarding the fellowship.
