The ETCL (http://etcl.uvic.ca/) and the Implementing New Knowledge
Environments (INKE) project at the University of Victoria have a
number of exciting opportunities for candidates with a background in
literary and textual studies, expertise in computing, and an
understanding of the digital humanities.

ETCL team members are self-starters and self-managers who work well
both individually and collaboratively and pride themselves on a
passionate interest in the humanities and their computational
engagement. Prospective ETCL team members should share similar
passions and interests and bring new skills, new ideas, and
complementary perspectives on existing digital humanities issues.
Being organised is essential; interest and aptitude in research
planning and management are assets; and the ability to work in concert
with our existing team is a critical requirement.

Most positions can be taken up as postdoctoral fellow,
alternative-academic, or developer. Salary for these positions is
competitive in the Canadian academic context, and is governed in part
by source-funder regulations; in some cases, a salary supplement for
additional teaching duties may be available.

contact information for three referees may be sent electronically to
