        From: Susan Brown <sibrown at ualberta.ca>
        Subject: postdoc at Alberta

The Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE) project and the Text 
Mining and Visualization project, funded by a Major Collaborative 
Research Initiative grant and a Standard Research Grant, respectively, 
from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), seek a 
post-doctoral fellow in Text Mining, Modelling, and Prototyping, with 
expertise in Data Modeling and Digital Humanities.

This position is based in the Department of English and Film Studies at 
the University of Alberta, in partnership with the Orlando Project and 
the Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory (CWRC). The successful 
candidate is anticipated to work closely with team members at U Alberta, 
U Toronto, Acadia U, U Saskatchewan, U Western Ontario, U Guelph, U 
Victoria, and beyond, and will be co-supervised by Text Mining and 
Visualization PI Susan Brown and INKE PI Ray Siemens.

The postdoctoral fellow will work with conceptual data models and new 
forms of knowledge expression developed or under development by INKE and 
CWRC, collaborating with INKE92s Modelling and Prototyping team and 
others, consulting with project stakeholders and potential stakeholders, 
and liaising with other INKE researchers located in North America and 
the UK.

The successful candidate will have skills and aptitudes in 
humanities-oriented research and data modelling, including training or 
demonstrated experience working with the Resource Description Framework 
and/or other conceptual modelling approaches. Organizational skills are 
essential. Interest and aptitude in research planning and management 
would be an asset, as would knowledge of data visualization tools (e.g., 
VTK, D3, or Gephi). The ability to work in concert with our existing 
team is a critical requirement.

Experience with leveraging semantic markup for text mining, 
visualization, and interoperability would be an asset. Examples of 
technologies employed in the partner projects include: XML, XSL, XSLT, 
XHTML, and TEIP5 encoding; XQuery; eXist XML databases; JavaScript; and 
Ruby on Rails. Experience in some or all of these technologies would be 
an asset, but is not a requirement. Hands-on aptitude with--as distinct 
from merely interest in--digital tools is required.

Our current team members pride themselves on a passionate interest in 
both the humanities and their computational engagement. Our ideal 
candidate is someone with similar passions who can introduce the team to 
new ideas and provide new perspectives on existing digital humanities 
issues. The salary for this position is competitive in the Canadian 
context, and is governed in part by SSHRC practices.

Applications comprising a brief cover letter, CV, and the names and 
contact information for three referees may be sent electronically to 
Susan Brown at susan/dot/brown/at/ualberta/dot/ca. The contract can 
begin as early as 1 September 2012; it is for a one-year term, with the 
possibility of renewal.

Interviews may be conducted via Skype or in person, at DH2012 (Hamburg), 
in Edmonton, or other venues as feasible. Applications will be reviewed 
until the position is filled.

NOTE: If you happen to be at DH2012 right now, feel free to ping Susan 
Brown to meet up informally to learn more of the position.
