        Subject: deadline extended to 1 August for digital arts and humanitiesfellowships in Cork

University College Cork invites applications for 5 four-year 12,000 EUR
doctoral studentships on selected topics with the structured PhD programme
in Digital Arts and Humanities (DAH). Successful candidates will be
registered with the full-time inter-disciplinary structured PhD programme
co-ordinated with an all-Irish university consortium. Candidates will
pursue their individual research agendas within the program, related to
specific project areas, for which they will develop proposals which they
provide during the application process.

Subject areas:

Currently fellowships are available in History, English and Music. See
http://www.ucc.ie/en/cacsss/grads/grep/dah/ for specifics. While
applications are open for any project, funding is available for projects
related to the following collections within the university library:

What is DAH?

The ever-evolving developments in computing and their performative and
analytical implications have brought about a quantum leap in arts and
humanities research and practice. Digital Arts and Humanities is a field of
study, research, teaching, and invention at the intersection of computing
and information management with the arts and humanities.

The DAH Structured PhD programme will create the research platform, the
structures, partnerships and innovation models by which fourth-level
researchers can engage with a wide range of stakeholders in order to
contribute to the developing digital arts and humanities community
world-wide, as participants and as leaders.

Programme Structure

Candidates will complete core, training and career development modules,
including main modules shared across the consortium and others
institutionally-based. The overall aim of the taught modules are threefold:
1) to introduce students to the history and theoretical issues in digital
arts/humanities; 2) to provide the skills needed to apply advanced
computational and information management paradigms to humanities/arts
research; 3) to provide an enabling framework for students to develop
generic and transferable skills to carry out their final research

Year 1 of the four-year programme includes core and optional graduate
education modules delivered in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Maynooth. These
modules provide a grounding in essential research skills and transferable
skills together with access to specialist topics. In years 2 and 3 work on
PhD research projects is supplemented with access to elective modules. Year
3 features practical placements in industry, academic research environments
or cultural institutions.

University College Cork has a strong track record in Digital Humanities and
has been a pioneer in the development of digital tools for language study
and historiography. The College of Arts (CACSSS) has particular strengths
in European and Irish history, Renaissance Studies, English language and
literature, Music and musicology, among others.

        Subject: Post-doctoral fellowship with The Map of Early Modern London

The Map of Early Modern London (MoEML) project invites applications for a post-doctoral fellowship valued at $32,500 per year for up to two years. The successful applicant will be expected to join the project on site in Victoria, BC, and work closely with the project director, developers, and research assistants in the next phase of MoEML's development. He or she will take a leading role in the ongoing identification of all the features of the Agas Map (Civitas Londinum); textual and critical work on the map; ongoing work on the encyclopedia of early modern streets and sites; and the editing, markup, annotation, and creation of a critical apparatus for a versioned edition of the 1598, 1603,1633, and modern texts of John Stow's A Survey of London.  The successful applicant will also be encouraged to work on related projects, to bring his or her particular research interests to MoEML, and to help shape MoEML's future.  Applicants need to have a strong background in the literature of early modern London, preferably in textual criticism, drama, chronicle histories, civic literature, pageantry, and/or the geohumanities. Facility with literary computing and some knowledge of TEI are essential. Experience with editing, historical or literary GIS, and databases is desirable.

MoEML is an established project with SSHRC funding and ongoing technical support from the Humanities Computing and Media Centre at the University of Victoria.  MoEML is directed by Janelle Jenstad (Department of English, University of Victoria), and overseen by advisory and editorial boards. The summary from MoEML's SSHRC Insight Grant can be found at mapoflondon.uvic.ca/SSHRC2012.htm http://mapoflondon.uvic.ca/SSHRC2012.htm .

The University of Victoria is committed to providing an environment that protects and promotes the human rights of all persons and and affirms the dignity of all persons.  MoEML is committed to honouring the Collaborators' Bill of Rights<http://mediacommons.futureofthebook.org/mcpress/offthetracks/part-one-models-for-collaboration-career-paths-acquiring-institutional-support-and-transformation-in-the-field/a-collaboration/collaborators%E2%80%99-bill-of-rights/>.

Enquiries and applications may be sent to MoEML via Janelle Jenstad at jenstad at uvic.ca<mailto:jenstad at uvic.ca>.
