        Subject: Postdoctoral and Visiting Postdoctoral Fellowships in Digital Textual Studies 

The Electronic Textual Cultures Laboratory (ETCL; http://etcl.uvic.ca<http://etcl.uvic.ca/>) at the University of Victoria is seeking full-time and visiting postdoctoral fellows in Digital Textual Studies, working in areas that bridge computation, digital humanities, and textual studies.

Fellows will join our existing team of postdoctoral fellows, research assistants, research partners, and developers.  Our team works on projects such as Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE; http://inke.ca<http://inke.ca/>), the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (http://dhsi.org<http://dhsi.org/>), and beyond.  Current ETCL team members pride themselves on a passionate interest in both the humanities and their digital engagement.  Ideal candidates may come from a number of pertinent disciplinary backgrounds, but will share similar enthusiasm as well as be able to introduce the team to new ideas and new perspectives.

Successful candidates will have skills and aptitudes in humanities-oriented research, specifically textual studies, including training or demonstrated experience working with a variety of digital humanities resources such as digital archives, scholarly editions, journals and monographs, and text analysis and visualization tools.  Organizational skills are essential. Interest and aptitude in research planning and management would be an asset. The ability to work in concert with our existing team is a critical requirement.

Postdoctoral Fellowships (2012-13) include salary that is competitive in the Canadian context, governed in part by SSHRC practices.  Positions are available as early as October 2012, for a one-year term with the possibility of renewal.

Visiting Postdoctoral Fellowships (2012-) are available to those already holding external fellowships and positions in 2012-13 and 2013-14 with aligned programs of research, may be assumed for an academic term or longer, and include an honorarium.

Applications comprising a brief cover letter, CV, and the names and contact information for three referees may be sent electronically to Daniel Sondheim, ETCL Coordinator, at etcl /at/uvic/dot/ca.

Interviews may be conducted via Skype or in person, in Victoria or other venues as feasible.  Review of applications begins 15 October and will continue until positions are filled.
