We are delighted to announce that we have two developer positions 
currently open at An Foras Feasa, the Humanities Institute, at the 
National University of Ireland Maynooth. Both provide an opportunity to 
work in a growing and dynamic DH centre.

Both are associated with the development of the Digital Repository of 
Ireland (DRI) <dri.ie>. The first is a full-time Software Engineer 
position which provides an excellent opportunity for a software 
developer to work in a stimulating, challenging research environment 
using the latest leading edge Java innovations and Open Source 
technologies. The successful candidate must have the ability and 
willingness to take ownership of the project, design and progress it 
through to development, test and delivery, while working in a dynamic 
and collegial team-based environment.

The second position is a half time developer to work on one of the 
DRI's  demonstrator projects, The Letters of 1916 <lettersof1916.ie>. 
The Letters of 1916 is a high-profile, crowdsourced DH project. The 
successful candidate will take a primary role in developing an 
infrastructure for the  project, migrating content from its present form 
as a transcription desk to a digital archive, while ensuring 
compatibility with the DRI infrastructure.

Further details for both posts can be found here:

Closing dates for both appointments are 20 May. If you would like to 
speak informally about either position, please get in touch with me.

With all best wishes
