        Subject: Engineer Position in Bordeaux (Papyrii, Inscriptions, etc.) for the project PATRIMONIVM

The European funding scheme ERC Starting Grant rewards the most innovative
research projects led by young researchers in all scientific areas. Among
those selected for funding in the 2016 call, the project PATRIMONIVM, hosted
by the University Bordeaux Montaigne, aims at realizing the first global
study of the economic, social and political role of the properties of Roman
emperors using a complete documentary base of all relevant sources. The
project lasts 5 years and will involve 9 historians and a web engineer
responsible of the database. The documentary system of PATRIMONIVM is one of
the most ambitious features of the project, not only because of the number
and the variety of the data (epigraphic, papyrological and literary sources,
prosopographical data, archaeological descriptions, images, georeferenced
data, bibliographic references), but also because of the implementation of
the latest XML standards for the digital presentation of ancient sources.
These features make PATRIMONIVM one of the leading digital humanities
projects at international level.

The engineer responsible for the documentary system is one of the most
important members PATRIMONIVM’s research team. She/he will work in close
coordination with the Principal Investigator and collaborate with the other
team members. She/he will participate to the scientific programme of the
project and contribute to the visibility to the project thanks to her/his
participation to conferences and workshops on the digital humanities in
France and abroad. She/he will be part of the project for its entire
duration: full time during the first three years, part time for the
remaining months.

Five College Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Digital Humanities and Blended Learning

The Five College Consortium, with generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in Digital Humanities and Blended Learning beginning in the academic year 2017-18. The term of the fellowship is for one year with possibility of renewal for a second year. The position will be based at one of the consortium's associated institutions (Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, and Smith colleges and the University of Massachusetts Amherst). The fellow will be paired with research and teaching mentors in closely related fields and will be an active participant in ongoing projects engaging faculty members across the campuses who are bringing digital approaches and materials to bear on teaching and student research in the humanities or humanistic social sciences through blended approaches. A home campus and department(s) will be assigned based on the fellow’s field and focus.

We seek candidates whose research and teaching in a humanistic discipline centers on theoretical, methodological, and technical encounters with digital technologies, while also demonstrating commitment to meeting the equity and inclusion challenges and opportunities attached to the implementation of digital humanities technologies. We seek candidates who have working familiarity with at least two of the following:

  *   geographic information systems;
  *   hardware or software used for spatial humanities work, including VR/AR;
  *   humanities data visualization, or narrative or arts approaches to working with computational data, including social media data;
  *   video game studies;
  *   feminist or intersectional approaches to computing;
  *   text-mining or other modes of computational approaches to interpretation;
  *   developing and implementing minimal computing pathways;
  *   hardware / software studies; and
  *   new or experimental modes of presenting humanities work in electronic formats, including digital storytelling and game design.

In addition to pursuing an independent research program, the successful candidate will teach two undergraduate courses each year, one of which is a new blended course (utilizing both in class and online components).  The course, planned for development through next year, will meet needs for an introductory class in digital humanities methodologies.
This postdoctoral fellowship is a full-time academic year salaried appointment ($55,000) with excellent benefits and $5,000 in research and travel support. It is open only to recent Ph.D. recipients, those who have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. before September 2017 (preference will be given to those completing by May 2017) and no earlier than April 2014.
Review of applications will begin March 15, 2017, and continue until the position is filled. To apply, go to https://apply.interfolio.com/40756
