  • From the ad language above: 'In addition to completing the online application, please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation to English@fau.edu with the subject line "Medieval Search."' So it sounds like LORs should be emailed rather than uploaded in the online app... if the system insists on having a "LOR" uploaded, I've heard of people handling this by uploading a brief doc that gives contact info for the ref. and notes that the full letter has been sent under separate cover by email.

  • 9/18 From an e-mail from a member of the department (forwarded to me as grad faculty at another university): "Our English department is searching for two positions: one in the long 18th century and one in medieval literature.  Both jobs are posted now and any job candidate will find the description for the long 18th century position perfectly clear  But the medieval position is oddly described.  If you read the job description, it sounds like we’re looking for a generalist, who might just have a sub-specialty in medieval literature.  But in reality that is not so.  The job is really for a medievalist.  We are searching for someone who specializes in medieval literature, and who can also teach courses in History of the English Language (this course is for our MAT students), medieval literature, ancient literature, and courses in his/her area that might also cross-list with our Women’s and Gender Studies program. In short, we are trying to get the word out to graduate programs that seem likely to send applicants our way.  We don’t want potential applicants to be put off by the ad, and we want to assure them that we seek a medievalist."
  • 9/14: Does anyone have a link to the ad on the HR site? I could not find it when I searched.
  • Position still not posted at Ithaca HR site as of 9/15, but job now posted in MLA JIL. The Interfolio link with the MLA ad suggests position will be open for applications on Sept. 19.
  • 9/18: I emailed Dr. Breen to ask about the link, and he says it should be up tomorrow or Wednesday, but the original materials requested will just be CV and cover letter, as well as the three letters of rec.

  • the posting isn't totally clear on how much facility with French is required. Is oral fluency a must? 
  • Any news? (12/8)

NOTES:

  • Is anybody else having trouble with the link on the UCLA recruitment page? I can't find the link to actually get into the application forms.
  • -- I am having the same problem. It seems like the position isn't actually open for applications yet. I emailed the tech support for their HR site, so maybe that will fix things [10/5]. Update: you can now access the application.
  • I am confused as to why the application is requiring me to upload letters of recommendation in addition to requiring contact information for references.  When my recommenders submit their letters, will the document requirement be fulfilled, or is there some other way I'm supposed to be handling this?
  • Oct 30: The answer is no, the "letters of recommendation" document requirement was not automatically fulfilled when I received my last reference just now. Surely a criteria error; I've filed a query with support.
  • I emailed for the same question and was told the recommendors should follow the "link," of which there is none.
  • Nice. If I don't hear back, I'll just assume they want a document listing my referees' contact information. At least uploading any PDF document will clear the application for submission. Update: they've now responded, saying that they've marked my file as complete. Still registers as incomplete from my end though. [posted 10/30]

This post will be fixed-term until 31 August 2021, and it is anticipated that the appointee will start on 1 February 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter. The postholder will be based in the Gibson Building, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Oxford OX2 6GG.

The project involves the creation of an interactive online edition of the 60,000 or so lines of verse, roughly half in Old English and half in Latin, that comprise the entire combined corpus of Anglo-Saxon poetry. This will be marked up through TEI P5 XML to facilitate the identification of idiosyncratic features of sound, metre, spellings, diction, syntax, formulas, themes, and genres across the corpus. The project will produce a linked series of conferences, workshops, and print publications, including monographs, conference-proceedings, and a themed issue of an academic journal. CLASP will use the full panoply of digital resources, including sound- and image-files where relevant, to make the oldest surviving poetry from Anglo-Saxon England available to a modern audience for unprecedented kinds of exploration, comprehensive analysis, and interrogation. Further details of the project are included at Appendix 1 of the Further Particulars.

The researcher, with training in Old English, will have primary responsibility for the Old English elements of the project. Throughout the project, the RA will be expected to present their research at several conferences a year, to produce articles, and to co-edit conference proceedings and other publications. They will also help to organise the seminars, workshops, and conferences, and will co-edit the conference proceedings and special journal issue.

Applicants should possess a PhD in Anglo-Saxon Literary and Linguistic Studies or a related field (the PhD must have been awarded by the time the individual takes up the post); experience of work with Anglo-Saxon texts and manuscripts, including accuracy in transcription and translation; high proficiency in Old English, especially with regard to language and metre (some acquaintance with Latin is also required); the ability to work flexibly, and in a team; a willingness to participate in the overall running of the project and public engagement activities; a high level of communication skills, including the ability to address a range of audiences; a high level of organisational skills and an ability to meet deadlines; excellent computer skills; and the capability to work independently, and across disciplinary boundaries.

Further Particulars (which all applicants must consult) are available below.

Applications should include a CV and a supporting statement explaining your suitability for the post. Candidates shortlisted for interview will be asked to submit a sample of written work (8,000 – 10,000 words) in advance of the interview, and will be requested to give a short presentation as part of the assessment process. Two references will be sought for shortlisted candidates.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 29 November 2017. Interviews are expected to be held in Oxford during week beginning 18 December 2017.

The Rossell Hope Robbins Library at the University of Rochester is pleased to invite applications for the Helen Ann Robbins Fellowship in Medieval Studies. The fellowship was endowed by Helen Ann Mins and Rossell Hope Robbins to provide a period of research at the Rossell Hope Robbins Library for a woman completing a dissertation project in medieval studies. It is open to qualified applicants in all fields of medieval studies. Past fellows have worked on medieval clothing, Jews in medieval England, the Arthurian legend, courtesy books and manners, female advice figures, manuscript unity, and translation and textual transmission.

The ability of the Robbins Library to support research in the area of the dissertation will be a factor in choosing the recipient of the fellowship. The Robbins Library has outstanding holdings in medieval English and French literature - including but not limited to Chaucer, the Middle English lyric, and medieval romance - and has considerable holdings in manuscript studies and medieval history and culture, particularly British. We support a number of important scholarly projects: the TEAMS Middle English Texts Series (General Editor, Russell Peck); the Chaucer Bibliographies (General Editor, Thomas Hahn); and The Camelot Project (General Editors, Alan Lupack and Barbara Tepa Lupack).

Eligibility: The Fellow must be an advanced graduate student (ABD) in good standing, who is engaged full-time in researching and writing the dissertation. She should have no more than one full year of dissertation work remaining at the start of the fellowship year.<

Other Full-Time Medievalist PositionsEdit

Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library (DC) - Managing Editor - POSITION FILLEDEdit

The Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library (DOML), published by Harvard University Press, launched in 2010 with the mission to offer major literary texts of medieval and Byzantine culture in literature, history, philosophy, and other realms of learning. The series has three aims: to make texts readily accessible in both content and price to a broad readership of English speakers, while also meeting the standards of experts; to equip non-specialist readers with the basic information needed to understand and appreciate the text; and to keep volumes in print for a long time. Each volume is bilingual, presenting a source text with an English translation on the facing page. General readers, undergraduate and graduate students, and professional scholars from within and without medieval and Byzantine studies are the target audience. DOML began with a focus on three languages: Byzantine Greek, Medieval Latin, and Old English. The series now numbers 49 volumes, and is poised to incorporate additional vernacular languages with a new subseries, Medieval Iberia.

Working closely with the General Editor and the Subseries Editors, and with Harvard University Press, the Managing Editor will manage all aspects of the editorial and production process: create policies and style guides for the series, issue contracts, assign and oversee translations, set and enforce timelines, prepare the annual budget, organize annual board meetings, and plan outreach for the series, including through presentations and attendance at scholarly conferences. The Managing Editor will also train and supervise Harvard graduate students and undergraduate summer interns.

Required Qualifications

Advanced degree in Medieval Studies, Byzantine Studies, Classics, or related field.
Advanced language skills in Latin or Greek are required.
Familiarity with Dropbox, Asana, Word, and Excel is required.
Candidates must have strong computer and editorial skills, together with a background in any area of the humanities with a particular specialty in Medieval Studies. Strict attention to detail, and excellent communication skills, are particularly important.

To Apply: The position remains open until filled. Please submit résumé and cover letter detailing relevant qualifications by clicking the link below.
