Folger Shakespeare Library
  • The Folger Shakespeare Library seeks to appoint a postdoctoral CLIR-Folger Digital Communities Fellow, for a period of two years, beginning fall 2014. The CLIR-Folger Fellow will join a community of 50 long- and short-term residential fellows at the Folger, fully participating in the daily exchange of ideas, sources, and research strategies. Fellowship will come with opportunities to present on work-in-progress to the Folger’s scholarly community. The fellow will also work closely with colleagues at the Folger with a range of professional backgrounds, from subject and materials specialities to project administration and tool-building. The fellow will enjoy exposure to a wide variety of career paths, and training opportunities will be provided. The fellow will be integrated into the work and organizational culture of the Folger through ongoing involvement in staff meetings related to digital access and preservation. A percentage of time will be allowed (up to 25%) for the fellow to develop or extend his or her own project, ideally one that contributes to Folger data curation initiatives.
  • Duties:
  • Collaborate with Folger Digital Texts and other Folger-based textual encoding projects’ staff to develop a workshop curriculum for college teaching applications. :*Pilot workshop is planned for fall 2015.
  • With Folger staff, develop best practices and interoperability standards for multi-year Folger textual encoding projects such as the non-Shakespearean drama digital texts (F21) and the early modern manuscripts transcription project (EMMO); address and advise on compatibility issues with the many other early modern projects (supported elsewhere) also utilizing an EEBO-TCP base.
  • Collaborate with Institute staff to create and curate the scholarly workshops (digital environments) that facilitate experimentation with collections-based digital surrogates, including tagging and linking strategies and brief interpretive essays, also reflecting on the research models they foster.
  • Serve as a training liaison between the Folger staff and faculty directors of scholarly programs to integrate digital materials and methods into Institute graduate seminars, including the annual Introduction to Research Methods and Agendas seminar.
  • Tag the archive of Folger Institute “Primary Sourcebooks,” most of which derive from NEH summer institutes, and other web-based products, so that they are fully searchable through the Folger’s federated search function, expected to launch in fall 2014.
  • Contribute to ongoing Library-wide study of digital futures by participating in the pan-institutional Online Strategy Council.
  • Education: Recent Ph.D. (within 5 years) in early modern studies, English literature or history preferred, though any subject field in early modern humanities that is supported by the collections of rare materials is welcome. Work in book history, bibliography, or material culture preferred; experience with digital humanities desired.
University of California, Los Angeles
  • Postdoctoral Fellowship in Data Curation for Early Modern Studies: Readers’ Annotations and the Early Modern Book
  • The University of California, Los Angeles welcomes applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Data Curation for Early Modern Studies. Awarded by the Council on Library and Information Resources, this post is based at UCLA’s William Andrews Clark Memorial Library, which houses many unique pre-1770 rare book collections of American, English, and European sources: http://www.clarklibrary.ucla.edu. All cultural and scholarly activities at the Clark Library are administered by the Center for 17th- and 18th-Century Studies: http://www.c1718cs.ucla.edu. The fellowship also involves working closely on data curation with senior members of the UCLA library staff based on the main campus at Westwood. For information about UCLA Library policy on humanities data curation, see http://guides.library.ucla.edu/humanities_data.
  • Contract: two years. Salary: $60,000 plus benefits. Position is from 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2016.
  • The CLIR postdoctoral fellow’s research will focus on the challenges for data curation posed by the different types of readers’ annotations on early modern books. To date the guiding principle in digitizing early modern texts has been to provide “clean” copy. But where does this leave the common phenomenon of those books that readers have annotated, sometimes in painstaking detail? The Clark owns books so heavily annotated that they straddle the divide between published book and manuscript. As a consequence, our received histories of the transition between manuscript and print no long appear adequate. The annotations in many Clark volumes contain a trove of information on their circulation and consumption. How might metadata address the methodological and conceptual challenges presented by these objects, recording the level and type of annotation? How might recent work in the field of material studies/history of the book impact curatorial decisions? If, as seems likely for these texts, the study of annotation shifts the focus of understanding early modern volumes from authors to readers, how might this influence our description and cataloguing of the volumes?
  • Candidates should be recent recipients of the PhD in an appropriate humanities discipline (such as English, history, European literatures, or Classics) or in library and information science, and have demonstrated knowledge about the history of the early modern book. The appointed fellow will be provided with support from both faculty members and library staff to identify suitable sources that relate directly to the fellow’s areas of expertise.
University of Pennsylvania
  • Penn Provenance Project Fellow
  • The University of Pennsylvania Libraries seek an innovative and energetic CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow in Data Curation for Early Modern Studies to play an integral role in the working life of the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts at Penn’s Van Pelt Library, including overseeing the transition of the Penn Provenance Project (PPP) and its data to a new platform.
  • Penn Provenance Project (PPP): Through its faculty and library resources, the University of Pennsylvania has long been at the forefront of book history and material text research, especially in the early modern era. Building on this strength, the Kislak Center is actively becoming a node for provenance history research. This research is essential for understanding how texts moved through the early modern world, what kinds of books collectors and libraries of the period valued, and the nature of print and manuscript cultural production. The fellow will play a key role in developing this field through his or her research and involvement in working with book historical data at the Kislak Center through the Penn Provenance Project.
  • Penn Provenance Project Fellow responsibilities:
  • Project management: ensuring the project stays on time and others' tasks are done in a timely manner
  • Data mapping and transformation: working with colleagues to implement a data model and managing the movement of data from Flickr to a new repository
  • Bringing in new data: working with colleagues to ingest images and provenance descriptions from both Penn and partner institutions into the PPP.
  • Expanding the range of partner participants: offering guidance and instruction to the faculty, students, and library staff that will be generating new data for the project.
  • Linking data: working with colleagues and partners to ensure that PPP data is linked with other data sources in the field, such as the VIAF and CERL authority files.
  • Promoting use of the PPP: through teaching, independent research, papers, online or live presentations, workshops and/or symposia that help scholars, students, librarians, and the general public understand the significance of provenance data to Early Modern Studies.
  • Strategic development of the PPP: planning and experimenting with innovative ways of displaying and analyzing the project’s data.
  • Qualifications: The candidate will hold a PhD in an area of early modern studies, with a concentration in the history of the book. Working knowledge of at least one non-English language is preferred. Experience with prior digital projects and some knowledge of programming preferred. Prior work experience in special collections is desirable.

Middlebury College - Postdoctoral Fellow in the Digital Liberal ArtsEdit

Middlebury College invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Digital Liberal Arts, beginning July 1, 2014. This 12-month position is available for one year, with a second year contingent on funding. We welcome candidates who hold, or will hold by June 2014, a PhD in any discipline relevant to the Digital Humanities.

The Postdoctoral Fellow is a key position in a new initiative in the Digital Liberal Arts at Middlebury College. We are looking for a creative and technically skilled person to promote the use of digital technologies and resources for humanities research, teaching, and intellectual engagement. This will take the form of four connected activities: building awareness, building capacity, project support, and connecting with the larger community of Digital Humanities scholarship. The ideal candidate will have working familiarity with a variety of digital methods, extensive experience with collaborative digital scholarship, a proven record of teaching at the college or university level, and broad awareness of issues at the intersection of digital scholarship and pedagogy.  The Fellow will work closely with a team of faculty, library staff, and research and curricular technologists to help develop and support the College’s vision for incorporating digital technologies in innovative, collaborative research. While the focus of the DLA initiative is to promote collaborative projects in the humanities, the Postdoctoral Fellow will also be involved in exploring the potential for cross-fertilization across the boundaries of the humanities, social sciences, and physical and natural sciences. We particularly seek candidates with expertise in textual technologies such as text mining, text encoding, topic modelling, digital indexing, and digital publication.

Qualifications: The Postdoctoral Fellow will be in residence in the Davis Family Library, under the supervision of the faculty Director of the DLA Lab, Anne Kelly Knowles. The Fellow’s primary responsibilities will include organizing and participating in digital training workshops, consulting on faculty projects, helping develop a speakers program, and following and reporting on trends in the Digital Humanities. In recognition of the importance of creative scholarship for this position, 30 percent of the Fellow’s time will be allocated to their own research, writing, giving presentations, and related scholarly activities.

Application Instructions: Review of applications will begin April 1, 2014 and will continue until the position is filled.  Middlebury College uses Interfolio to collect all job applications electronically. Email and paper applications will not be accepted. Through Interfolio, please submit a letter of application addressed to DLA Postdoctoral Search Committee, along with a current curriculum vitae that includes all qualifications, and two letters of reference. More information about application procedures is available at https://apply.interfolio.com/24466.

NOTES:

  • This is the same job that was posted at the end of July 2013 and still has not been filled. The search committee is aware that the timing of the request for applications and the start date are out of line with the normal MLA hiring cycle. There's nothing sketchy about it; the timing is off because it's a last minute replacement hire and the university wants to fill the position as soon as possible. Please don't let the timing discourage you from applying. [posted Aug. 23, 2013]
