Posting: Postdoctoral Fellow in Early Modern Textual Studies and Digital 
Humanities (2010-11)

The Electronic Textual Cultures Laboratory  (ETCL <http://etcl.uvic.ca/> 
) at the University of Victoria has an exciting postdoctoral opportunity 
for a candidate with a background in early modern literary and textual 
studies, expertise in computing, and an interest in the digital 
humanities field.

The postdoctoral fellow will be key in the development of a professional 
reading environment designed to respond to the needs of those working 
with early modern books and manuscripts. Source material for this work 
will be derived from our work on the Devonshire Manuscript (BL Add MS 
17,492) and our ongoing work with professional reading environments in 
number of related projects.

The successful candidate will have skills and aptitudes in early modern 
research, textual studies, and scholarly editing in a digital humanities 
context, including training or demonstrated experience working with TEI 
XML and digital editions. 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.

Examples of technologies employed in related ETCL projects are as 
follows: TEI P5; XML, XSLT, XSL and XHTML encoding; XQuery; eXist XML 
databases; JavaScript; Ruby on Rails; PHP; CSS; and web-based SQL 
database projects using PostgresSQL and mySQL. Experience in some or all 
of these areas would be an asset, but is not a requirement, though 
aptitude with digital tools is required.

Our current team members pride themselves on a passionate interest in 
both the humanities and their computation engagement. Our ideal 
candidate is someone with similar passions who can introduce the team to 
new ideas and provide new perspectives on existing digital humanities 
issues.

Salary for this position is competitive in the Canadian context, and is 
governed in part by SSHRC practices; combined with an optional 
supplement for teaching, the annual salary for this position is expected 
to be approximately $52,000.

Applications, comprising a brief cover letter, CV, and the names and 
contact information for three referees, may be sent electronically to
