EMiC Postdoctoral Fellowship

January 22, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

The Editing Modernism in Canada (EMiC) project, funded by a Strategic Knowledge Cluster grant (2008-15) from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, invites applications to its 2010 competition for a postdoctoral fellowship. Our current EMiC postdoctoral fellow, Meagan Timney, is working under the supervision of Ray Siemens at the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab at the University of Victoria, and in collaboration with Martin Holmes at UVic’s Humanities Computing and Media Centre, on the development of the Image Markup Tool and publication engine for the production of the project’s digital editions and archives.

EMiC offers two-year postdoctoral fellowships valued at $31,500 per year to PhD students in the final year of their program and recent graduates who are engaged in research relevant to the project’s mandate: to produce critically edited texts by modernist Canadian authors. The awards are tenable at any of the EMiC partner universities and are supervised by, or undertaken in collaboration with, co-applicants or collaborators.

Although preference will be given to research projects most directly relevant to the task of producing critically edited texts by modernist Canadian authors, these awards are open to recently graduated postdoctoral scholars engaged in research projects relevant to one or more of the three components of this project: literary modernism, scholarly editing, and the digital humanities.

Applicants must not hold a tenure or tenure-track position or other full-time employment. Fellows are expected to engage in full-time postdoctoral research during the term of the award.

Preference will be given to recent graduates, that is, to graduates applying within five years of receiving their doctoral degree.

The awards are not renewable beyond the second year.

EMiC will provide an allocation of $31,500 per year to the partner universities at which successful applicants propose to engage in their research. EMiC co-applicants or collaborators will be responsible for ensuring that those funds are administered in keeping with the guidelines established by their respective universities. In a sponsorship letter the postdoctoral supervisor should clearly indicate the university’s willingness to host the EMiC postdoctoral fellow and the arrangements made regarding office space, library access, supplies and teaching that will be made available.

Applications must be submitted via the online form available at the project website: http://editingmodernism.ca/postdoc_funding.html

Application deadline: 1 March 2010
