12 Studentships/Early Career Fellowships in Digital Scholarly Editing

No fewer than twelve Marie Curie fellowships for early stage researchers are now available – including one in palaeography – as part of the new DiXiT international network on Digital Scholarly Editing. These are intended to fund people beginning PhDs in relevant topics, but others are also eligible to apply. DiXiT has no direct connection to DigiPal, but one of the twelve fellowships is specifically for study of digital methods in palaeography: the successful candidate will be supervised by Dr Georg Vogeler in Graz but will spend some time with us at the Department of Digital Humanities in King's College London where DigiPal is based.

Here is the official announcement in full:

The Digital Scholarly Editions Initial Training Network (DiXiT) offers 12 Marie Curie fellowships to early stage researchers (ESRs) for a period of 3 years and 5 Marie Curie fellowships to experienced researchers (ERs) for a period of 12 to 20 months.

Fellowships are now open for applications. For details visit http://dixit.uni-koeln.de/fellows.html

Please circulate widely!

About DiXiT

DiXiT (Digital Scholarly Editions Initial Training Network) is an international network of high-profile institutions from the public and the private sector that are actively involved in the creation and publication of digital scholarly editions.

DiXiT offers a coordinated training and research programme for early stage researchers and experienced researchers in the multi-disciplinary skills, technologies, theories, and methods of digital scholarly editing.

DiXiT is funded under Marie Curie Actions within the European Commission's 7th Framework Programme and runs from September 2013 until August 2017.

Academic Requirements

Early-Stage Researchers must be in the first 4 years of their research careers and not yet have a doctoral degree. This is measured from the date when they obtained the degree which would formally entitle them to embark on a doctorate, irrespective of whether or not a doctorate is envisaged.

Experienced Researchers must be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least 4 years of full-time equivalent research experience. At the time of recruitment by the host organisation an experienced researcher must also have less than 5 years of full-time equivalent research experience.

It should be noted that an individual researcher may not be recruited first as an ESR and subsequently as an ER in the same project.

Marie Curie ITN mobility requirement

Researchers can be of any nationality. They are required to undertake trans-national mobility (i.e. move from one country to another) when taking up their appointment. One general rule applies to the appointment of researchers:

At the time of recruitment by the host organisation, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date.

Short stays such as holidays and/or compulsory national service are not taken into account.

Application process

Please note that applications from any qualified applicants, regardless of gender, ethnicity or country of origin are welcome if they meet the eligibility requirements.

Applicants should send their applications directly to the institution hosting the desired fellowship. Applications for more than one post are welcome – however, multiple applications should be indicated via the obligatory DiXiT application form (which has to be submitted separately from the application documents send to the hosting institution).

Application deadline

The deadline for applications is the 10th December 2013.

Please note that the four remaining ER fellowships will start at a later date and the possibility of application will be announced accordingly.
