DigiPal Developer Job Vacancy

A new vacancy has come up on the DigiPal team. Our developer, Stephan Hügel, has received a fully funded PhD studentship and so is no longer available to work on the project. We are delighted to see Stephan go on to such a good position, although we are also very sorry that he is leaving us and, of course, appreciate all that he has done. As a result, we are now looking to appoint a replacement.

The position is for 18 months but is otherwise essentially unchanged from before, so do have a look at my earlier blog post on 'Further Details about the Vacancy'. In short, we're looking for a motivated developer with Python (ideally Django) and relational database skills, preferably also with knowledge of JavaScript/JQuery and AJAX and an interest in interface design, data modelling and medieval manuscripts. You will be working closely with the existing DigiPal team as the principal developer and will be responsible for most of the development work in practice.

The appointment is for 100% (full time) and you will be based in the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London but dedicated to the DigiPal project alone (for which see these pages, particularly the About section and the Outcomes page). Applications close on 1 January 2013, with interviews planned for soon after that. We are looking for an immediate start, though of course we understand that you may have other commitments. As mentioned, the formal contract is 18 months, but an extension to 30 September 2014 is very likely in practice.

Full details of the appointment are available from the King’s Vacancies page. For further questions or informal discussion do please get in touch with me directly.

I look forward to receiving your application!
