Vacancy: Palaeography and Digital Scholarly Editions, Early Stage Researcher

I noted in a previous post that twelve positions in digital scholarly editions are now available, including one in palaeography in the University of Graz with Dr Georg Vogeler. Further information about that specific position is now available from a flier on the DiXiT website. Please remember once again that this is independent of the DigiPal project, so please do not contact us but contact Dr Vogeler instead. However, the successful applicant will spend 8–12 months with us here at the Department of Digital Humanities in King's College London.

The full announcement is reproduced here:
