Postdoctoral Fellowship at MARGOT
The MARGOT Annotation Tool project (imageMAT), funded by the Andrew W.
Mellon Foundation – Scholarly Communications and Technology Program
(2011-2012), invites applications to its 2011 competition for a
postdoctoral fellowship. imageMAT offers a one-year postdoctoral
fellowship valued at $31,500 + 14% vacation pay and benefits to PhD
students in the final year of their program and recent graduates.
Applicants must have knowledge in medieval iconography and/or
literature and manuscript culture/production. Applicants must also
have solid computer skills. The postdoctoral fellow will provide
scholarly leadership and, more generally, add scholarly content to the
project site such as manuscript descriptions and blog posts. He/she
will consult on content creation, and assist the developer and McWebb
with the training of graduate students in content creation and be
responsible for site moderation.
Knowledge of French would be an asset, but is not required. The award
is tenable at the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, and is
supervised by Christine McWebb. The start date is September 1, 2011.
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 first year.
Please send a cover letter, current c.v., and the names of three
