Perseus Project, Tufts University, Medford MA

The Perseus Project seeks candidates for two two year positions for
classicists with a solid background in their field and excellent potential.
These positions require substantial work, but they are also designed to
increase the number of classicists with concrete experience in emerging
technologies. Proven expertise with computing and a background in
programming would be an advantage, but knowledge of the field, intellectual
excellence, energy and a proven aptitude for learning are crucial.

1) Assistant Editor for Electronic Publications: This position will work
with a consortium of classicists who are developing new editorial standards
and examplary new publications designed to match the rigor of print but
also to exploit the new possibilities of the medium. This position will
work with classicists, helping them redesign their publications both in
regards to content and to form: the candidate should be prepared to master
technologies such as SGML or VRML. A background in archaeology and an
interest in appropriate technologies would be particularly useful.

2) Assistant Editor for Greek Language and Lexicography: This position
will both help convert print resources (e.g., grammars, commentaries,
articles, lexica) into electronic documents and help develop new articles
about Greek language. An advanced graduate student interested in doing a
dissertation on a topic of general interest (e.g., the language of tragedy)
could develop a project that was also relevant to this position.

Candidates should send a letter of application, a curriculum vitae and
three letters of recommendation to Gregory Crane, Editor in Chief, Perseus
Project, Eaton 124, Tufts University, Medford MA 02155. Review of
applications will begin December 8.
