    Here is a job posting (as listed on the MLA job web site).

    Post-doctoral Fellow

    The Perseus Digital Library Project at Tufts University is seeking a
    full-time Post-doctoral Fellow with a strong background in either early
    modern English or eighteenth and nineteenth-century London. The successful
    candidate will participate in a multi-disciplinary research project
    exploring innovative ways of structuring traditional source materials for
    electronic publication. Strong technical skills are required: a working
    knowledge of UNIX/LINUX is preferred, but applicant should be familiar with
    multiple operating systems; programming skills are preferred, but the
    applicant must be willing to learn these skills on the job. The researcher
    must be committed to using technology to bridge the gap between teaching
    and research and to exploiting media such as the Web to reach beyond
    academia. Duties will include structuring data, developing curricula for
    NEH-sponsored teacher workshops, and presenting the results of such work in
    papers and presentations. Position begins July 1, 2000 and continues for
    two years. This position is full-time and includes benefits. Tufts is an
    equal opportunity employer. Please send cover letter and 2 page CV with
    three references to: Lisa M. Cerrato Managing Editor Perseus Project Tufts
