Announcement of Digital Humanities Fellowship
at the
Stanford Humanities Center

We would appreciate if you would share this information with
colleagues who may be interested:

The Stanford Humanities Center seeks to award one Digital Humanities
fellowship for the academic year 2008-2009 to a junior or senior
scholar. Fellows are in residence at the Center during the regular
academic year (September to June) and participate in the Center's
intellectual life, sharing ideas and work in progress with a diverse
community of scholars from across the spectrum of academic fields and ranks.

The Digital Humanities fellowship online application deadline is
October 15, 2007.

The Digital Humanities Fellowship reflects the Stanford Humanities
Center's commitment to supporting new directions in humanities
research. The fellowship is intended for humanities scholars whose
research methods are critically shaped by information
technology. Projects should be oriented to producing new research
outcomes rather than focusing primarily on the creation of archives
or software. Appropriate projects will approach significant questions
in humanistic study with the aid of new research tools or
methodologies. Especially appropriate are candidates whose research
is likely to contribute to intellectual exchange among a diverse
group of scholars within the disciplines of the humanities.

Applicants normally will have received their PhD in or before
September 2005 to be eligible for 2008-2009 fellowships. Fellows
are awarded stipends of up to $60,000. In addition, a housing and
moving allowance of up to $15,000 is offered, dependent upon need.

Applications are invited for two posts for which 
funding has been secured through the 
AHRC-EPSRC-JISC Arts and Humanities E-Science 
initiative to support research on the application 
of Information Technology to ancient documents. 
Both posts are attached to a project which will 
develop a networked software system that can 
support the imaging, documentation, and 
interpretation of damaged texts from the ancient 
world, principally Greek and Latin papyri, 
inscriptions and writing tablets. The work will 
be conducted under the supervision of Professors 
Alan Bowman FBA, Sir Michael Brady FRS FREng 
(University of Oxford) and and Dr. Melissa Terras (University College London).
1. A Doctoral Studentship for a period of 4 years 
from 1 January, 2008. The studentship will be 
held in the Faculty of Classics (Sub-Faculty of 
Ancient History) and supported at the Centre for 
the Study of Ancient Documents and the Oxford 
E-Research Centre. The Studentship award covers 
both the cost of tuition fees at Home/EU rates 
and a maintenance grant. To be eligible for a 
full award, the student must have been ordinarily 
resident in the UK for a period of 3 years before the start of the award.
2. A postdoctoral Research Assistantship for a 
period of 3 years from 1 January, 2008. The post 
will be held in the Faculty of Classics 
(Sub-Faculty of Ancient History) and supported at 
the Centre for the Study of Ancient Documents and 
the Oxford E-Research Centre. The salary will be 
in the range of 26,666 - 31,840 p.a. Applicants 
must have expertise in programming and 
Informatics and an interest in the application of 
imaging technology and signal-processing to manuscripts and documents.
The deadline for receipt of applications is 21 
September 2007. Further details about both posts, 
the project, the qualifications required and the 
method of application are available from Ms 
Ghislaine Rowe, Graduate Studies Administrator,
