Subject: Postdoc position, modeling of historiographical uncertainty (University of Lausanne) (74)  From: Stefania Milan Subject: PhD opportunity (Media Studies, University of Amsterdam) (54) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: 2019-12-11 21:44:42+00:00 From: Michael Piotrowski Subject: Postdoc position, modeling of historiographical uncertainty (University of Lausanne) Dear Colleagues, I am looking for a postdoc to work with me on the project “An Agile Approach Towards Computational Modeling of Historiographical Uncertainty” at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland. For the full posting and to apply, please go to (https://career5.successfactors.eu/career?career%5fns=job%5flisting&company=univ ersitdP&career_job_req_id=15204) Please forward this announcement to others who may be interested, in particular historians who do not consider themselves to be “digital” but who are interested in methodology and theory of history. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Best regards, Michael Job information Expected start date in position: February 1st, 2020 or March 1st, 2020 Contract length: One year or 11 months respectively, not renewable Activity rate: 90% Workplace: Lausanne-Dorigny Deadline for applications: January 6, 2020 Your responsibilities The successful candidate will work on the Spark project “An Agile Approach Towards Computational Modeling of Historiographical Uncertainty” funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF, http://p3.snf.ch/project-190306). The project aims to develop a taxonomy of historiographical uncertainty, which can serve as a basis for a computational formalization in a follow-up project. Your main tasks would be: - To develop of an analytical framework for historical narratives in collaboration with the PI. - To define a historiographical case study that has a “high density” of uncertainty (typically indicated by ongoing historical controversies); the exact field of the case study is for you to propose. - To apply the analytical case study for the detailed analysis of the case study. In particular, the project aims to (1) identify uncertainty, (2) analyze the locus of uncertainty in the narrative (which entities or relations are concerned?), and (3) examine its historiographical handling (e.g., what arguments or evidence are presented to support or refute a particular interpretation?). - To develop a semi-formal taxonomy of historiographical uncertainty based on the insights produced by the case study, and to document the project. - To contribute to the development of a follow-up project (for submission to the SNSF). Your qualifications - PhD in digital humanities with a historical orientation or PhD in a historical discipline. - Marked interest in methodology, historiography, and theory of history. - Interest in digital humanities, modeling, and interdisciplinary research. - Self-motivated and able to work independently; willing to collaborate in a multilingual environment. - Excellent spoken and written English. A working knowledge of French is not necessary but would be useful; knowledge of German would be an advantage. -- Prof. Dr.-Ing.

Do you want to be part of a cutting-edge international network and receive interdisciplinary training in Norway, Spain, Germany, the UK, ect? I am looking for a smart PhD student to work with me in the project “Apps for learning. A software study analysis of mobile applications for language development in children”, to start in June 2020 (you can be in the process of finishing your MA thesis). You will be part of a Marie Curie Innovative Training Network, with other 13 PhD students in fields as diverse as psychology, robotics, engineering, linguistics. You will receive training in the partner universities. You will work with companies (Sponge UK, etc)and social robots, and contribute to help atypical children (e.g., with autism, Down syndrome…) to improve their language skills. To know more visit https://www.ntnu.edu/e-ladda/recruitment (look for the ESR13 project, which concerns the University of Amsterdam). Please note: as per eligibility rules, prospective PhD students must be "at the time of recruitment by the host, in the first four years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers. This is measured from the date when they obtained the degree which formally entitles them to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the research training is provided, irrespective of whether or not a doctorate was envisaged.” In addition, "Researchers are required to undertake trans-national mobility (i.e. move from one country to another) when taking up the appointment. At the time of selection by the host organization, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country oftheir host organization for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment. Short stays, such as holidays, are not taken into account.” I look forward to receiving your applications! Deadline: January 24th. ****Please note I am not able to reply to any inquiry email related to this position**** Best, Stefania Stefania Milan Associate Professor of New Media and Digital Culture, University of Amsterdam |https://stefaniamilan.net Principal Investigator, DATACTIVE (ERC Starting Grant 639379) |https://data-activism.net Principal Investigator, ALEX (ERC Proof of Concept 825974) |https://algorithms.exposed @annliffey | @data_ctive +31627875425 | +31(0)205252416 Fingerprint: 5A7B 6330 5684 FC39 3DC0 67D7 08B3 50AE 6AF5 1B63 _______________________________________________ Unsubscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted List posts to: email@example.com List info and archives at at: http://dhhumanist.org Listmember interface at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted/ Subscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/membership_form.php
