Job: University of Helsinki Seeking Three Postdoctoral Researchers in Digital Humanities

The Faculty of Arts at the University of Helsinki invites applications for three postdoctoral researchers (Digital Humanities)

These positions are for a fixed term period from September 1, 2017 (or as agreed) for a maximum of three years. The period (1-3 years) depends of the candidate’s research plan.

They are looking for candidates with expertise on computational science, linguistics and history/cultural heritage. The three successful candidates will be members of a research community that already includes, for example, Academy of Finland’s project on “Computational History and the Transformation of Public Discourse”, 2015-2019. The data that the research community is using includes various historical full-text collections and large metadata collections, mainly in English, Finnish, and Swedish. The group is particularly interested in studying conceptual change, intertextuality based on text-reuse and statistical analysis of knowledge production.

For more information, see their website. Deadline for the application period is July 9, 2017.
