        Subject: Postdoctoral Researcher SNSF (Postdoc) in Digital Humanities

The Department of Language and Information Sciences of the Faculty
of Arts of the University of Lausanne is looking for an

  SNSF senior researcher (postdoc) in digital humanities.

# Job information

- Expected start date: February 1st, 2022
- Contract length: 4 years, not renewable
- Activity rate: 100%
- Workplace: Lausanne-Dorigny

Application deadline: November 15, 2021

# Your responsibilities

In the context of the SNSF project “Towards Computational
Historiographical Modeling: Corpora and Concepts” (PI : Michael
Piotrowski) we are looking for a highly motivated postdoc in
digital humanities. The project is in line with a research program
that aims to develop epistemological and methodological
foundations for digital humanities.

The focus of your work will be on the investigation of concepts as
models : How do they function and how are they used? Are there
structural similarities that would allow us to create a metamodel
for formalizing concepts? While these are general issues in
digital humanities, the project will examine them in the context
of historical research in particular. You will work together with
the PI and a PhD candidate and contribute to the project as a
whole.

# Your qualifications

- PhD in digital humanities, a historical discipline, philosophy
  of science, or equivalent (PhD in hand at the start of the
  position).
- Marked interest in epistemological questions and methodology,
  historiography, and theory of history.
- Interest in digital humanities, computational modeling, and
  interdisciplinary research.
- Self-motivated and able to work independently; willing to
  collaborate in a diverse and multilingual environment.
- Excellent spoken and written English. French language skills are
  not required, but a working knowledge of French would be useful
  (the work environment is French-speaking); knowledge of German
  would be an advantage.
