        Subject: Two new C²DH Postdoctoral Fellowships in Digital Humanities

Dear colleagues,

I'm happy to announce two postdoctoral positions at the Luxembourg
Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH). Please share widely!

Postdoctoral Fellowship in the LuxTIME Project (12 months)

Supported by the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR), LuxTIME is a
new research initiative to promote interdisciplinary collaborative
historicized research. This postdoctoral position provides an
outward-facing, high-profile opportunity for researchers to build
experience managing a large-scale research project and to gain public
exposure. Along with another postdoctoral researcher you will work
closely with the project’s principal investigator.

Actitivities will include the development and management of a national
consortium of stakeholders, research organizations, and cultural
heritage institutions; the creation and management of a mapping exercise
which will identify the state of art in Luxembourg of mass digitization
of historical data and technological and organizational solutions for
exchanging/accessing large datasets across member institutions; and
coordinating the collaborative writing of followup grant proposals with
members of the consortium.

Postdoctoral Fellowship in the DHARPA Project (24 months, with
possibility of renewal)

The Digital History Advanced Research Projects Accelerator (DHARPA)
at C²DH is looking to hire a postdoctoral researcher**as part of a
research project sponsored by the Luxembourg National Research Fund
(FNR). The postdoctoral researcher will work under the supervision of
Professor Sean Takats and join a team that currently includes two other
postdoctoral researchers, two software developers, two PhD students, and
an administrative assistant, and which collaborates with the larger C²DH
research center. In 2022 this team will continue to add members, and
with them you will help to develop a new software platform for
historical research, in coordination with your own research program.

Both fellowships are full-time positions with excellent salary and great
opportunities for professional development (e.g. conference funding,
training). Although C²DH is a digital history center, both of these
projects are multidisciplinary and include non-historians. Applications
are open now and close on 01 March 2022.

        Subject: Communications Editor, Interdisciplinary Science Reviews

The academic journal Interdisciplinary Science Reviews
( is looking for a
Communications Editor. Description of the position and application
procedure is to be found at:

In a nutshell, the job of the Communications Editor is to publicise new
and forthcoming issues and build connections with potential authors,
readers and scholarly organisations. It is a non-salaried position. it 
does, however, give an active and ambitious person the chance to be an 
integral part of a quite unusual project to discover and exemplify genuine
interdisciplinary research across the humanities, arts, social, natural
and artificial sciences. It provides an opportunity to become known, to
build contacts and to contribute to the continuing development of the

For a better idea of ISR, take a look at the last decade or so of its
issues, its Editorial Board and its Aims and Scope.
