        Subject: 2-year Computational Literary Studies post at Trinity College Dublin

The Trinity College Centre for Digital Humanities is recruiting a 2-year post-
doctoral fellow with expertise in computational literary studies to join its
growing and diverse team. The purpose of this post is to support the development
of the LI4AI project, through the delivery of collaborative research in the
field of computational literary studies (70%), and teaching backfill for the
project PI (30%).

LI4AI is a proposal-stage research project that will use literary evidence to
develop a model upon which key competencies related to positive liberty –
agency, autonomy, competency, transgression, creativity, trust and empathy – can
be specified and made actionable within a software environment. As such, it will
apply an urgently needed applied humanities approach to the challenge of AI
development and regulation in light of the necessary pivot toward humane
technology development and deployment.

LI4AI is led by Trinity College Dublin’s Professor Jennifer Edmond, Co-Director
of the Trinity Centre for Digital Humanities. The appointee will be based in the
Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute and will work
closely with Professor Edmond and the DH@TCD Team, also based in the Trinity
Long Room Hub.

Closing date for applications is 9th July 2021.

Dr Jennifer Edmond
Associate Professor of Digital Humanities
Trinity College Dublin
Dublin 2 Ireland
