5/14/14 – Research Associate
Oxford Research Centre, University of Oxford, Oxford, England
We are seeking a Research Associate which is a technical role working on Semantic Web and Linked Data technologies that support research in Digital Humanities, specifically for the ElEPHaT and Transforming Musicology projects.
The ElEPHaT project, a joint project between the Centre and the Bodleian Digital Libraries, will use Linked Data to create worksets combining digitised content from the large-scale (11 million+ volumes) HathiTrust collection and the fully human-transcribed EEBO-TCP (Early English Books Online – Text Creation Partnership) corpus.
The University of Oxford e-Research Centre leads the creation of a semantic framework for the project which will describe these new digital methods, linking them to the results they produce and the music resources over which analysis has been undertaken, again using Semantic Web and Linked Data approaches, and tackling challenges such as reuse, reproducibility and citation of the methods and data.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 21 May 2014.
