"You will have a PhD in Literature or History concentrating on the eighteenth and/or nineteenth centuries. Direct experience with eighteenth- and/or nineteenth-century manuscripts is desirable, as are publications on or in a field related to eighteenth- and/or nineteenth-century literature and/or science. Previous editorial experience, particularly previous work on a scholarly edition, would be an advantage as would previous experience on a Digital Humanities project especially one that has applied TEI (Text Encoding Initative) Guidelines. While experience with TEI would be an advantage, full training will be given in the role. There is a specific focus on contexts of slavery and colonialism in one part of the project, as well as more general links to the fields of literature and science and the history of science in the whole project. You will use social media to promote the project and find new audiences for the transcriptions."
