The Faculty of Arts at the University of Helsinki invites applications for
THREE (3) POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHERS (DIGITAL HUMANITIES)
for a fixed term period from 1 September 2017 onwards (or as agreed) for a maximum of three years. The period (1-3 years) depends of the candidate’s research plan.
We are looking for candidates with expertise on computational science, linguistics and history/cultural heritage. The three successful candidates will be members of a research community that already includes, for example, Academy of Finland’s project on “Computational History and the Transformation of Public Discourse”, 2015-2019. The data that the research community is using includes various historical full-text collections and large metadata collections, mainly in English, Finnish and Swedish. The group is particularly interested in studying conceptual change, intertextuality based on text-reuse and statistical analysis of knowledge production.
