Research Associate

The Media Studies Program at the University of Virginia seeks a
research associate (post-doctorate position) for its Applied Research
in Patacriticism tools development group. The project is engaged in
developing software that maps the phonetic structure of English
language texts, especially poetical texts. The software (called
) is already well developed as a tool for comparing and collating
equivalent texts. The project is to move in a further direction
using the phonetic resources of either the online OED or Wordnet, or
possibly some similar resource. A Ph.D., preferably in linguistics
and/or computer science, is required. The ideal candidate will have
a familiarity with English language and literature.

The Research Associate will be working with java programmers and
visual design specialists. Together they will design and build the
software that will define the phonetic units of a text, distinguish
significant phonetic patterns, and map the relations between the
patterns that are exposed.

Desirable start date is January 10, 2007. Send application letter,
resume, and the names (and contact information) of three references
to: Jerome McGann, University of Virginia, PO Box 400121,
Charlottesville, VA 22904-4121 (or by e-mail
to: jjm2f_at_virginia.edu). Review of applications will begin on August
15, 2006 and will continue until the position is filled.

The University of Virginia is an equal opportunity/affirmative action
employer. A demonstrated commitment to issues of diversity in
pedagogy and scholarship is integral to the vision of the Media
Studies Program. Therefore the search committee particularly welcomes
applications from women, ethnic minorities, and other underrepresented groups.
