         Subject: Two Open Literature Positions at the University of Lethbridge

Apologies for cross-posting.

I'd like to call members of this list's attention to two vacancies at
the University of Lethbridge:

I believe these are quite unusual positions and they may be of great
interest to some on this list. They are probationary teaching positions
focusing entirely on English literature. The probationary period is for
two years at which point successful candidates will be given a
continuing (i.e. permanent) contract. The rank is Academic Assistant
(Instructor). The positions are still subject to budgetary approval.

We expect the focus of the positions will be junior-level (first and
second year) literary and genre courses. Candidates with a PhD will be
eligible to teach senior level courses in their area of specialisation.
We do not anticipate any composition component (composition is handled
by a different unit), there is no research requirement, and the course
load is 3:3:1 or equivalent. We are willing to consider almost any area
of specialisation; among the areas where we could accommodate senior
level teaching is textual criticism and the History of the Book.

What we are looking for in these positions are people who are
enthusiastic and innovative post-secondary teachers. The jobs would be
particularly well suited to PhD holders who love to teach but are less
interested in maintaining an active research program. We will expect the
successful candidates to stay current with contemporary developments in
pedagogy and their discipline.

The position is open to all qualified applicants including those without
Canadian citizenship or residency although preference will be given to
Canadian citizens and permanent residents.

Application details can be found by following the link above. The
closing date is February 15th, 2007. But please feel free to contact the
chair of the department informally if you'd like to discuss the

The Department Chair is Daniel Paul O'Donnell (i.e. me).

         Subject: Analyst/programming  job at CCH, King's College London
Project Research Officer
The Centre for Computing in the Humanities, King's College London
CCH is both a department with responsibility for its own academic programme
and a research centre promoting the appropriate application of computing in
humanities research. In its latter capacity, it is looking for someone to
assist with the technical development work in research projects. The
projects cover a wide range of humanities disciplines, including medieval
studies, history, literature and linguistics, and music, and also include a
number of more general information management projects in both humanities
and the social sciences.
The successful candidate to this position would be required to analyse a
wide variety of humanities materials and to model them using XML-related
technologies; to design, write and modify programs to search, query,
retrieve and display them; and to collaborate in the creation of integrated
HTML-based interfaces to publish them.
Experience in creating and manipulating XML documents in a range of
XML-related standards and technologies (DTDs, XPath, XSLT) is essential, as
is familiarity with standards-compliant XHTML and CSS. Awareness of the Text
Encoding Initiative's guidelines and/or of emerging XML technologies (XSLT
2.0, XQuery and Schemas) is highly desirable.
Proven experience in creating dynamic XML-based applications using
technologies such as Cocoon and/or native XML databases would be a
significant advantage.
In addition you will need to have a good understanding of how research is
conducted in the humanities and social sciences and will need to be able to
work effectively as part of a team, as well as independently. The successful
candidate should have good communication skills and the ability to document
their work in clear written English.
This appointment is on the RA1A scale, currently ranging from =A320,645 to
=A330,902 per annum plus of =A32,323 London Allowance.
