Ph.D. position, Digital Humanities / Armenian Studies

Digital Humanities at the University of Bern invites applications for a three-year, fixed-term doctoral position in the field of digital philology or Armenian studies. The aim of the project, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, is to create a digital platform for the edition, analysis, annotation, and presentation of a medieval historical text and to present in this way the twelfth-century Armenian-language Chronicle of Matthew of Edessa. The goals of the project are both to produce a critical edition and translation of a historical text, and to push the boundaries of digital methodology for how critical scholarly text is represented and modelled in a computer environment. The role of the Ph.D. student in this project will depend on his or her background; either a specialist in Armenian studies or a specialist in Digital Humanities would be appropriate.

Deadline for application is May 2015.
