    Job Description:

    The person recruited will join the ANR CiSaMe project (Circulation of Medieval Knowledge in the 12th century) for an

    initial period of 12 months, renewable once. The project aims to re-evaluate the circulation of knowledge in the 12th

    century (law, theology, philosophy) through the implementation of a method based on digital humanities and the

    exploitation of a database constituted from the transcription of a vast corpus of manuscripts and OCRized published

    works.

    The person recruited will assist the project coordinator, Raphaël Eckert, in the first phase of the project, which consists

    of creating the database from 12th century scholarly manuscripts (in particular legal and theological). He/she will

    especially contribute to the selection and collection of the manuscripts; to the collection of information on the

    manuscripts and their history; to the transcription of the manuscripts (in particular with the help of an automated

    transcription/HTR software); to the creation of an XML/TEI database and of the tools necessary for its exploitation (with

    the assistance of a dedicated computer scientist). He/she will participate in the dissemination of the results

    (publications, conferences) and will be associated with the project coordination meetings.

    The person recruited will work within the UMR DRES of the University of Strasbourg, in the premises of the Maison

    interuniversitaire des Sciences de l'Homme d'Alsace (MISHA).

    He/she must have a mastery of medieval Latin and paleography, scientific expertise in medieval textual and intellectual

    traditions, and preferably technical expertise in digital humanities. He/she must hold a doctorate in History, Legal

    History, History of Theology or History of Philosophy (or even Philology or Classics). He/she must have worked on

    intellectual history or the history of textual traditions in the Middle Ages. He/she should have a good knowledge of

    Latin paleography and, if possible, codicology. He/she should preferably have experience in digital humanities, if

    possible in both automated transcription (HTR) and encoding (XML/TEI).

    The working and communication language can be French or English.

    Working conditions:

    The person recruited will work at the DRES premises in Strasbourg. The function cannot be carried out in teleworking

    on a principal basis.

    Some travel, financed by the CiSaMe project, is to be expected (consultation of manuscripts; libraries; meetings;

    conferences).

    The remuneration is between 2271 € and 2952 € gross, depending on the experience of the person recruited.

    Eligibility criteria

    The candidate must hold a doctorate in History, Legal History, History of Philosophy, History of Theology or even

    Philology or Classics for less than two years, in the field of intellectual history or the history of medieval textual

    traditions.

    A good knowledge of paleography is required and, if possible, of codicology.

    Skills in digital humanities (XML/TEI encoding, HTR) are highly desirable.

    A good command of medieval Latin, as well as a good command of French and/or English are required.

    Interested candidates should send to the project coordinator by email (raphael.eckertatunistra.fr) :

    - A CV in French or English

    - A letter of motivation

    Auditions will be held in late 2022 or early 2023 by videoconference.
