Research Fellowship at De Monfort University

Thomas Burg's blog .:| randgaenge |:. has a link to the announcement of a Research Fellowship at De Monfort University.

Our successful AHRC application has created an opportunity for a postdoctoral researcher for a project entitled 'Interdisciplinary applications of experimental social software to the study of narrative in digital contexts', led by Professor Sue Thomas. The post is jointly based in the Institute of Creative Technologies and the Faculty of Humanities.

You will have a major role in the survey and evaluation of collaborative social software tools and their application to people-to-people models of transdisciplinary knowledge-sharing in relation to narratives in a digital context.

You will have a PhD (or have recently submitted your doctorate) and you will probably, but not necessarily, have a first degree in a Humanities subject. You will have a proven knowledge of narrative in digital environments and experience of managing web-based collaborative tools. A substantial understanding of the technical aspects of the project, including knowledge of HTML, databases, data collection and analysis skills, are a requirement of the post.

Interviews for the post will take place on Monday 10th April with a preferred start date of 22nd May 2006

Informal enquiries can by made to Sue Thomas on [email protected] or +44(0)116 2078266

The AHRC funds postgraduate training and research in the arts and humanities. For further information please see

Closing date 17/03/2006
