New international postdoc and digital art fellowships available (4 positions)

Two postdoctoral positions in the digital humanities and two fellowship positions in digital art are available at HUMlab, Umeå University, Sweden from August 1, 2008 (the actual start date may be later).

The postdoctoral fellowships are for one year, with a possible extension of one year. The digital art fellowships are one-year positions. For the postdoc positions, applicants will be expected to have a Ph.D. in a humanities discipline (from a non-Swedish university) and a specialty in any of these five research areas: participatory media, digital cultural heritage, digital art and architecture, electronic literature, and critical perspectives. For the digital art fellowships, applicants will be expected to have an M.F.A or the equivalent (from a non-Swedish institute/school). In exceptional cases, other areas and backgrounds can be of interest as well.

HUMlab is an exciting place and there is a great deal going on. Fellows will normally have a double affiliation to the lab and to a suitable department/school and discipline.

Deadline for applications: June 12, 2008.
