Digital Humanities and Ancient World postdoc positions open at the University of Helsinki

Jouni Tuominen
Dear colleagues,

Team 1 of The Centre of Excellence in “Ancient Near Eastern Empires”
(ANEE) at the University of Helsinki is looking for postdocs in Digital
Humanities and Ancient World

The Centre of Excellence in “Ancient Near Eastern Empires” (ANEE) at the
University of Helsinki will run from 2018-2025 and is directed by Dr.
Saana Svärd. ANEE asks: How do changing imperial dynamics impact social
group identities and lifeways over a millennium? ANEE covers the
Neo-Assyrian, Neo-Babylonian, Persian, Hellenistic, and early Roman /
Parthian Empires. ANEE engages with methodologically varied yet
integrated research on the long-term processes by which social group
identities and lifeways were negotiated.

Team 1 “Digital Humanities Approaches” develops digital humanities
approaches (especially social network analysis and language technology),
using these to supplement the more traditional Assyriological
approaches. Team 1 is looking for applicants with a solid background in
Assyriology or a related field (preferably within the chronological
scope of ANEE) and/or skills in Digital Humanities that can be put to
use in relation to ANEE’s goals. Team 1 is led by Saana Svärd
([hidden email]).
