Post-doc Assistant, Wien


The Digital Humanities group within the Institute for History at the University of Vienna is seeking a post-doctoral assistant. This is a full-time position, to start in February 2022 and limited to six years; it includes independent teaching responsibilities of up to 4 SWS (~two classes per semester).

Our group has a strong profile in digital methods for historical research, and a particular emphasis on the medieval period in a variety of different regions; current projects within the group include a study of ethical issues around use of linked open data in GLAM institutions, a digital prosopography of medieval Georgia, a new edition of the Peterborough Chronicle, continuing work on the Armenian-language Chronicle of Matthew of Edessa, and most recently an ERC-funded project, RELEVEN, that focuses on the eastern and northern parts of the Christian world in the eleventh century and how we can manage the historical data generated from our sources for this period.

We welcome applications from anyone who has completed their doctorate (or will have the diploma in hand before February), and who combines digital methods with the (worldwide) medieval era in their research. For more details about the job and how to apply, please visit
