Deadline for applications: 1 December 2015

The Swedish School of Library and Information Science (SSLIS) at the University of BorĂ¥s, Sweden, is offering a Marie Curie funded fellowship for an Experienced Researcher in the DiXiT project (Digital Scholarly Editions Initial Training Network). The position is full-time, with a fixed-term employment for 12 months, starting March 1 2016, and located at SSLIS.


The study of this Experienced Researcher project aims to critically explore the range of measures and methods for establishing trustworthiness, quality parameters and authenticity of digital reproductions in libraries and archives, particularly by looking at cases where levels and measures are negotiated between such memory institutions and external agents hired to perform parts of the process.

The results of such negotiations might have significant bearing on the value of the digitized resource, and the level of post-processing work, use and re-use that can be performed with the digitized material within digital edition projects and other scholarly work. How and to what extent are these measures and methods maintained consistently throughout projects versus being renegotiated, possibly affecting the scholarly value of the digitized resource?

Formal requirements

Within DiXiT, the applicant for the position of Senior Researcher must:

  • be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience.
  • also have less than five years of full-time equivalent research experience.
  • be fluent in English.

There is also a mobility rule within the DiXiT project which means that the applicant of the position as Senior Researcher at SSLIS must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies etc) in the country of his/her host organization (Sweden) for more than 12 months in 3 years immediately prior to his/her recruitment. Short stays, such as holidays, are not taken into account.

Professional qualifications

  • Relevant doctoral degree (or at least four years of research experience, see above)
  • Prior experience with digitization, digital scholarship, scholarly editing.

Application deadline: December 1, 2015
