Job: Postdoctoral Research Officer – TEXTCOURT, Oxford

From the ad:

This is an opportunity to join the small team working on the ERC-funded ‘TEXTCOURT’ project. Court theatre was a core part of Chinese court and performance culture for centuries, yet its texts have never been fully studied; this project will build the first digital archive of court drama scripts and related foreign records.

Reporting to Professor Tian Yuan Tan, you will be responsible for helping to establish the project’s digital archive, organising a workshop, and co-editing the resulting book volume. You will also provide guidance to other members of the team. You will manage your own academic research and administrative activities, preparing and refining theories, adapting and developing research methodologies, and analysing data from a variety of sources. As well as contributing ideas for activities linked to the project and for future research projects and future funding applications, you will be a source of information and advice to other team members on theoretical, methodological, and technical aspects of digital humanities.
