I'm forwarding information about this Post-Doc opportunity on behalf of
Janelle Jenstad. Full details are also here:

<http://mapoflondon.uvic.ca/opportunities.htm>

This is a TEI P5 / eXist db project with lots of interesting encoding
and rendering issues, and would suit anyone with the appropriate
academic background and a strong interest in TEI-based online editions.

/The Map of Early Modern London/(/MoEML/) project seeks applicants for a
post-doctoral fellowship valued at $32,500 per year for up to two years.
The successful applicant will be expected to join the project on site in
Victoria, BC, and work closely with the project director, developers,
and research assistants in the next phase of /MoEML/'s development. He
or she will take a leading role in the ongoing identification of all the
features of the Agas Map (/Civitas Londinum/); textual and critical work
on the map; ongoing work on the encyclopedia of early modern streets and
sites; and the editing, markup, annotation, and creation of a critical
apparatus for a versioned edition of the 1598, 1603,1633, and modern
texts of John Stow's /A Survey of London/. The successful applicant
will also be encouraged to work on related projects, to bring his or her
particular research interests to /MoEML/, and to help shape /MoEML/'s
future. Applicants need to have a strong background in the literature
of early modern London, preferably in textual criticism, drama,
chronicle histories, civic literature, pageantry, and/or the
geohumanities. Facility with literary computing and some knowledge of
TEI are essential. Experience with editing, historical or literary GIS,
and databases is desirable.
