|[Nettime-nl] 3-month Postdoctoral Fellowship (KNAW, Amsterdam)|
Applications are invited for three-month fellowships within the Virtual Knowledge Studio for the Humanities and Social Sciences (VKS), a programme funded by the KNAW (Royal Dutch Academy for Arts and Sciences). The VKS aims to support researchers in the humanities and social sciences in the creation of new scholarly practices, termed here e-research, as well as in their reflection on e-research in relation to the development of their fields.
A core feature of the VKS is the integration of design and analysis in a close co-operation between social scientists, humanities researchers, information technology experts, and information scientists. This integrated approach aims to provide insight into the ways in which e-research can contribute to new research questions and methods in the humanities and social sciences.
The Virtual Knowledge Studio has the following goals:
* to contribute to the design and conceptualisation of novel scholarly practices in the humanities and social sciences; * to support scholars in their experimental play with new ways of doing research and emerging forms of collaboration and communication; * to facilitate the travel of new methods, practices, resources and techniques across different disciplines; * to contribute to a better understanding of the dynamics of knowledge creation.
The fellowship is designed for junior scholars who have recently received their PhDs in order to provide the following: experience of working within an interdisciplinary research group, an opportunity to prepare material for publication and to develop new research ideas. During the three months of the fellowship, a senior member of the VKS staff will act as mentor.
* Deliver research seminar within internal VKS research meetings during first month. * Prepare at least one publication (in which VKS should be acknowledged upon publication). A draft of the publication should be circulated no later than 2 weeks before the end of the fellowship in order to enable feedback to be given before the end of the fellowship. * Prepare outline proposal for new research project. * Attend all research meetings (held every 2-3 weeks) during period of fellowship and be present at the VKS on a regular basis.
Two fellowships will be awarded each year. The next two periods, with deadlines, are:
* Autumn 2007 (deadline: 15 May 2007) * Spring 2008 (deadline: 1 October 2007)
Application materials should be sent to: Jeannette Haagsma, VKS, Cruquiusweg 31, 1019 AT Amsterdam, The Netherlands, tel: +31 (0)20 850 0282, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
