Reporting to the Principal Investigator, the Research Fellow
works alongside a Java Developer and GUI Developer as well as the
project's other Co-PI, Professor Abigail Firey (University of Kentucky).
The Research Fellow contributes to T-PEN's general development (which
features to create or modify, how to make the application more usable,
etc.), participates in bug reporting and usability testing, attends
weekly staff meetings, and executes a transcription project that will
act as a major use case for T-PEN. That project will be based on one or
more the 2,600 manuscripts that T-PEN currently has permission to use,
which are drawn from five partnering digital repositories (Parker on the
Web, e-codices, CEEC, Hougthon Library [Harvard] and Assisi). The
Research Fellow will publish a working digital edition of the text based
on the transcription work using T-PEN throughout the academic year. The
Research Fellow also contributes posts to T-PEN's blog and must be
willing to "tweet" about the project on a regular basis on Twitter.
The successful candidate will possess a doctorate in medieval studies(or a single humanities discipline with a medieval research focus) and
