Forwarded from Gethin Rees:
The British Library are advertising placements for PhD students, several of which might be of interest.
May I draw your attention to the placement titled ‘Identifying and using map images in born-digital collections’.
The deadline for applications is 18 February 2019.
This is a great opportunity for a student with an interest in geography, maps and digital research to develop their skills and experience through working with the British Library’s diverse digital collections.
Editor’s note: there are also several other placements in this call for applications that may be of interest to digital classicts, including:
- Greek Papyri of Late Antique Egypt
- Illumination in Persian manuscripts
- Historic photographs of the Silk Road
- The oriental manuscripts collection of Sir William Jones (1746-94)
And potentially many others…
