Applications are invited for a 48 months post of a UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 or Level 2 within School of Irish, Celtic Studies and Folklore.
Applications are invited for the above post of a postdoctoral researcher in the UCD School of Irish, Celtic Studies and Folklore. The successful candidate will work under the direction of Dr Fangzhe Qiu (Principal Investigator) on the research project `Fluid texts and scholars' digests: (re)production of law in medieval Ireland (FLEXI)' (2023-2028).
About the project:
FLEXI is funded by the ERC Starting Grant. This project examines the four sets of late medieval Irish legal florilegia called `digests', and aims to find out how law texts were (re)produced, studied, and transmitted in medieval Ireland. FLEXI traces and measures the sources used in these digests quantitatively, using linked data model and network analysis to reveal their text reuse patterns. It also looks for possible influences from other legal traditions on the compilatory principles of the digests, and tests and develops software for automated detection of parallel texts (text reuse) for early Irish texts.
In addition to the Principal Duties and Responsibilities listed below, the successful candidate will carry out the following duties specific to this project:
- Designing the ontology and a database for early Irish legal texts
- Carrying out network analysis of the texts to find out their compilatory principles and text reuse patterns
- Visualisation of textual networks
- Testing current software on the automated detection of text reuse on early Irish law texts and developing tools needed to enhance performance of Irish texts.
The primary purpose of the role is to further develop your research skills and competences, including the processes of publication in peer-reviewed academic publications, the development of funding proposals, the mentorship of graduate students along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research led teaching.
