- Aid professional and career development by facilitating the acquisition of transferable skills.
- Increase opportunities for dissemination of research through user engagement and of the various skills and techniques required to make this effective and mutually beneficial.
- Increase opportunities for the exchange of skills and perspectives and the sharing of resources between academic and non-academic environments.

Offre de stage – Développement Web pour les Humanités Numériques
Commanditaire : Thomas Lebarbé (LIDILEM – U. Grenoble – Alpes)
Lieu : Université de Grenoble ou MSH-Alpes
Compétences requises : Ingénieur de développement Web
Durée du stage : 4 mois
Rémunération : gratification réglementaire (désolé de ne pouvoir faire mieux)
Le domaine des humanités numériques est en plein essor depuis quelques années mais présente encore la faiblesse d’être peu outillé pour la production de sources textuelles (transcription de manuscrits, enrichissement scientifique, annotation critique, intellectuelle, etc.). L’université Stendhal s’est engagée depuis plusieurs années dans un certain nombre de projets de valorisation de patrimoines littéraires et développe des collaborations avec différentes universités aussi bien au niveau national qu’au niveau international. Le projet de stage s’inscrit dans une collaboration entre l’université Stendhal – Grenoble Alpes et l’Université Paris VII.
Description du stage :
Le stage se décompose en deux parties :
1/ Développement d’un environnement web de production WYSIWYM (what you see is what you mean). Etant données une grammaire (DTD) et une feuille de style (CSS), il s’agit de donner un environnement de production de documents XML qui à la fois accompagne et contraigne le producteur : accompagner avec une mise en forme qui libère l’utilisateur des contraintes techniques et contraindre en pilotant la production par le biais de la grammaire.
2/ Développement d’une plateforme encapsulant l’environnement de production. L’objectif de l’environnement de production est de fournir à des équipes de recherche comme des équipes pédagogique, de travailler de manière collaborative autour de projets distincts. La plateforme devra donc permettre de gérer des utilisateurs (avec des rôles), des projets, des fonds.
Il ne s’agit pas de développer ces deux éléments ex nihilo, mais éventuellement de s’appuyer sur des outillages existants pour les adapter aux besoins et à la littératie numériques des utilisateurs finaux.
Les candidatures doivent être envoyées par mail à firstname.lastname@example.org avant le 31 janvier 2014 et feront l’objet d’un accusé de réception dans les deux jours ouvrés
Le dossier de candidature contiendra :
– un cv
– une lettre de motivation
– éventuellement la recommandation d’un enseignant
Le cas échéant, nous pourrons demander un entretien téléphonique ou en visioconférence.
Le début et la durée du stage pourront être modulée en fonction du calendrier de formation du candidat sélectionné.

CALL FOR SCHOLARSHIP PROPOSALS
This call is aimed at budding researchers with a creative and open mind towards the challenges of applied research. We offer a unique learning opportunity in a multidisciplinary research project on the isle of Gozo, Malta. Expeditions and the University of Leuven hand out eight scholarships that cover part or all of the tuition fee for the 2015 Malta Summer School.

More information on the project can be find on: www.anthropologyfieldschool.org

Selection is NOT based on academic merit, originality or complexity. We aim for enthusiasm, dedication and creativity. In the past years even students who were not enrolled in an anthropology program got scholarships for the project.
Candidates are invited to propose two or more creative research concepts that can be performed during the summer school. So the research topic has to relate to something on which you can do fieldwork on Malta, and preferably Gozo.
From these proposals, the academic board of Expeditions will select 15 different candidates to work out a more detailed research plan within a deadline of two months (February/March). The three best research proposals will be granted a full scholarship. The next five runners-up will be granted a scholarship of 1,700.00? (about 60% of the total tuition) which will be deducted from their tuition fee.
In the first stage:
· All submissions will compete equally. You are allowed to send in as much research ideas as you like.
· Concepts should be rudimentarily explained.
· Applicants are asked to focus on creativity and an initial-stage argumentation on why the research is valuable.
After initial acceptance:
· Applicants will develop further one selected proposal under assistance of our tutors (via e-mail or skype).
· Elaboration on feasibility, methodology and research layouts should fleshed out in this stage only
· Final research proposals to be submitted within two months after initial acceptance
How to apply?
· Send us 2 or more research concepts (but at least two!).
· 150-250 words per research concept.
· Submitting can only be done through the form on our website.
· The deadline for submissions is January 25th, 2015.
Please note that the number of students accepted in the program is limited. Scholarships will be granted only after the completion of the selection procedure, while registration is open to non-scholarship participants. In case you wish to join the project even if you don’t get the scholarship, we advise to register through the regular procedure as early as possible since non-scholarship slots are usually filled by the end of December.
