Following the award of a European Research Council Advanced Grant to Professor
Andy Orchard (‘A Consolidated Library of Anglo-Saxon Poetry’), the Faculty of
English Language and Literature is seeking to appoint additional Research
Assistants to work on the project.



CLASP is an ERC-funded project that comprises a fully-searchable multimedia
library of Anglo-Saxon poetry, along with modern translations and a
comprehensive database, including digital facsimiles of the surviving
manuscripts. The 60,000 lines of verse, mainly in Latin and Old English, can
be interrogated in both normalized and manuscript spellings, and are further
analysed according to metre, diction, formulas, sources, themes, and
emendations, so offering a multi-layered tool for mapping the transition from
speech to script to print in ways previously unimaginable. The comprehensive
multilingual and multifaceted perspectives provided by CLASP are unparalleled
for the poetry of any period of English literature, and offer innovative
opportunities for teaching and research, encouraging new editions,
translations, readings, interpretations, and audiences.





Reporting to the Principal Investigator (Professor Andy Orchard) either
directly or indirectly via one of the three Postdoctoral Research Assistants
(Drs Rachel Burns, Colleen Curran, and Rafael Pascual), the post holders will
be members of the disparate research network that forms CLASP (A Consolidated
Library of Anglo-Saxon Poetry www.clasp.ell.ox.ac.uk), working independently
to provide research support in a number of designated key areas relating to
Old English and Anglo-Latin poetry. Such areas include: palaeography,
codicology, punctuation, and _mise-en-page_ of relevant manuscripts; scribal
and editorial practice; bibliography; lexicography, including lemmatization
and morphological analysis, as well as establishing word- and form-
frequencies; prosody and metre, including scansion and the marking of
diacritics; normalization; syntax; source-study; classification of formulas
and themes; translation into Modern English. The post holders will gain
familiarity and experience with a wide range of printed editions and
commentaries pertaining to texts of Old English and Anglo-Latin verse, as well
as with a range of digital tools, some developed in the course of the project
itself.





Applicants should be working toward a doctorate in a specialist discipline
relating to Old English or Latin Verse; have proven ability in Anglo-Latin and
Old English; have experience of work with Anglo-Saxon texts and manuscripts,
including accuracy in transcription and translation; be able to work flexibly,
and in a team; have excellent communication skills including the ability to
prepare publications and present at conferences; and the capability to manage
their own research and administrative activities.





Further Particulars (which all applicants must consult) are available below.





Applications (which should include a CV and a supporting statement explaining
your suitability for the post) should be made online via the link above by 12
noon on **Monday 22 March 2021**.





Interviews are expected to be held online during week beginning **6 April
2021**.
