The successful candidate will have responsibility for that part of the project dealing with the bibliography of the German lands, 1501-1650. This will involve an enhancement of the data currently available from the German bibliographical projects VD 16 and VD 17 by the systematic search of collections outside the German-speaking lands. The USTC will also be seeking to incorporate data on printed items that fall outside the terms of reference of the VD 16 and VD 17.
The successful candidate is likely to have experience working within the field of German history or literature, and to have prior experience of working with early printed books. There are no teaching duties attached to this post, although opportunities to obtain teaching experience may be available by agreement with the Project Director. The USTC places a high value on teamwork, and the successful candidate will be expected to work closely with the other staff and students of the USTC group.
