Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia
Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici
Research fellowship on “Digital mapping of lemmas from the Atticist lexica Eclogue, Praeparatio
sophistica, Antiatticist, Moeris”, tutor prof. Olga Tribulato, Ca' Foscari University of Venice (Italian
law 30 December 2010, n. 240, art. 22)
The present document in English is to be considered as a mere summary of the main provisions of
the notice of competition which is available in Italian at the following (link) The text in Italian is the
official text of the notice of competition for all legal intents and purposes and, in the event of non-
conformity with the present document, it shall prevail.
The Department of Humanities at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice (Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici
dell’Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia) invites applications for a fellowship in: “Digital mapping of lemmas
from the Atticist lexica Eclogue, Praeparatio sophistica, Antiatticist, Moeris”, Academic discipline: L-
FIL-LET/02 Greek language and literrature, Tutor prof. Olga Tribulato, within the FARE Project entitled
“Digital Encyclopedia of Atticism: Creating a New Digital Tool for the Study of Greek Lexicography, CUP:
The fellowship is intended to provide the successful candidate with the opportunity to pursue his/her own research while benefiting from the range of expertise at Università Ca' Foscari Venezia.
The post-doc (a scholar in Ancient Greek with expertise in ancient erudition and the transmission of Attic literary texts) will be in charge of significantly augmenting the corpus of lexicographic articles of the Digital Encyclopedia of Atticism ([http://www.atticism.eu<http://www.atticism.eu]www.atticism.eu<http://www.atticism.eu>) of the ERC PURA project, and of improving its digital interoperability, in collaboration with the VeDPH and the IT experts in charge of it. The concrete objective will be to create a complete digital mapping of the lemmas of four lexica (Eclogue, Praeparatio Sophistica, Antiatticist, Moeris) consisting in lexicographic articles identical to parts A, B, C of those already published in DEA (therefore without the linguistic commentary – minimum target 300 articles). The second objective will be the production of some ‘expanded’ lexicographic articles, inclusive of the linguistic and philological commentary (minimum target 25: eventually to be changed according to the development of the research).
The research fellow will also organise and lead an outreach project for schools on to the application of digital tools to ancient texts and using DEA as a case study.
Who can apply
Prospective candidates are expected to hold:
- Ph.D. in Classics with a focus on language, literature and philology and appropriate academic and professional CV.
Ca' Foscari encourages applications from researchers with positive evaluation in all the criteria in individual proposals such as Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions - Individual Fellowships/ERC Starting Grants/FIRB (Italian Fund for basic research investments)/SIR (Scientific Young Independence Research) or similar.

Duration of contract: 36 months (approximate starting date: 1st March 2023).
Stipend: The research fellowship total amount is 70.530,00 Euros, including taxes and social charges.
Deadline for submission of applications: 20th January 2023, h. 12.00 noon (Italian time)

University of Oslo
Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas
Postdoctoral Research Fellow - Greek Heritage in European Culture and Identity
A Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (SKO 1352) is available at the Department of Philosophy, Classics, and the History of Art and Ideas of the University of Oslo.
The fellowship is part of the project GrECI ("Greek Heritage in European Culture and Identity"), funded by the European Research Council (HORIZON-WIDERA-2021ACCESS call, 101079379). The project consists of a close collaboration between the University of Oslo (Norway), the University of Cyprus, and the University of Franche-Comté (France).
The heritage of ancient Greece is commonly regarded as a main component of a shared European culture. But how did this idea emerge? The complex historical processes of cultural reception that shaped it are still in need of explanation. The research project "Greek Heritage in European Culture and Identity" (GrECI) explores a key phase in this process: the reception and appropriation of the heritage of ancient Greece in early modern Europe (15th-17th century).
The project relies on a close collaboration between the University of Oslo (Prof. Han Lamers<https://www.hf.uio.no/ifikk/english/people/aca/classics/tenured/hanla/>), the University of Cyprus (Dr Natasha Constantinidou<https://ucyweb.ucy.ac.cy/dir/en/component/comprofiler/userprofile/aaconst>), and the University of Franche-Comté (Prof. Marie Barral-Baron Daussy<http://centre-lucien-febvre.univ-fcomte.fr/pages/fr/barral-baron-daussy-marie-18173.html>). The consortium aspires to promote collaboration in the field both by making scholarly contributions in the form of conference papers and various publications and by developing a network of scholars via meetings, workshops, and conferences. It focuses especially on early career researchers.
The research conducted at the University of Oslo specifically aims to contribute to our understanding of the cultural history of Greek learning in early modern Europe. How did writers and artists shape notions of Greek language, literature, and culture? Did they understand ancient Greece as part of their own cultural heritage? And if so, in what ways?
