The Faculty of Music is looking to appoint a Research Assistant (RA) to work on the project, Tudor Partbooks: the manuscript legacies of John Sadler, John Baldwin and their antecedents, for a period of three years, starting on 1 September 2014.
Funded by the AHRC, Tudor Partbooks investigates English music manuscripts from the 1510s to the 1580s, in particular two Elizabethan partbook sets. Among several outputs, the Sadler partbooks will be published in facsimile, digitally restored to their state in the 1570s, before they were degraded by John Sadler’s acidic ink; the Baldwin partbooks will be published with a replacement Tenor partbook contrapuntally restored by a team of specialists. The RA will assist in the preparation of these outputs, in the editing of electronic outputs (digital images, podcasts and VLE), and in convening project meetings and managing relationships with project collaborators.
Applications are welcome from candidates with expertise in the field of early music and the ability to use information technology for typesetting music or text and image processing.
Further particulars, including project details, salary, specification and details of how to apply are available on the Oxford University jobs webpage here.
Deadline for application is Wednesday 23 April 2014, 12.00 (noon)
