The University of New Castle is offering a PhD Scholarship for a student with a literary studies, computer science or statisticsbackground.
The scholarship includes tuition fees and living allowance of $26,288 per annum, and some local and international travel support.
The Shakespeare First Folio is arguably the most important document in English literature, but important questions about the texts it includes remain in dispute. This ARC-funded project, led by Professor Hugh Craig, is using statistical methods to date rival versions, detect patterns of authorial revision compared to random textual corruption, and measure the closeness or divergence between different versions. The findings will have an impact on the wording and presentation of plays read and heard by millions world-wide.
The successful candidate will be a member of the Centre for Literary and Linguistic Computing and the Centre for 21st Century Humanities at Newcastle, and will join a global network of computational stylistics researchers.
Applicants will have a background in literary studies, computer science, or statistics.
The scholarship includes tuition fees and living allowance of $26,288 per annum (2016 rate), a laptop on commencement of the PhD, and some local and international travel support.
This scholarship is available to International and Australian candidates.
The University of New Castle stands as a global leader distinguished by a commitment to equity and excellence and to creating a better future for its regions through a focus on innovation and impact.
