      A vacancy is now being advertised for a Research Fellow to assist in
      the preparation and publication of an edition of the Old Latin
      versions of the Gospel according to John.

      The Vetus Latina Iohannes project has been running at the University
      of Birmingham for a number of years, and has already made available
      an electronic edition of the surviving Old Latin manuscripts of John
      at http://www.iohannes.com/vetuslatina/ .

      The main duties of the Fellow will include assisting in the
      compilation of an electronic database of gospel citations in Church
      Fathers, the analysis of this material, and the preparation of a

      Applicants must have a PhD in a relevant subject, an excellent
      knowledge of Latin, the ability to learn relevant IT skills quickly,
      and the ability to work effectively as a member of a team. A good
      working knowledge of Greek, experience of database design and
      maintenance, and experience of working on a research project are
      desirable.

      The post-holder will be a member of the University's Institute for
      Textual Scholarship and Electronic Editing (www.itsee.bham.ac.uk).

      Informal enquiries may be addressed to Prof. D.C. Parker
