The Living Archives project at Malmö University is looking for two two-year
post docs. One position is for candidates with a background in computer
science. Relevant backgrounds for the other position is cultural studies,
memory studies, artistic or performance research, media and communication
studies, or closely related subject area.

Living Archives is a research project funded by the Swedish Research
Council (Vetenskapsrådet) and run by Malmö University. The official title
of the project is Living Archives: Enhancing the role of the public archive
by performing memory, open data access and participatory design. More
information about the project: http://livingarchives.mah.se/about/

The Post Doctorate based in the Faculty of Technology and Society will
address the creation and use of archives, combined with open data aspects.
Relevant aspects include metadata, linked data, mobile devices,
physiological data, gaming and crowdsourcing. Further, it is relevant to
explore how to mobilize the archive by moving it onto mobile platforms and
explore how live data communicated by mobile devices might become instant
archives. Ideally, prototype development and evaluation will be combined
with critical perspectives in order to establish tools, methods, and best
practices in this area. The Post Doc may propose a sub project relevant to
the goals of the Living Archives project, or he/she may choose to
collaborate actively with one of the sub projects already existing in the
Living Archives project.

The Post Doctorate based in the Faculty of Culture and Society will take a
social, cultural and critical perspective on archives. This candidate
should have a background in cultural studies, memory studies, artistic or
performance research, media and communication studies, or closely related
subject area. This person might analyze how digital archives for cultural
heritage can become social resources, how they can facilitate social
change, create cultural awareness and collective collaboration. She or he
might also attend to those archiving practices that are not
institutionalized or formally recognized: diverse, heterogeneous archiving
practices that occur constantly but are largely unacknowledged.
Contemporary practices associated with mobile media, storytelling, gaming,
open data, and performance are relevant. The Post Doc may propose a
particular sub project relevant to a specific archive or set of archiving
practices, or they may choose to collaborate actively with one of the sub
projects already existing in the Living Archives project.
