The Digital Scholarly Editions Initial Training Network (DiXiT)* offers 12 fellowships to Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) for a period of 3 years and 5 fellowships to Experienced Researchers (ERs) for a period of 12 to 20 months. Fellowships are now open for applications (except 4 ER fellowships which will start at a later date).

Academic Requirements:
Early‐Stage Researchers must be in the first 4 years of their research careers and not yet have a doctoral degree. This is measured from the date when they obtained the degree which would formally entitle them to embark on a doctorate, irrespective of whether or not a doctorate is envisaged.
Experienced Researchers must be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least 4 years of full‐time equivalent research experience. At the time of recruitment by the host organisation an experienced researcher must also have less than 5 years of full‐time equivalent research experience.
It should be noted that an individual researcher may not be recruited first as an ESR and subsequently as an ER in the same project.

Marie Curie ITN mobility requirement:
Researchers can be of any nationality. They are required to undertake trans‐national mobility (i.e. move from one country to another) when taking up their appointment. One general rule applies to the appointment of researchers:
At the time of recruitment by the host organisation, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date.
Short stays such as holidays and/or compulsory national service are not taken into account.

Application process:
Please note that applications from any qualified applicants, regardless of gender, ethnicity or country of origin are welcome if they meet the eligibility requirements.
Applicants should send their applications directly to the institution hosting the desired fellowship. Applications for more than one post are welcome – however, multiple applications should be indicated via the obligatory DiXiT application form (which has to be submitted separately from the application documents send to the hosting institution).

Deadline:
The deadline for applications is the 10th December 2013.
Please note that the four remaining ER fellowships will start at a later date and the possibility of application will be announced accordingly.
