We are developing a web-based research environment for humanities scholars and are looking for a new member for our front-end web development team.
We are part of the Data and Service Center for humanities ( DaSCH - https://dasch.swiss) at the University of Basel. The DaSCH is dealing with research data from different humanities disciplines like annotated collections of photographs in cultural anthropology, letters exchanged between members of the Bernoulli-dynasty and Leonhard Euler, and primary and second source material in musicology and many more. All this data has to be made accessible to researchers in the long run and the public, as well as be preserved, so it can be cited and used in future research projects. Knora ( http://www.knora.org) is our web-based content management system on top of which we develop generic user interfaces developed with Angular 8.
You will develop Angular 8 components and services, so the data of humanities research projects can be searched for and accessed online. Scholars can manage their project, create data models, annotate and work collaboratively with their data using our Angular web-application ( https://github.com/dhlab-basel/Kuirl). You will improve the app and implement new features in collaboration with the back-end team. Developed components and modules have to be customizable and generic to meet the needs of different research projects ( https://www.npmjs.com/search?q=knora).
