Open rank Faculty position at Northeastern in computational social science/digital humanities

Northeastern University invites applications and nominations at all ranks (Professor/Associate Professor/Assistant Professor) for a cluster of faculty positions in fields encompassed by the Digital Humanities and Computational Social Science. We define the range of relevant disciplines broadly to include study in the humanities or human behavior and developing computational methods applied to these domains.

In association with a new multidisciplinary center, the NUlab for Texts, Maps, and Networks, this cluster hire builds on Northeastern’s national prominence in the digital humanities, computational social science, and network science. At the core of NUlab lies new collaborative work across disciplines in the era of big data, digitized texts, visualization, and social media. The premise of the lab is that both the humanities and the social sciences are at the beginning of a paradigm shift driven by the opportunities offered by emerging corpora of large-scale data coupled with enormous computational power.

We welcome applications from faculty engaged in research areas and technologies including (but not limited to) geographic information systems, text mining, topic modeling, network analysis, natural language processing, machine learning, gaming, new media, digital curation, and data visualization and design. Cross-disciplinary and cross-college appointments are possible.

Inquiries and nominations may be directed to Professor Elizabeth Maddock Dillon <e.dillon at neu.edu<mailto:e.dillon at neu.edu>> or Professor David Lazer <d.lazer at neu.edu<mailto:d.lazer at neu.edu>>.   (Please put in subject line of any inquiries "Inquiry re DH/CSS search".)  Review of applications will begin December 10, 2012, but the search will remain open until all positions are filled.

        From: "Brookes, Stewart" <stewart.brookes at kcl.ac.uk>
        Subject: Programmer required for DigiPal Project at DDH, King's College London


A new vacancy has come up for a programmer on the DigiPal team
(http:/digipal.eu). 

The position is for 18 months and is for a developer with Python (ideally
Django) and relational database skills, preferably also with knowledge of
JavaScript/JQuery and AJAX and an interest in interface design, data
modelling and medieval manuscripts. 

You will be working closely with the existing DigiPal team as the principal
developer and will be responsible for most of the development work in
practice.

The appointment is for 100% (full time) and you will be based in the
Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London but dedicated to
the DigiPal project .

Applications close on 1 January 2013, with interviews planned for soon after
that. We are looking for an immediate start, though of course we understand
that you may have other commitments. Although the formal contract is 18
months, but an extension to 30 September 2014 is very likely in practice.
