Subject: Last Call: Position for Digital Historian at Stanford
Stanford University Libraries is hiring an Academic Technology
Specialist (ATS) for the History Department.
The ATS collaborates with faculty and graduate students developing and
deploying innovative technological solutions in pursuit of research,
teaching and publication. Rather than acting as a technical consultant,
the ATS takes a leading role in launching new projects. Consequently,
the ATS must demonstrate not only expertise with academic technology,
but a fundamental understanding of the ideas that form the foundation of
history and the humanities.
The ATS position falls within the rising tide of hybrid alternative
academic (#alt-ac) careers. The ATS will have an office within the
History department in order to assure proximity and availability to
faculty, but will report to a manager in the Academic Technology
Specialist Program (ATSP) a unit of Stanford University Libraries. The
ATS will benefit from working at Stanford's Center for Spatial and
Textual Analysis (CESTA) and, more broadly, will be embedded in one of
the world's leading interdisciplinary research universities in the heart
of Silicon Valley.
This is a full time position. An advanced degree in History is required,
Applications will be accepted through September 30, 2012 at
