Neukom Fellows at Dartmouth College

(Deadline extended to January 1; applicants with a background in Humanities
Computing/Digital Humanities welcomed.)

The Neukom Institute for Computational Science at Dartmouth College is pleased
to announce the 2014 Neukom Fellows competition. Neukom Fellows are
interdisciplinary positions for recent Ph.D.s, DMAs, or MFAs whose research
interests or practice cuts across traditional disciplinary boundaries, but has
some computational component, whether it be a framing concept for intellectual
exploration or an explicit component of the work that is pursued. The successful
candidate should have a history of collaborative work across disciplines, but
still show good evidence of independence and initiative. The Fellowships are
two- to three-year appointments, with the third year extension considered upon
request after a review early in the second year. Neukom Fellows will be mentored
by faculty in two departments at Dartmouth College, take up residence in one
department, and will teach one seminar course each year on a subject of their
interest. Beyond that there are no additional duties. Neukom Fellow stipends are
$60,000 for 2014-2015. Additional funds are available for equipment, travel, and
research materials.

Requirements: 1. Ph.D. in any discipline or DMA or MFA (or expected by
September 2014).  2. Research interests that strongly intersect the theme of
computation.  3. A proven ability to work independently and collaboratively 4.
A demonstrated interest in multidisciplinary research.  5. Evidence of the
ability to think outside traditional paradigms.

Application Materials: Interested candidates are strongly encouraged to contact
prospective mentors at Dartmouth College and must submit the following
materials: 1) Curriculum vitae (including publications list).
2) Statement of
research interests (max. 2 pages) including a short description of the research
you would like to pursue and why.
3) Description of which departments (and even
better, which Dartmouth faculty) you would be interested in working with and why
the opportunity to engage with multiple departments would enhance your work. 4)
Three referees whose letters of recommendation speak to the aims of the
Fellowship. 5) (Optional) A copy of one paper you have written in English,
either published or unpublished.

Completed applications received by January 1, 2014 will receive first
consideration. Materials received after that date or those that do not fulfill
the above requirements stand the chance of not being considered. Applications
from women and minorities are encouraged. Dartmouth College is an equal
opportunity employer.  For a list of current Neukom Fellows:
