        Subject: Two UVa Scholars' Lab opportunities: Head of Scholars' Lab, & Head of Graduate Programs


We are delighted to announce two exciting job opportunities at the
Scholars’ Lab in the University of Virginia Library. Read on for more
details!

HEAD OF SCHOLARS’ LAB
(
http://www.scholarslab.org/announcements/are-you-the-new-head-of-scholars-lab/
)

Are you an experienced digital humanities scholar-practitioner with a
strong background in project management and public service? The University
of Virginia Library seeks an energetic, adaptable leader for the digital
consultation services and intellectual programming of our
internationally-respected Scholars’ Lab. The ideal candidate is
detail-oriented, eager to work collaboratively with diverse faculty and
staff, and able to muster and effectively communicate UVa Library’s deep
resources for digital scholarship. This supervisory position is responsible
for day-to-day operations in the Scholars’ Lab and, together with the heads
of Graduate Programs and Research & Development, completes the leadership
team reporting to the Director of Digital Research and Scholarship for UVa
Library.

The Head of the Scholars’ Lab should have a strong service ethic, broad
technical knowledge, and ability to collaborate as a partner with faculty
and graduate students, enabling next-generation digital scholarship in a
library lab setting. He or she should also be able to take good advantage
of the “20% time” afforded to all in the Department of Digital Research &
Scholarship to pursue professional development and their own (often
collaborative) research projects related to the mission of the Scholars’
Lab. This is a full-time, permanent managerial and professional staff
position at UVa.

HEAD OF GRADUATE PROGRAMS
(http://www.scholarslab.org/announcements/head-graduate-programs/)

The University of Virginia Library is also seeking an experienced,
versatile digital scholar and administrator to lead programs for graduate
students in our internationally recognized Scholars’ Lab; home of
the Praxis Program and a vibrant community of Graduate Fellows in Digital
Humanities. For this position, the ideal candidate will have: deep
familiarity with humanities scholarship and digital methods at the graduate
level; an interest in experimental approaches to analysis, authoring, and
publication; experience in teaching and administrative roles in higher
education; and a commitment to the training of emerging scholars and
alternative academic humanities professionals. Reporting to the Director of
Digital Research and Scholarship for UVa Library, the Head of Scholars’ Lab
Graduate Programs joins an accomplished and forward-looking digital
scholarship team, and is eligible for the self-directed research time that
all of our staff members are granted for professional engagement and to
pursue their own, often collaborative, R&D projects.

For full details, and to apply for the position, please see the official
posting at http://bit.ly/19YQeWj. (You can also visit

Scholars’ Lab team!
