        Subject: Stanford Faculty Search in Digital Humanities

Dear Dr McCarty:

We are conducting a search for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Digital Humanities, and we are writing to ask your help in identifying candidates of exceptional promise.  As the ad states,

Stanford University invites applications for a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor in the Digital Humanities, to be based in the Department of English or the Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages (departments of Comparative Literature, French and Italian, German Studies, Iberian and Latin American Cultures, Slavic Languages and Literatures).  The appointed scholar will have expertise in the literature(s) of the home department and considerable experience bringing digital tools and methodologies to literary and interdisciplinary research.  Examples of tools and methods include, but are not limited to, the fields of computer programming, text-mining, data visualization, network analysis, semantic web analysis, or GIS.

The appointed scholar will teach introductory and advanced courses in both literature and digital humanities, and will also be expected to contribute to the development of the digital humanities across the university.  Applicants will need a PhD in hand in a discipline broadly related to the hiring department by the appointment start date of 9/1/2014.   

All application materials must be submitted online through http://apply.interfolio.com/22761 .  

Applicants are asked to transmit a  cover letter, curriculum vitae (including list of publications), statements of research and teaching interests (no more than three (3) pages), teaching evaluations (if applicable), a writing sample the length of a typical research article or book chapter, along with three confidential letters of reference to the Digital Humanities Search Committee by October 28, 2013.
The search committee would appreciate your sharing our announcement with your larger community and posting it to any relevant distribution lists.  If you have candidates to recommend, please contact me.

Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty. It welcomes nominations of, and applications from, women and members of minority groups, as well as others who would bring additional dimensions to the university’s research and teaching missions.
