        Subject: Neukom Fellows at Dartmouth College Call for Applications (postdoc)

Dear humanist,

Below you'll find a call for applications for postdoctoral positions at
Dartmouth College. I can assure you that applicants with backgrounds in
humanities computing will be welcomed.

Best wishes,

Allen Riddell


The Neukom Institute for Computational Science at Dartmouth College is pleased
to announce the Neukom Fellows competition for positions starting September 1,

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 2015-2016. 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. Applicants are strongly
   encouraged to seek out connections with and contact potential Dartmouth
   mentors as they draft their applications. 

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 November 15, 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. General
inquiries should be directed to the Neukom Institute Manager, Victoria Smith
(Victoria.H.Smith at dartmouth.edu). Dartmouth is an equal opportunity/ affirmative
action employer with a strong commitment to diversity. In that spirit, we are
particularly interested in receiving applications from a broad spectrum of
people, including women, persons of color, persons with disabilities, veterans
or any other legally protected group.
