Salary Details: Salary to be set upon negotiation from £60,000
Allowances: £2,323 London Allowance
Contract Type: Permanent
Contract Term: Full time

The Department of Digital Humanities (DDH) joined what was then the 
School of Arts and Humanities as the Centre for Computing in the 
Humanities. Departmental status was conferred in 2010 and the name 
changed to Department of Digital Humanities, the first such department 
in the country. The Department has a vibrant teaching culture which 
offers a PhD in Digital Humanities, four MA programmes in Digital 
Humanities; Digital Asset and Media Management; Digital Curation (joint 
with University of Humboldt); and Digital Culture and Society (joint 
with CMCI). The Department is launching a BA in Digital Cultures to 
start in 2015/16. DDH is part of the London Arts & Humanities 
Partnership (2014) and provides training (in collaboration with UCL and 
the Institute for Historical Research) in digital humanities methods for 
PhD students across London. The Department was part of a successful 
joint submission (with our sister Department of Culture, Media, and 
Creative Industries) to the 2014 UK Research Excellence Framework (REF) 
for the UoA 36: Communication, Cultural and Media Studies, Library and 
Information Management, in which our submission was rated 8th overall, 
and 1st for research power.

The Department of Digital Humanities is seeking to appoint a Professor 
of Digital Humanities tenable from 1st September 2015. The post-holder 
will take a leading role in delivering world-leading research, research 
led teaching, and research mentoring and supervision. The post-holder 
will also be expected to take a leading role in the administration of 
the Department, including providing leadership as Head of Department in 
the future.

The post holder will be able to demonstrate an international profile in 
the digital humanities broadly conceived, with an excellent publication 
record and preferably a track record of achieving grant funding. We are 
seeking to recruit a Chair whose work builds and expands on our 
research, extending the department’s work into new directions and 
significant emergent areas. Candidates from all areas of the digital 
humanities will be considered but we particularly welcome applications 
from candidates whose research seeks to demonstrate a deep theoretical 
understanding of the digital humanities and how the theoretical insights 
gained might be used to provoke new thinking, be applied in practice, 
and to cross disciplinary and domain boundaries. The post holder will be 
expected to provide inspiring and innovative teaching that features a 
mix of theory, practice and interactivity, initially across the existing 
range of options, and to create new modules of broad interest at both BA 
and MA level. S/he will also seek out new and emerging student markets 
and contribute to the development of new programmes to meet student demand.

The closing date for receipt of applications is 17th June 2015.

Interviews will be held on early July 2015.

Equality of opportunity is College policy.

Salary to be settled by negotiation, based on qualifications and 
experience, starting from £60,000.

For an informal discussion of the post please contact Sheila Anderson 
Head of Department on 020-7848-1981 or via email at 
sheila.anderson at kcl.ac.uk.

Closing date: 17 June 2015
