        Subject: Job in computational humanities at The Ohio State University

Dear Colleagues,

I've just learned of a new job listing at Ohio State that might interest subscribers to Humanist:


The College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University invites nominations and applications for a tenured position in computational humanities, beginning autumn 2016. The designated rank is associate professor or professor; the departmental home is open. We conceive computational humanities broadly, as a field that uses computational methodologies to change or pursue research questions in the humanities, or creates human- and machine-readable databases to catalogue knowledge in the humanities. Research and teaching interests might include network theory and analysis, stylistic analysis, text mining, visualization and mapping, technologies of reading, or computational literary criticism. This position is partially funded by Ohio State’s Discovery Themes, a significant faculty hiring investment in key thematic areas in which the university can build on its culture of academic collaboration to make a global impact https://discovery.osu.edu/focus-areas/data-analytics/.

Qualifications: Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. and to present evidence of excellence in teaching and research. Preference will be given to candidates with a strong record of cross-disciplinary collaboration. Appointment is contingent on the university’s verification of credentials and other information required by law and/or university policies, including but not limited to a criminal background check.

About Columbus: The Ohio State University campus is located in Columbus, the capital city of Ohio. Columbus is the center of a rapidly growing and diverse metropolitan area with a population of over 1.5 million. The area offers a wide range of affordable housing, many cultural and recreational opportunities, excellent schools, and a strong economy based on government as well as service, transportation and technology industries (see http://liveworkplaycolumbus.com/). Columbus has consistently been rated as one of the Top U.S. cities for quality of life, and was selected as one of the Top 10 cities for African Americans to live, work, and play by Black Enterprise magazine. Additional information about the Columbus area is available at http://www.columbus.org http://www.columbus.org/ .  <http://www.columbus.org.%c2%a0/.

Application Instructions: Review of applications will begin on January 15, 2016 and will continue until the position is filled.

Nominations should be sent to David Horn, Department of Comparative Studies, 451 Hagerty Hall, 1775 College Road, Columbus, OH 43210 (horn.5 at osu.edu<mailto:horn.5 at osu.edu>).
