Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital Humanities
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
The School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (SHASS) at the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology offers a two-year Postdoctoral
Fellow appointment in Digital Humanities. The successful candidate will
work closely with faculty members of Humanities subjects (History,
Literature, Global Studies and Languages, and Comparative Media
Studies/Writing) to produce a comprehensive assessment of the needs,
current capacity, and future uses of digital humanities at MIT. In
conducting this assessment, the candidate will also consult with other
important and related scholarly and computational resources at MIT,
namely, the MIT Libraries and the Office of Digital Learning (ODL). It
is expected also that the Fellow will make contact with other Digital
Humanities Centers in the Boston area and beyond, and apply the insights
gained from these encounters to the digital humanities strengths at MIT.
The Fellow will report to the head of a SHASS DH committee, composed of
faculty representatives from the respective disciplines.
1. Doctoral degree in a discipline present in MITâs School of
Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences
2. Experience in digital humanities, demonstrated by successful
integration of digital humanities methodologies with Humanities or
Social Sciences scholarship
3. Strong computer skills, including fluency in platforms such as Omeka,
Scripto, Wordpress, Adobe Creative Suite, and video and audio editing
software. Experience designing projects that emphasize text coding and
text mining, text annotation, database management and data
visualization, or mapping applications desirable
4. Excellent written and oral communication skills
The position offers the opportunity to be a part of MITâs School of
Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, which represents one of MITâs
Five Schools. The School is home to four sections and over 50 faculty
members dedicated to scholarship in the humanities. SHASS has a long
tradition of integrating computational approaches to a range of
subjects, including (but not limited to) the teaching of foreign
languages and cultures, learning about history, analyzing the plays of
Shakespeare, and designing interactive documentary films.
Appointment will be for two-years, effective July 1, 2016. The salary
will be $64,500 per year, plus benefits.
Please submit online applications including the listed materials to
letter; one-page statement of relevant experience(s), skills, and
projects for the Fellowship; CV with links to online projects and/or
e-portfolio, and three letters of recommendation.
Review of applications will begin on March 31, 2016, and will continue
until the position is filled.
