The University of Texas at Dallas seeks applications for postdoctoral
fellows in support of its research programs in Arts and Humanities,
including but not limited to digital content design and development, game
design, translation studies, and the cultural impact of developments in
science and technology.

The School specifically invites applications for a post-doctoral fellow in
Digital Humanities to support the activities of the Center for Values in
Medicine, Science and Technology. Candidates should hold a PhD in a
humanities-related field, have a commitment to working in an
interdisciplinary humanities environment, be familiar with the most recent
work in the Digital Humanities, and have strong grant writing skills and a
basic understanding of project management. The appointment will last from
January 2010 through August 2011.

The primary responsibility of the fellow will be in helping faculty to
organize and improve existing projects as well as develop future research.
While expertise in a particular coding or scripting language (PHP, Ruby on
Rails, CSS, XML, SQL databases) is not a prerequisite, basic literacy and
familiarity with these tools is necessary.

The School of Arts and Humanities engages postdoctoral fellows to engage in
extramural research in support of existing research programs and to assist
in mentoring promising graduate students at all levels of expertise.
Successful candidates may also engage in independent research projects. Some
fellows may also be required to teach primarily at the main campus, although
some courses may be taught at other locations throughout the Metroplex.
Courses are offered between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. and may
include lecture, laboratory, seminar, and distance education formats, among

history, research interests and descriptions of educational background and
