Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Digital Humanities

The Faculty of Arts at McGill University invites applications for a 
Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Digital Humanities. The successful 
candidate will have the academic credentials necessary for a 
tenure-track appointment as an advanced Assistant or Associate Professor 
in an appropriate disciplinary department.

Funded by the Government of Canada, Tier 2 Canada Research Chairs allow 
Canadian universities to attract and retain exceptional emerging 
researchers. Chairholders are also eligible for infrastructure support 
from the Canada Foundation for Innovation to help acquire 
state-of-the-art equipment essential to their work. For further 
information on the CRC program, please see http://www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/.

We seek a scholar with a proven record of securing external funding to 
support digital humanities initiatives and the ability to build 
institutional capability in this area at McGill. The successful 
candidate will have a broad understanding of the history, significance, 
and application of digital technologies in one or more substantive areas 
of the humanities, including a demonstrated interest in the development 
of new digital tools and innovative methodologies. Along with critically 
exploring how digital technology can augment the practice of humanities 
scholarship, the CRC in Digital Humanities will advance the role 
humanities scholarship plays in developing our understanding of digital 
media in one or more of the domains of culture: art, literature, film, 
theatre, sound, architecture, and/or other media or forms of expression.

Applications should include a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, 
writing samples, evidence of teaching effectiveness, and three letters 
of reference. The position start date is August 1, 2011. Review of 
applications will begin on February 11, 2011, and will continue until 
the position is filled.
