Open rank position in digital humanities at Northeastern

The College of Social Sciences and Humanities at Northeastern
University invites applications and nominations for an open rank
position (assistant/associate/full professor) in the field of Digital
Humanities to begin fall 2012. The successful candidate will have
expertise in new computational approaches that help distill meaning
from texts and artifacts, and in new modes of presenting these in
electronic formats.  Examples include but are not limited to
text-mining, geographic information systems, natural language
processing, visualization, or complex network analysis. He or she will
be familiar with the theoretical challenges implicit in this emerging
field, will have an interest in translating knowledge within and
between disciplines and for a broader public, and will help to build
new expertise in Digital Humanities at Northeastern. The position will
complement existing University strengths in the related areas of
network science and computational social science. Applications are
invited from any discipline that contributes to the Digital
Humanities. The appointment will be made in an appropriate department
in the College of Social Sciences and Humanities and a
cross-departmental or cross-college appointment (such as with the
College of Computer and Information Science) is also possible.
Candidates must have a PhD at the beginning of the appointment and a
record of scholarship and teaching commensurate with rank.
