Dear Colleagues,

The Penn State Libraries invite applicants and nominations for a Digital
Humanities Design Consultant:

"The Pennsylvania State University Libraries are currently seeking a
Digital Humanities Design Consultant who is a creative researcher
interested in exploring an 'alternative academic' career and in expanding
the modes of humanistic research through emerging and existing
technologies.  The person in this position will be a critical part of
initiating services and programs in support of the digital humanities at
Penn State, and will work as an intellectual partner with faculty, students
and staff in the College of the Liberal Arts.  The successful candidate
will be able to work effectively between the boundaries of various
humanities disciplines to help Penn State develop its digital humanities
research programs.  He or she will collaborate effectively and translate
ideas and concepts between diverse audiences to enable the creation of new
knowledge and will have fluency with a variety of technologies and direct
experience in bringing technology to bear on research and teaching."

This is a fixed-term (multi-year), non-tenure-track appointment based in
the newly formed Publishing and Curation Services department and funded by
both the Libraries and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. It
includes support for professional development activities.

The complete job description is posted here:

I’m writing in hopes that you might know promising young scholars who would be good candidates for the new GIS Teaching Fellows Program that the Middlebury College Geography Department is launching in Fall 2013. I attach here our job advertisement.

Our search is unusual because it is not aimed at classically trained geographers. The purpose of the Program is for Fellows to develop new courses, based on their own research expertise, that will promote spatial learning across the curriculum. The Program offers strong support and training for Fellows. They will work closely with our lead GIS and cartography professor, Jeff Howarth, a leader in applying the pedagogical practices and theory of blended learning to GIS instruction.

The additional perk is that Fellows will be teaching excellent undergraduates, including majors in Geography, Environmental Studies, Architecture, Geology, History, and other disciplines. This is a great place to teach. And the Teaching Fellows Program allows scope for curricular innovation that is rarely encouraged in new faculty.

Please forward the job ad, and this email if you wish, to anyone you know who might be interested in applying or who has graduate students working with GIS in compelling ways.

All the best,

Anne Knowles
