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.
