        Subject: Last Call: Position for Digital Historian at Stanford

Stanford University Libraries is hiring an Academic Technology 
Specialist (ATS) for the History Department.

The ATS collaborates with faculty and graduate students developing and 
deploying innovative technological solutions in pursuit of research, 
teaching and publication. Rather than acting as a technical consultant, 
the ATS takes a leading role in launching new projects. Consequently, 
the ATS must demonstrate not only expertise with academic technology, 
but a fundamental understanding of the ideas that form the foundation of 
history and the humanities.

The ATS position falls within the rising tide of hybrid alternative 
academic (#alt-ac) careers. The ATS will have an office within the 
History department in order to assure proximity and availability to 
faculty, but will report to a manager in the Academic Technology 
Specialist Program (ATSP) a unit of Stanford University Libraries. The 
ATS will benefit from working at Stanford's Center for Spatial and 
Textual Analysis (CESTA) and, more broadly, will be embedded in one of 
the world's leading interdisciplinary research universities in the heart 
of Silicon Valley.

This is a full time position. An advanced degree in History is required, 
PhD preferred.

Applications will be accepted through September 30, 2012 at 
http://jobs.stanford.edu/. Enter the job number 48502 in the keyword 
search. Contact Nicole Coleman at cnc at stanford.edu if you have any
