        Subject: Digital Humanities Postdoc at UC Merced

Greetings Humanist Colleagues!

If you are a recent Ph.D. or if you communicate with recent Ph.D.s, please take a look at this call for applicants for a postdoc in the Digital Humanities at the UC Merced Center for the Humanities:


The Center for Humanities will appoint two Postdoctoral Scholars for two years from the humanities and descriptive social sciences to participate in the Center academic program for 2013-15. Postdoctoral Scholars should have research projects which engage the Center's theme, "The World Upside Down: Topsy-Turvy," and that fall in the areas of Digital Humanities or Public Humanities. During their two-year appointment, they will continue their research programs; participate in the Humanities Center seminar, offering a paper at least once during that time; do one public presentation in an off-campus location; and work with faculty to plan the final conference of the period. It is expected that Scholars will have the opportunity to teach one course each year in an area of their research. Upon final determination of course offerings, the Postdoctoral appointment would be reduced to allow for a teaching appointment. We anticipate that this position will be 83% Postdoctoral Scholar and 17% Lecturer; the combination of both appointments will not exceed 100% time. A full description of the research program and theme can be found on the Center website at http://crha.ucmerced.edu/node/23.

Applications are due May 9.
