        Subject: Job Announcement: Digital Humanities Position at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis

Indiana University-Purdue University
Indianapolis (IUPUI)
IU School of Liberal Arts
Department of History
Start date: August 1, 2014
Title: Assistant Professor of History (Digital Humanities)

The Department of History at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) seeks a tenure-track assistant or associate professor in Digital Humanities, to begin August 1, 2014. We are looking for a scholar with a strong academic background in historical research. Period and area of specialization are open. Ph.D. required by August 1, 2014.

The successful candidate’s research should integrate the theoretical perspectives and digital tools of the evolving field of digital humanities and demonstrate the potential to produce significant scholarship. While technical skills, such as programming or expertise in database design would be beneficial, we are looking for candidates who have a firm understanding of the critical application of digital tools, the desire to continuously develop their technical expertise, and the ability to collaborate with specialists across the disciplines in order to build digital humanities capacity on campus. The IUPUI campus as well as Indiana University offer significant research support opportunities for digital scholarship within and across disciplines.

Teaching responsibilities include history survey courses and upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in digital humanities and the candidate’s fields of expertise. We seek a candidate interested in working with graduate students, the majority of which are in our nationally recognized MA Program in Public History.

IUPUI is one of the Midwest’s premier urban universities, with more than 30,000 students enrolled on a campus adjacent to downtown Indianapolis. The entire metropolitan area counts nearly 1.8 million residents and hosts museums, historical organizations, libraries, archives, and government agencies (many within walking distance of campus). The department and the public history program enjoy long-standing partnerships with many of these organizations. Our nationally-ranked programs reflect our institution’s traditions in interdisciplinary cooperation, innovative thinking, and community partnerships. The successful candidate will join a department with a strong record of community engagement and public scholarship.

Please send a letter of application, which includes evidence of digital scholarship, curriculum vitae, and three current letters of recommendation. Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2013, and will continue until the position is filled. Applications and letters of recommendation must be submitted electronically to the IUPUI Department of History, history at iupui.edu<mailto:history at iupui.edu>.

IUPUI is an EEO/AA employer, M/F/D, and encourages applications from women and minority candidates. Individuals who require a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in the application process must provide sufficient advanced notice to Ms. Amy Schramm, 425 University Blvd., CA 504L, Indianapolis, IN 46202, (317) 274-5840.
