Job Announcement "Digital Humanist (Data Analyst / Web Developer)"

Dear colleagues,

Please allow us to draw your attention to a job announcement from the 
Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities, a research department of the 
Austrian Academy of Sciences:

More information about the announcement can be found here:

        From: Daniel O'Donnell <daniel.odonnell at uleth.ca>
        Subject: Tenure Track Position, Postcolonial or Modernism. Digital Humanities very welcome. April 15 Deadline.

The English department in the University of Lethbridge has just released an ad for a Tenure Track job in Postcolonial or Modernism. It is so new that the official ad is not yet up on the Uleth Website. Here's a link to a posting on my blog with the details: 

http://people.uleth.ca/~daniel.odonnell/Blog/university-of-lethbridge-tenure-track-job-postcolonial-or-modernism-dh-welcome-deadline-april-15. I've also reproduced the text below.

The position is either Postcolonial or Modernism. We are at the beginning of a rebuilding phase after a series of retirements and need both. Although the ad does not specifically require expertise in Digital Humanities, we are certainly very interested in hearing from people in DH.

DH is one of two strategic priorities in the Faculty of Arts and Science and is well supported throughout the University. There are several new initiatives that are going ahead that will be of interest to Digital Humanists, including, the development of new Centres for Studies in the Digital Age and 3D Visualisation. Lethbridge is also home to the Lethbridge Journal Incubator, Global Outlook::Digital Humanities, and, though less relevant in this case, Digital Medievalist. Perhaps most importantly, the Digital Humanities is a major part of the new $3 million THINC project, a project that involves the development of a series of labs focussed on data visualisation, digital fabrication, and 3D visualisation and capture that has been proposed for the new Science facility.

If you have any questions about applying for this position, please feel free to contact the chair, Adam Carter (a.carter at uleth.ca<mailto:a.carter at uleth.ca>) or me (daniel.odonnell at uleth.ca<mailto:daniel.odonnell at uleth.ca>).

The deadline for applications is April 15, 2014.


The Department of English at the University of Lethbridge invites applications for a probationary (tenure-track) position at the Assistant Professor rank to begin 1 July 2014, subject to budgetary approval. The position is in the area of Twentieth-Century Literature with specialization in either Post-Colonial Literature or Modernism.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. at or near completion and teaching experience at the university level. The University aspires to hire individuals who have demonstrated considerable potential for excellence in teaching, research and scholarship. New faculty members are eligible to apply for university funding in support of research and scholarly activities.

The position is open to all qualified applicants, although preference will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada. The University is an inclusive and equitable campus encouraging applications from qualified women and men including persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities and Aboriginal persons.

The Department of English is a dynamic unit committed to excellence in research and teaching with faculty members who represent a wide range of disciplinary interests.  Members of the department are involved in collaborative and interdisciplinary research initiatives within the University of Lethbridge and beyond.  The university houses the Institute for Child and Youth Studies (I-CYS), the Centre for Oral History and Tradition (COHT), and a new centre in Digital Humanities is currently under development.  The University of Lethbridge is the home of Global Outlook::Digital Humanities (globaloutlookdh.org) and the editorial offices of the scholarly journal Digital Studies/Le champ numérique. Students have the opportunity to have their writing published in the university’s Whetstone magazine and to participate in two annual student writing competitions.  The department is dedicated to ensuring the continued quality of its strong undergraduate program and its emerging graduate program.

Located in southern Alberta, near the Rocky Mountains, Lethbridge offers a sunny, dry climate that is agreeably mild for the prairies, excellent cultural and recreational amenities and attractive economic conditions. Founded in 1967, the University has an enrollment of over 8,000 students from around the world. Our student body has grown by 50 percent in the last 10 years, phenomenal growth among institutions in Canada. Despite this growth, we have remained true to who we are - student-focused, research-intensive, and grounded in liberal education. For more information about the University, please visit our web site at www.uleth.ca http://www.uleth.ca .

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, transcripts, outlines of courses previously taught, teaching evaluations, publication reprints or preprints, a statement of teaching philosophy and research interests, and three letters of reference.
