An Foras Feasa, the humanities institute of the National University of
Ireland Maynooth, is delighted to announce funding for two John & Pat
Hume PhD fellowships in the area of digital humanities for PhD
candidates beginning the 2014-15 academic year.

Funding is for a four-year PhD, consisting of a first year of taught
modules, followed by three years of research. Funding covers EU fees and
a €5000 yearly stipend. Additional funding of up to €3000 may also be
available in the form of tutorials, lectures, or by working on an
existing DH research project.

PhDs may register in An Foras Feasa for the PhD. Alternatively, students
may decide on joint supervision between An Foras Feasa and a member of
staff in a humanities department.

Candidates will join a supportive and vibrant DH community. Current DH
projects include The Digital Repository of Ireland, The DixIT ITN,
Letters of 1916, and Contested Memories: The Battle of Mount Street Bridge.

        Subject: Job: Humanities Curator at NYPL


This will be a really great job, I think!  Its title is not "digital"
curator (because well, virtually all curation is more or less digital these
days), but if you read the job description, you'll see that the focus is
strongly on the digital humanities.

        From: "Pugh, Emily" <E-Pugh at NGA.GOV>
        Subject: Project Head for Digital Art History, National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC (deadline 4/1)


CASVA, the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts at the National Gallery of Art, seeks a research associate with a PhD in art history to serve as Project Head for Digital Art History for the academic years 2014-2016.  Candidates should have proven experience with digital art history projects and be able to provide guidance in the use of digital tools and methods (including database construction, website development, online publishing, and GIS mapping) for enriching and expanding existing CASVA research projects (seehttp://www.nga.gov/content/ngaweb/research/casva/research-projects.html).

The project head for digital art history provides the CASVA deans with technical support and guidance for their research and special projects, including conceptualizing and writing proposals for computer-based, scholarly research projects and publications. This involves working to design applications that meet their specific scholarly goals and articulating them to the Gallery’s technical staff. The project head for digital art history also meets regularly with research teams and other Gallery staff, and creates production schedules to ensure the development and maintenance of digital projects.

The position is a full-time salaried appointment with a two-year term and option of renewal for a third year. Research Associates are employees of the National Gallery of Art and have full use of the Gallery’s library, research facilities, and services. As members of CASVA’s scholarly community they are expected to participate in ongoing meetings and programs at the Center.  They are also encouraged to pursue their own scholarly research.

Applicants should have a PhD in art history or expect to complete all requirements for the PhD by September 2014.  Preference is given to applicants who have not already held a regular faculty appointment.  All applicants must be proficient in one or more European languages, and demonstrate an ability to work collaboratively.

Stipend: $40,000 per annum (plus additional allowances for travel and research; mandatory leave and health benefits)

Applicants should submit electronically a cover letter and curriculum vitae to the Selection Committee to casva at nga.gov. Two letters of recommendation should be sent directly by email attachment to casva at nga.gov.  Review of applications will begin on April 1, 2014, and continue until the position is filled.
