Apologies for cross-postings.

Lehigh University seeks applications for a two-year Mellon Postdoctoral
Research Scholar in digital humanities and community engagement beginning
August 2015. The annual salary is $50,000 with full benefits.

We seek a postdoctoral scholar well-versed in digital media, methods and
technologies, with scholarly interest in one or more of the following
areas: documentary studies (film or other), community engagement, urban
studies and social justice. The scholar will pursue digital humanities
scholarship, teach one undergraduate course each semester, contribute to
workshops in partnership with the Center for Innovation in Teaching and
Learning, and work one-on-one to help faculty integrate digital media into
their courses.

The goal is to drive expansion of an undergraduate humanities curriculum
that engages the local community, equips more faculty with enhanced skill
sets in digital humanities forms, amplifies undergraduate humanities
research, and leads to the development of an interdisciplinary
undergraduate minor in documentary studies.

The position is open to candidates with a Ph.D. received between August
2012 and August 2015. We seek scholars from a wide range of humanities
disciplines as well as the humanistic social sciences. Please submit a
cover letter, vita, dissertation abstract, project description, and contact
information for three academic references who will be prompted via email to
submit letters electronically. The deadline for receipt of all materials is
March 15, 2015. Please apply at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/5320.
Inquiries should be directed to Professor Ed Whitley: edw204 at lehigh.edu
