*Andrew W. Mellon Digital Humanities Postdoctoral Research Scholar at

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.

For more than a century, mighty Bethlehem Steel anchored Lehigh
University’s hometown, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Now that the Steel is gone,
Bethlehem is experiencing the economic, social and cultural transformations
of a city in transition to a post-industrial future.  Lehigh faculty, staff
and students have begun telling the city’s story using new digital media
forms, chronicling the near universal themes of a community grappling with
compelling issues of social justice and its own evolving history.

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 apply at
https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/5320 and 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. Inquiries should be directed to Professor Ed Whitley:
