University of Texas Austin job search:

It is an exciting time to be part of the UT Libraries (UTL).  UTL has
recently undergone significant restructuring to enable new approaches in
support of the information and scholarly needs of our campus, including
prioritizing deep subject-based collaborations, innovative and
transformative spaces and services in support of research and teaching,
digital scholarship, and collections of distinction.  Anchored in rich
collections and supported by robust service infrastructures, the History
and Western European Studies Liaison Librarian will be well positioned to
develop new and curate existing collections, and to initiate, collaborate
on and/or facilitate transformations in higher education through
significant partnerships with their user communities.

The exceptional opportunities for studying History at the University of
Texas are well established and nationally recognized.  Grounded in a
dynamic faculty, a lively community of graduate students and researchers,
and vibrant research institutes and initiatives, such as the Institute for
Historical Studies, the university is a leading center for historical study
and training at the highest levels.  Support for History is a collaborative
effort, drawing upon both expertise and collections from across campus, for
example: the Harry Ransom Center for Humanities Research, the Briscoe
Center for American History, the Nettie Lee Benson Latin American
Collection, and UTL’s area studies liaisons and related National Resource
Centers and Institutes.  Geographically, the successful candidate in this
position will oversee American, Canadian and Western European History while
intellectually, s/he will oversee Historiography and the Histories of
Science and Medicine.  Learn more at:

The study of Western Europe at the University of Texas is anchored in both
tradition and innovation.  Supported by locally and federally-funded
research centers and institutes (the Harry Ransom Center for Humanities
Research, the Center for European Studies, British Studies and the Center
for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning, to name but a few),
UT promotes engagement with and investigation of Western Europe through the
disciplines (language & literature, history, economics, business,
anthropology, public policy, communications, radio/television/film, art &
art history, law, architecture, geography & the environment,
ethnomusiciology, religious studies, sociology and political science), a
host of faculty-led and affiliated study abroad programs, and increasingly,

Dear all,

UIUC is looking for an assistant design professor in visual
communication design:

I am moving there myself in January to take up the Petullo
professorship in design research, so we could be colleagues!

I am hoping they will be able to find someone with a PhD in design who
has an interest in advising graduate students. Please pass this along
to anyone who might be a good fit.

Best regards,
Stan Ruecker
