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 athttps://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/5320.
