    *Digital Humanities Postdoctoral Position at Bucknell University*
    Applications are now being accepted for a two-year postdoc position in DH
    working as part of the Digital Humanities team at Bucknell. In particular
    we are looking for candidates with strong experience working in
    collaborative research teams, and with skill sets including database
    creation and management, coding in Python, JavaScript, and other applicable
    programming languages, and/or web application and GUI design.

    *Application deadline is January 15, 2019!*

    More details below.

    Five years ago Bucknell made a long-term investment in digital scholarship
    for faculty and student initiatives. Humanities faculty have, as a result,
    made significant strides in expanding their individual and collaborative
    research to include digital forms of analysis and publication. The
    [successful applicant] will join a team committed to supporting humanities
    faculty from across the discipline, including Classics, Film & Media
    Studies, History, Languages, Cultures and Linguistics, and Philosophy.
    Faculty DH projects, funded with internal and external grant support, range
    from those in development to those in implementation mode, and represent a
    range of approaches to DH, from textual editing to data visualization.

    This is a 12-month position. The salary is $50,000/year plus benefits.

    To apply, please submit a cover letter, C.V., three letters of
    recommendation, and a portfolio of work in DH via the online portal at by January 15, 2019.

    Appointed for two years (with the possibility of a one-year extension)
    beginning in January 2019, the Bucknell Digital Humanities Postdoctoral
    Fellow will work with faculty in the division of the Arts and Humanities to
    initiate, advance, present and complete Digital Humanities research
    projects via the application of critical computing skills and methods. This
    is primarily a research-support position. However, it will involve
    occasional supervision of undergraduate students engaged in faculty
    research projects. The Fellow will be based in the new Hildreth-Mirza Hall,
    which houses the Bucknell Humanities Center, the Bucknell University Press,
    the Griot Institute for Africana Studies, and a robust DH infrastructure (e.g.,
    the Humanities Lab).

    The successful candidate will have a PhD in a humanities field, a
    concentration in DH (or equivalent), and experience with: database creation
    and management; coding in Python, JavaScript, and other applicable
    programming languages; and web application and GUI design. This is a
    position that requires excellent teamwork and project coordination skills

    Ideally, candidates will also have experience working on collaborative DH
    research projects, familiarity with relevant grant-seeking processes, and
    their own active DH research agendas.
