The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (RRCHNM) at George Mason University is pleased to announce that we are seeking candidates for two (2) postdoctoral fellowships in digital history. These fellowships will begin in late August 2020.

These are one-year research postdoctoral fellowships with the possibility of renewal for one more year, depending on funding and performance. The primary responsibilities will include working with the staff and faculty at RRCHNM on existing projects and developing proposals for externally funded digital humanities projects that will be created at RRCHNM. Postdoctoral fellows will develop proposals out of their own research interests and expertise, in addition to collaborating with other investigators on proposals.

One postdoctoral fellow will spend a portion of their time on Tropy, a software project for archival research developed at RRCHNM and the rest of their time developing new projects. The other postdoctoral fellow will work for a portion of their time on other ongoing projects at the Center and the rest on new project ideas. In their cover letter, applicants should indicate which projects at the Center they are interested in contributing to and what expertise they would bring to our work and what new project ideas they are interested in developing.

Fellows who generate sufficient external funding to finance their position beyond the two years of the fellowship will have the possibility of being hired as research (non-tenure track) faculty at RRCHNM beyond the term of their fellowship.

Review of applications begins 1/22/2020.
