Description

Digital Research Studio Director

The Claremont Colleges, located 35 miles east of Los Angeles, are seeking an energetic, innovative, collaborative, and highly organized individual to play a key leadership role in developing and supporting the Digital Humanities (DH) within the consortium. This position is funded by a five-year grant from the Andrew J. Mellon Foundation. The colleges are currently in Year 4; the award ends on September 30, 2019.  The purpose of the grant is to create and sustain an integrated system of support, training, and research that will make the consortium a model learning community where DH methods and tools inform the work of scholars and students at all levels. The funds are being used to host an annual set of DH programs and events; train faculty and educate students; support digitally-infused course development; and maintain the collaborative capstone effort known as the Digital Humanities Research Studio. This position offers a wonderful opportunity for a recently graduated Ph.D. in the Humanities, or an individual completing a post-doc, to gain valuable experience as a teacher, researcher, and grant administrator in a collaborative, consortial, academic environment. The salary is $84,872 p.a., prorated for the remainder of Year 4, rising to $87,418 p.a. in Year 5.  Full benefits package included.  Candidates applying by April 23, 2018 will be given first consideration.
