The Digital Humanities Lab (DHLab) at Yale University Library invites applications for three 12-month Postdoctoral Associate positions for the 2017-2018 academic year. We seek energetic and creative applicants who demonstrate innovative thinking and a proactive approach to the questions that digital humanities methods, approaches, tools, and theories raise in their academic disciplines.
The focus of these positions is on a research project defined by the applicant. Scholars with a background in any humanities discipline are eligible to apply; the committee especially encourages applicants with a research focus in:
- Visual Culture, Art, and/or History of Art
- Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Twentieth-Century European History and Literature, and/or Jewish Studies
Each Postdoctoral Associate will have a dedicated workspace in the DHLab in Sterling Memorial Library; the opportunity to collaborate with technical staff, including a DH Developer and UX Designer; and a budget for computing equipment, professional development, and relocation expenses. The Postdoctoral Associate's primary responsibility will be to his or her own research project. We also expect candidates will be active participants in the intellectual life of the DHLab. The Director of the Digital Humanities Lab will coordinate their integration into the DHLab.
