Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities (tenure-track)

The Department of English at the University of Notre Dame invites applications and nominations for a tenure-track position in the digital humanities. We prefer to appoint an assistant professor, although for exceptional candidates we will consider appointments at the tenured associate or full professor level.  We are looking for a literary scholar with demonstrated expertise in an aspect of digital humanities broadly construed, potentially including any of the following methods or approaches: history of text technologies / media archaeologies; critical digital studies; emerging media forms; cultural analytics/computational methods for interpretation; scholarly public engagement. We are eager to consider scholars whose work expands the archive by considering the experience of under-represented communities or literary traditions of the Global South, although other historical and generic areas of focus are welcome. This position is affiliated with Notre Dame’s new Institute for Data and Society and is part of a significant cross-disciplinary University-wide hiring initiative. 

Application Instructions

To apply, we ask candidates to submit only the following through Interfolio (apply.interfolio.com/78942):

  • Application letter
  • current cv

Informal inquiries and nominations should be directed to: Professor Elliott Visconsi, Chair of the Search Committee at eviscons@nd.edu

Applications must be received by Monday October 26, 2020 for full consideration. We expect to conduct all interviews via Zoom. Candidates may be asked to provide additional materials later in the review process, including a writing sample (or equivalent access to works of digital scholarship) and a dossier of references (or for senior candidates, the names of referees). Please do not send any additional materials unless requested.  Finalists will be invited to visit campus for departmental interviews, contingent upon public health and applicable University policies.
