Humanities in a Digital World Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at USC

The University of Southern California Humanities in a Digital World Program seeks applications for a two-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowship for 2020-2022 in any area of the humanities with a focus on using digital tools. The annual salary will be $70,000, plus benefits and a yearly $2000 research/travel allowance.

The Program explores how humanities scholarship can evolve and thrive in an increasingly digital world. We provide training for scholars from a wide range of humanities disciplines in emerging digital technologies, while still preserving the essential integrity of each scholar’s discipline-based research.  Each fellow will attend a required three-week summer boot camp to receive intensive training in digital skills, including GIS, data visualization, meta-data creation, and Scalar multi-media authoring and publishing. These boot camps will be coordinated by the office of the Divisional Dean of the Humanities in USC Dornsife and taught by faculty from the USC Spatial Sciences Institute, the USC Libraries, and the USC School of Cinematic Arts.

During the fellowship period, each fellow will have the opportunity to present their work at symposia aimed to demonstrate how digital techniques can shape research, writing, and presentation of evidence in the humanities. In addition, each fellow will teach three courses over two academic years.

The fellowship is open to candidates with a Ph.D. received between July 1, 2017 and July 1, 2020.

To apply, complete an application in our secure portal. Applicants will be asked to provide the names and email addresses of two referees who will be prompted via email to upload letters of recommendation.  After submitting contact and education information, applicants will need to upload the following materials as pdf files in the application portal:

  • CV
  • Cover letter/ research statement (not exceeding 3 single-spaced pages)
  • Dissertation abstract
  • Writing sample

The application deadline is Friday, December 13, 2019 at 12noon PST.
Applicants should complete applications with enough time to allow referees to upload letters prior to the deadline.

Inquiries should be directed to Dr. Amy Braden via email at digitalhumanities@dornsife.usc.edu
