The Penn State University Libraries in partnership with the College of the
Liberal Arts seek a creative, forward-thinking scholar for the new position of
Digital Humanities Research Designer. The Digital Humanities Research Designer
will be familiar with a range of technologies and have direct experience
bringing digital approaches to bear on research and teaching. The scholar in
this position will work as an intellectual partner with faculty, students, and
staff in the College of the Liberal Arts.

  
The successful candidate will collaborate with humanities faculty and library
colleagues to expand modes of humanistic research through emerging and
existing technologies. In providing research project support and conducting
workshops on the use of various tools, for example, the Digital Humanities
Research Designer will be able to translate and share ideas and concepts
effectively across diverse interdisciplinary audiences. The Digital Humanities
Research Designer will maintain currency in the field and may pursue his or
her own research to do so.

  
The person in this position will engage in national and/or international
initiatives or other professional activities promoting the development of a
shared humanities research infrastructure. The Digital Humanities Research
Designer will play a critical role in building services and programs to
support the digital humanities at Penn State.

  
This is a fixed-term (multi-year), non-tenure track, 3-year appointment based
in the Publishing and Curation Services department within the University
Libraries. It carries the rank of Assistant Librarian. The position reports to
the Digital Content Strategist, but it will be jointly funded by the
University Libraries and the College of the Liberal Arts.

  
The University Libraries work in collaboration with multiple campus partners
as part of a growing program in support for emerging digital scholarship
needs. The Digital Humanities Research Designer appointment is part of Penn
State's "Humanities in a Digital Age" (HDA) initiative. HDA aims to enrich and
promote rigorous cross-disciplinary humanities scholarship and research; open
new opportunities for high caliber graduate placements in the humanities; and
enhance the undergraduate experience by providing students access to, and
support for, cutting-edge humanities research. The new services fostered by
this initiative will help graduate students and faculty carry out digitally
enriched scholarship in a wider range of fields. Working together, the
Libraries and the College of Liberal Arts intend to build a community of
practice for the digital humanities at Penn State through programming,
services, and research collaborations.
