Digital Studies Mellon Postdoc Fellowship
The Davidson College Digital Studies program invites applications for a two-
year Andrew W. Mellon postdoctoral fellowship to begin August 1, 2014. Digital
Studies at Davidson is an interdisciplinary program that gives students and
faculty an opportunity to pursue coursework and research related to digital
tools, cultures, and practices. We seek a recent humanities Ph.D. with
significant experience in text or data analysis, GIS, sound studies, software
studies, new media studies, or another branch of digital humanities. The area
of specialization is open to any humanities discipline, including history,
literature, language studies, the arts, classics, philosophy, religious
studies, film and media studies, and gender and sexuality studies.
The postdoctoral fellow will teach one course per semester at the introductory
or advanced level. The fellow will also deliver an annual public lecture and
offer a public workshop on digital tools or approaches. The fellow will be
expected to provide guidance to student and faculty digital projects.
Davidson College offers research support to postdoctoral fellows, including
travel funding and access to the college's makerspace. Collaboration with
college librarians, archivists, and instructional technologists is strongly
encouraged. The director of Digital Studies will provide teaching and research
mentorship to the postdoctoral fellow.
