Lead Developer (Stanford Literary Lab)
Stanford University
Stanford

The Stanford Literary Lab is a research group that specializes in the
computational and quantitative analysis of textual materials, particularly
Literature. Housed in the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA), the
Literary Lab maintains a roster of internal research projects, as well as a
set of collaborations, both within Stanford, and with other research centers
and scholars outside of the University, both nationally and internationally.
Work on these involves text mining, natural language processing tasks,
statistical modeling and visualization design. For more information on the
Literary Lab, please see: litlab.stanford.edu

  
JOB PURPOSE:

Execute all programming tasks, including programming, analyzing, designing,
developing, implementing, modifying, and maintaining computer programs. Work
on systems of moderate size and complexity or segments of larger systems.

  
Initially, this is a one-year fixed term position at 75% time. We seek to hire
a lead digital humanities developer who will provide close computational and
analytical support to current and future researchers at the lab. The lead
developer will work closely with lab members, both faculty and students, on
creating new analytical workflows on a project by project basis, and
developing and implementing code that supports the core research work of the
lab. Duties will include serving as the lead programmer on lab projects,
writing code for feature identification and extraction, designing new
visualizations for research outcomes, attending project and lab meetings on a
regular basis and maintaining the Lab's textual corpus repository, including
designing an interface and/or API to provide access to this material. As the
demands of individual projects at the lab are unique, the lead developer will
be responsible for designing ad hoc computational solutions on a case by case
basis, as well as developing multi-use programs that are accessible to
researchers in the humanities. As the Literary Lab is part of the larger
Stanford Digital Humanities community, the Lead Developer will also coordinate
his or her activities with members of the Center for Spatial and Textual
Analysis and its member research groups, including the Spatial History
Project, Humanities + Design and Text Technologies.

  
It is expected that the Lead Developer will dedicate a portion of their time
designing and implementing their own research projects, in keeping with the
research goals and mission of the Literary Lab and in close consultation with
lab directors. As a member of the Literary Lab and in accordance with our
research practices, the lead developer we seek to hire will also be credited
on lab publications for projects that they support.
