An exciting development at Trinity College this year was the receipt of a Mellon Foundation Grant for Arts, Humanities, and Digital Scholarship. This will bring lots of opportunities to faculty and students across campus.

Information Services is delighted to be able to say that as part of this grant, we are hiring a digital humanities postdoc to work closely with Christina Boyles (our recently-hired digital scholarship coordinator) and Jason Jones (um, me) to develop undergraduate offerings in the digital humanities.

Projects that the successful candidate might find themselves working on might include: supporting faculty research projects in the digital humanities; developing training programs on DH tools or methods in conjunction with other IS staff; researching undergraduate digital humanities credentials, such as certificates; teaching; or other possibilities not yet envisioned. (Not all at once! The idea is that there are a wide range of opportunities for the successful candidate both to get involved on campus *and* to position themselves well for the job market.)

The disciplinary focus is less important than a deep familiarity with digital humanities methods and tools. The position is full-time and benefits-eligible, and is located, as I’ve mentioned, in Information Services (the merged IT/library) rather than an academic department. The position is funded for 2 years.

Here is the link to the official job posting. We do anticipate beginning the review of applicants by the end of March.

If you have any questions, please contact Christina Boyles & Jason Jones.
