The Department of Digital Humanities wishes to appoint a Lecturer (Education and Research) Digital Culture and Race.
We are seeking a passionate researcher and educator with an excellent track record, and/or demonstrable potential to work towards such a record, for this critical new post. Research engagement with one of more of the Department’s areas of interest in is required. These include, non-exhaustively, decolonisation, critical data analysis, race studies, Black history and culture and algorithmic bias. The postholder will be expected to design a comprehensive research agenda around one or more of these topics, and/or drawing on their own research, which will contribute not only to decolonisation and anti-racism activities in King’s, but in the wider field of Digital Humanities and Culture. This is a major opportunity for a suitably qualified candidate to contribute to our emerging teaching and research profile in this critical area through their research and publications, and through grant capture.
The postholder will be required to contribute original and innovative teaching at postgraduate and undergraduate levels, and to undertake supervision of Masters and PhD students in the field, and to the development and delivery of our new parallel online version of this programme.
Candidates will contribute to the life and reputation of the Department, the Faculty, and the College through taking on an appropriate administrative role, contributing to internal networks and collaborations, taking part in external national and international activities, and undertaking industry and public engagement where appropriate.
King’s is committed to equality, diversity, and inclusion and through this appointment it is our aim to develop candidate pools that include applicants from all backgrounds and communities. We particularly encourage applications from women, people from global majority ethnicities, LGBTQ+ identities, and from people with disabilities.
This post is an open-ended position with a probation period, which is usually three years.
This post will be offered on a full-time contract from 1 July 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter.
