Cambridge Digital Humanities seeks to recruit an Assistant Professor in Digital Humanities, to be appointed to the Faculty of English. The appointee will take up the post in September 2024. 

Cambridge Digital Humanities (CDH) is a thriving research centre reaching across multiple faculties in the School of Arts and Humanities and School of Humanities and Social Sciences. We also have strong  associations with Cambridge's many museums and collections, work closely with the  University Library, and have links to many other research centres.

The successful applicant will be expected to be a committed digital humanities researcher with a specialism in any area of Digital Humanities, which we conceive as an expansive and intrinsically inter-disciplinary field.

We particularly welcome applicants with specialisms in Digital Media Arts, Computational Literature, Digital Justice, Critical Data Studies, Archive and Memory Studies, Collections, and Global Digital Humanities.

The successful applicant will conduct original research with international reach and  significance. They will publish at the appropriate level and collaborate to attract significant external funding. They will have significant teaching experience and ideally have experience of academic leadership roles.

The primary responsibilities of the role will be to CDH. The successful applicant will have a commitment to Digital Humanities as their interdisciplinary home, and through their research, teaching, and service, they will make a substantial contribution to the range, scope and depth of the work at CDH and will contribute to building its reputation as a centre of excellence for DH research.

They will be an integral member of the CDH research community, working alongside a diverse group of researchers, collaborating in generating and prosecuting research projects, and helping us build our international reputation as leaders in this field. 

The successful applicant will contribute to postgraduate teaching and supervision on the MPhil in Digital Humanities, and they will also take on doctoral students in CDH. The role is likely to involve undergraduate teaching in future years as CDH develops. They will be expected to take on course management and other leadership roles on the CDH degrees.

Candidates should have a completed PhD (must have been awarded by the closing date) and have an established or emerging record of research and publication in a subject area relevant to Digital Humanities. They will have teaching experience at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The successful applicant will support and maintain the University's national and international reputation for excellence in research.
