Brown University invites applications for a one-year Diversity in Digital Publishing Postdoctoral Research Associate appointment funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. As a member of the Center for Digital Scholarship, based at the Brown University Library, the postdoctoral fellow will work as part of a multi-skilled team of experts to advance a set of public-facing faculty digital publications currently under development as part of the Mellon-supported Digital Publications Initiative. The fellow will help conceptualize, research, and administer a group of projects that relate directly to the history and experience of oppressed or marginalized peoples, are intended to engage both scholarly audiences and the wider public, and consider the political and cultural concerns of scholarly work that draws on and interprets traumatic pasts. The Fellow will also teach one course during the academic year in digital humanities or the fellow’s home discipline (departmental affiliation will be negotiated as appropriate).
Scholars who have received their degrees within the last five years and pursue work in the humanities and the humanistic social sciences are eligible to apply. The one-year position, with a preferred start date of July 1, 2022 (or by September 1), provides a $60,000 stipend plus benefits as well as $5,000 in research funds.
To receive full consideration, applications should be submitted by January 31, 2022, to http://apply.interfolio.com/99624
