With generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Five Colleges, Incorporated invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in Digital Humanities beginning in the academic year 2013-14. The position will be based at one of the consortium’s associated institutions (Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, and Smith colleges and the University of Massachusetts Amherst). While the Ph.D. field and the eventual assigned department(s) are open, we especially seek candidates engaged in interdisciplinary work in the humanities who bring to their research and teaching the theoretical, methodological, and technical practice of digital technologies. Along with fluency in the intellectual and theoretical challenges posed by the emerging field of digital humanities, we expect candidates to have experience in computational approaches to interpretation, whether the interpretive focus rests on performances, architectural or urban settings, texts, images, and/or other artifacts. Expertise could be in geographic information systems, visualization, text-mining or other modes of computer or internet-based work, as well as new modes of presenting work in electronic formats.
