The School of Arts and Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania invites
applications for a tenure-track assistant professor appointment in digital
humanities, broadly interpreted to embrace the humanistic social sciences.
We are interested in exceptional scholars who make innovative, pioneering
use of digital technologies to study textual, geographic, aural, visual, or
spatial aspects of the humanities.  The successful candidate’s primary
appointment will be in one of the following departments in the humanities
or the humanistic social sciences:  Classical Studies, English, German,
Music, or Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations.   Secondary
appointments in other departments can be arranged, as appropriate.   This
appointment will be the first in a cluster of appointments in various
aspects of the digital humanities, a cluster meant to support the newly
established Price Lab for the Digital Humanities.  The successful candidate
should therefore have a strong interest in building such a program and in
interacting with scholars from other disciplines whose research lies within
the overarching theme of digital humanities.   The successful candidate
will teach courses in her or his home department and will participate in
the development of curriculum pertinent to the theme of the cluster.

Applications should be submitted on-line at http://facultysearches. and include a curriculum vitae, a research
statement that includes the candidate's perspective on how she or he fits
into one of the core departments, links to no more than three journal
publications, and the contact information for three individuals who will be
contacted by the University with instructions on how to submit a letter of
recommendation. Review of applications will begin November 3, 2016, and
will continue until the position is filled.

The School of Arts and Sciences is strongly committed to Penn’s Action Plan
for Faculty Diversity and Excellence and to creating a more diverse faculty
(for more information see:
