The Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations seeks to hire a Webmaster. SHAFR is embarking on a redesign of its website and reinvigoration of its web presence. The Webmaster will work together with the SHAFR President, the Committee on SHAFR and the Web, and others as the organization works with a web designer to upgrade the website. Once the website is redesigned, the Webmaster will be responsible for on-going management of the website, including the SHAFR blog.
The Webmaster will play a pivotal role in the next phase of SHAFR's web presence. With a web redesign, SHAFR hopes to serve more effectively the communities of college and university scholars and teachers, secondary school educators, and interested lay people, as well the media and policymakers.
A more robust website, tied more effectively to the online content of Diplomatic History, Passport, and the Oxford University Press website-and possibly associated with other content providers-could link articles, papers, and assorted media to primary source documents, syllabi, and lesson plans, and thereby better serve undergraduate and secondary school classrooms, as well as the needs of scholars. A reinvigorated blog has the potential to heighten the profile of both the organization and its members, providing historical context to contemporary policy concerns.
The Webmaster's compensation will be $5000 per year. The position will be held for a three year renewable term.
Applicants should submit their c.v. and a cover letter that details their background diplomatic history, their involvement with SHAFR, their web experience, and their vision for the future of SHAFR's new website. Ph.D. preferred for this position, but advanced graduate students will also be considered. The deadline for applications is October 31. Applications should be directed to the Chair of the SHAFR Webmaster Search Committee, Mary L. Dudziak, Emory University, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
