Assistant or Associate Professor and Director, Digital Studies Center
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||New Jersey, United States|
|Position:||Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Director|
Rutgers University-Camden seeks to appoint a tenure-track assistant professor or tenured associate professor as founding Director for the Digital Studies Center in the College of Arts and Sciences. The center will serve as the campus’s hub for scholarship and interdisciplinary research in digital studies. Candidate’s field of expertise is open, but should be knowledgeable about interdisciplinary work involving the humanities, fine arts, computing and social sciences.
This is a ten-month, tenure-track faculty position with teaching and administrative responsibilities. The founding Director will help shape the vision for the Rutgers-Camden Digital Studies Center consistent with the academic mission of the College of Arts and Sciences. The director will coordinate an interdisciplinary academic program in digital studies for undergraduate and graduate students. Additional administrative responsibilities include assisting with fundraising, as well as oversight for budgeting, planning, staffing and daily operations for the center.
Rutgers-Camden is a research campus with a normative 2-2 teaching load for non-administrative faculty. The director position will include a reduced teaching load to compensate for administrative responsibilities. The center’s collaborative academic program, projects, and research will reach across the disciplines in myriad ways, such as faculty seminars, conferences, publications, and digital media endeavors. Candidates should have demonstrated digital scholarly output. History of successful grant funding is also preferable.
Rutgers-Camden is the southern campus of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and an AAU institution. Located in the waterfront district just across the Delaware River from downtown Philadelphia, the campus enrolls more than 6,800 students at the bachelor’s, master’s, J.D., and Ph.D. levels, and has a robust commitment to civic engagement.
