The AHRC-funded research project Dunham’s Data: Digital Methods for Dance Historical Inquiry (Principal Investigator - Kate Elswit, Co Investigator - Harmony Bench - OSU) seeks to hire a Digital Humanities Postdoctoral Research Assistant. The role holder will work with the PI and CI in structuring data and development, design, and implementation of interactive visualizations and other tools for analysis. For this role, we seek an early career researcher from any arts or humanities field, whose research involves a significant digital component of data collection and analysis. We expect demonstrated evidence of coding ability (see Job Information for details).
