Humanities in a Digital World Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at USC
The University of Southern California Humanities in a Digital World Program seeks applications for a two-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in any area of the humanities with a focus on using digital tools. The annual salary will be $70,000, plus benefits and a yearly $2000 research/travel allowance.
The USC Humanities in a Digital World Program aims to explore how humanities scholarship can evolve through consideration of the meaning of humanities research in an increasingly digital world. The Program aims to provide training for scholars from a wide range of humanities disciplines in emerging digital technologies as a way to advance scholarship in history, art history, literature, religion, or philosophy. A key component of the program is a required three-week summer boot camp in which each postdoctoral fellow will participate in training in digital skills, including GIS, data visualization, meta-data creation, and Scalar multi-media authoring and publishing. These boot camps will be taught by faculty from the USC Spatial Sciences Institute, the USC Libraries, and the USC School of Cinematic Arts. These sessions will be coordinated by the office of the Divisional Dean for the Humanities in USC Dornsife.
The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to present work in panels at public symposia. Each fellow will teach three courses over two academic years.
