University of Texas at Austin, Asian Studies
Two Post-Doctoral Fellow Positions, Japanese Studies/Digital Humanities
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Texas, United States|
The Department of Asian Studies and the Department of History at the University of Texas at Austin invite applications for two post-doctoral fellows to work in an innovative Digital Humanities space, JapanLab (https://www.utjapanlab.com/). One position is available in Japanese literature, the second in Japanese history.
The post-doctoral fellowships, which are generously supported by the Japan Foundation and the College of Liberal Arts at UT, will run from September 2022 to August 2024. Fellows will be expected to teach a 1/1 course load or 4 courses across the life of the fellowship. At least two of these courses will be focused on Digital skills; the other two will incorporate DH skills into a Japan-content course in the discipline of literature or history, respectively. In addition, each semester the fellows will work alongside a team of three or four undergraduate students to design a fully functional digital project. In total, they will work with four undergraduate teams across the life of the fellowship. For more about the individual components of JapanLab see: https://www.utjapanlab.com/units
The two post-doctoral fellows will have a chance to work collaboratively in a unique program that sits at the intersection between Japanese Studies and Digital Humanities. They will work alongside students producing fully functional educational resources for use in the classroom while gaining new skills and insights into the growing field of Digital Humanities. Successful applicants will collaborate closely with the Directors of JapanLab: Dr. Kirsten Cather in the Department of Asian Studies, and Dr. Adam Clulow and Dr. Mark Ravina in the Department of History.
