Carleton College, Digital Arts and the Humanities
Visiting Assistant Professor or Instructor in Digital Arts & Humanities
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Minnesota, United States|
|Position:||Non-Tenure Track Faculty|
Carleton College invites applications for a full or part-year visiting position at the rank of assistant professor or instructor in our vibrant new Digital Arts & Humanities program for the 2023–2024 academic year. We seek candidates with (or within a year of completing) a Ph.D. in Digital Humanities or another relevant arts, humanities, or social science discipline; demonstrated expertise in DH methods; and a strong commitment to teaching undergraduates in a liberal arts environment. Carleton’s DGAH program bridges traditional divides between the humanities, arts, and computational sciences by emphasizing multidisciplinary collaboration and experimentation while encouraging students to both practice and critically reflect on digital creation and interpretation. This position will involve teaching at least one section of an introductory core course and at least one upper level course in advanced digital arts & humanities methods, theory, or applied project-based learning. The position has flexibility both on the start date (September 1, 2023 or January 1, 2024), and on how those courses are arranged within the three 10-week terms of Carleton's academic year. We are particularly interested in applicants who will strengthen the program’s commitment to students from underrepresented groups.
Carleton is a highly selective liberal arts college with a student body of approximately 2,000. Located in the thriving two-college town of Northfield, Minnesota, it is forty-five miles from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, in easy reach of a vibrant metropolitan area that is home to three million people and rich cultural resources. Carleton actively encourages community engagement and public scholarship, and we are particularly interested in candidates committed to teaching a diverse student body. Carleton College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, ethnicity, religion, sex, national origin, marital status, veteran status, actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, status with regard to public assistance, disability, or age in providing employment or access to its educational facilities and activities. Carleton is committed to developing its faculty to better reflect the diversity of our student body and American society. Women and members of underrepresented minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, official graduate school transcript, at least one sample syllabus, and a teaching statement that includes comments on working with a diverse student body. In your letter of application, please describe your preparation for teaching the introductory course as well as the elective courses you propose and your qualifications for teaching them. All materials should be submitted via Carleton College’s career portal (go.carleton.edu/carletonjobs) and received by February 28, 2023 for fullest consideration. After passing through an initial screening process, applicants may receive a request for the contact information for three references, including at least one who is able to specifically address teaching experience.
