The School of Arts Languages and Cultures at the University of Manchester invites applications for a permanent, full-time lectureship in Digital Humanities, tenable from 1 September 2018.

The School seeks an exceptional individual, who will play a key role in an exciting expansion of research, teaching and learning, professional development and knowledge-exchange activities at Manchester in the area of Digital Humanities. Based in the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures, the appointee will contribute to its current, ongoing development of innovative undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and collaborative teaching and research capacity.

You will provide the capacity for expansion and development in the area of Digital Humanities by supporting our existing commitments to excellence in taught programmes, postgraduate research supervision and professional development, and by leading teaching within the new Flexible Honours Minor in Digital Humanities, which will be launched in September 2018. There will also be an opportunity to contribute to postgraduate teaching in relevant subject areas.

Applications are welcomed from digital humanities specialists working in any of the subject areas of the School, and/or within the broader fields of digital humanities, digital cultures, digital heritage, and/or media studies. You will have an advanced and in-depth understanding of the field of digital humanities and/or digital culture/digital media, and advanced competencies and demonstrable experience in computational methods and approaches for the humanities. These may include heritage imaging, digital collections and exhibits, TEI-XML, data visualization, spatial humanities, textual analysis, text mining, social media analytics, and/or any other related area. You will be expected to make a strong contribution to the School’s research strategy, including through the publication of high-quality peer-reviewed research outputs and the potential to attract external research funding; to recruit and supervise PhD students; and to contribute to the management and administration of the Digital Humanities programme under the guidance of the Head of School and in discussion with the Faculty Lead for DH.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons. However, as black and minority ethnic (BME) candidates are currently under-represented at this level in this area, we would particularly welcome applications from BME applicants. All appointments will be made on merit.
