Eugene Lang College, the New School for Liberal Arts, is seeking a full-time, tenure-track Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities whose research and teaching in the humanities engages the digital era: its theory, culture, politics, and ideology, modes of distribution and consumption, or historicity.

The position will begin in September 2012, and the search is open to candidates with a Ph.D. (awarded no later than December 2011) in a range of fields, including cultural studies, media studies, literature, and history. Preference will be given to candidates whose work bridges disciplinary boundaries.

We are looking for an emerging scholar to help us reclaim and redefine the “digital humanities” as a space for new scholarly exchanges and pedagogies among allied disciplines. Candidates must have a strong facility in ethnographic, textual, theoretical, or historical methodologies. Areas of studies include, in no particular order: (1) Media archaeology; (2) Music cultures and sound practices; (3) Global subcultures/popular cultures; (4) Comparative literature; (5) Media and performance. The successful candidate will demonstrate the potential for excellence in research and teaching.

Please post cover letter, CV, and list of 3-5 referees at: Preference will be given to applications received by January 30, 2012. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
