The Department of English and Comparative Literature at UNC Chapel Hill (http://englishcomplit.unc.edu/) seeks a digital humanist with experience in digital methods applied to an additional area of literary or rhetorical studies. Successful candidates will demonstrate a record of digital engagement either through project development, significant deployment of digital methods, and/or innovations in digital composing, publishing, or pedagogy.

The hire will participate in The Carolina Digital Humanities Initiative (http://digitalhumanities.unc.edu) and collaborate with the University’s Digital Innovation Lab (http://digitalinnovation.unc.edu/).
