Are you an experienced digital humanities scholar-practitioner with a strong background in project management and public service? The University of Virginia Library seeks an energetic, adaptable leader for the digital consultation services and intellectual programming of our internationally-respected Scholars’ Lab. The ideal candidate is detail-oriented, eager to work collaboratively with diverse faculty and staff, and able to muster and effectively communicate UVa Library’s deep resources for digital scholarship.

This is a full-time, permanent managerial and professional staff position at UVa.
The University of Virginia Library is also seeking an experienced, versatile digital scholar and administrator to lead programs for graduate students in our internationally recognized Scholars’ Lab; home of the Praxis Program and a vibrant community of Graduate Fellows in Digital Humanities. For this position, the ideal candidate will have: deep familiarity with humanities scholarship and digital methods at the graduate level; an interest in experimental approaches to analysis, authoring, and publication; experience in teaching and administrative roles in higher education; and a commitment to the training of emerging scholars and alternative academic humanities professionals. Reporting to the Director of Digital Research and Scholarship for UVa Library, the Head of Scholars' Lab Graduate Programs joins an accomplished and forward-looking digital scholarship team, and is eligible for the self-directed research time that all of our staff members are granted for professional engagement and to pursue their own, often collaborative, R&D projects.
