Humanities Computing Job at New York University
The Humanities Computing Group (HCG) at New York University works with
faculty, staff and graduate students to support the use of new technologies
in Humanities teaching and research. The HCG serves all humanities
departments and programs at the University as part of the central
Information Technology Services division.
Located in the heart of Greenwich Village in New York City, the HCG is a
small, energetic group actively involved in a number of exciting new
initiatives, including the establishment of a collaborative research center
for Humanities Computing, Arts Technology and Digital Libraries. We are
also piloting several Internet 2 projects in the Arts and Humanities, and
we will be the local hosts of ACH/ALLC 2001 - the international conference
of the Association for Computing in the Humanities and the Association for
Literary and Linguistic Computing.
We are pleased to announce that we have a position available in the HCG.
The post is for a Humanities Computing Specialist, with responsibility for
supporting and developing existing Humanities Computing facilities at NYU
as well as developing new projects which will exercise both content and
technology skills. Candidates should be graduates (an advanced degree in
the humanities is preferred) who enjoy working on challenging projects with
a motivated team of individuals in a collegial atmosphere, and should be
interested in investigating applications of new technology in the
Humanities. You will need sound technological knowledge, excellent
communication and interpersonal skills, and should be interested in an
opportunity to learn about the creation of digital projects in the
Humanities. This post would be ideal for candidates who are interested in a
career in Humanities Computing, Digital Libraries or Digital Scholarship.
This is a professional staff position with permanent funding, competitive
wages, and a very generous vacation and benefits package including tuition
waiver for part-time study. A detailed job description is available at
