    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
