Hello all,

I thought I would remind everyone that the closing date for the
tenure-track position in Humanities Computing at the University of Alberta
is 14 January 2005. I've appended the advertisement for those who might be


Sean Gouglas

The University of Alberta
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

The Faculty of Arts, University of Alberta, invites applications for a
full-time continuing position, at the Assistant Professor level, commencing
July 1, 2005, in the area of Humanities Computing. This position will
integrate into the existing M.A. in Humanities Computing programme, now
into its fourth year. The successful applicant will be associated with an
allied department in the Faculty, and some related undergraduate teaching
will be expected.

The M.A. programme emphasizes computing research methods and critical
thinking in the liberal arts and provides students with appropriate
technical skills to equip them well either for further study or for careers
in information management. Students in this programme develop a firm grasp
of the fundamental principles of computing methods in the humanities, an
understanding of how these methods contribute to restructuring or
transforming the disciplines, and an appreciation of the potential of these
methods for revisioning applications in computer science. Graduates are
qualified to bridge the territory between computer specialist and project
director or manager. More information on the M.A. in Humanities Computing
is available at <http://huco.ualberta.ca/>http://huco.ualberta.ca/

Applicants will present demonstrated evidence of excellence in the conduct,
reporting, and dissemination of research on the application of cutting edge
approaches to humanities disciplines. Principal areas of investigation may
include: knowledge representation; visual communication design; new media;
hypertext; text corpora; text encoding and analysis; computational
linguistics; statistical models; and broad library and research-based work
that focuses on significant issues of textuality; interfaces; and
information browsing and retrieval. In short, applicants should be involved
in work that offers innovative and substantial applications and uses for
humanities computing-based teaching, research and practice.

Salary (as per Collective Agreement) will be commensurate with
qualifications and experience.

An application package, including: a letter of application; a curriculum
vitae; copies of undergraduate and graduate transcripts; and the names,
institutional addresses and email addresses of three references who have
been invited to write on the applicant's behalf, should be sent to:

Dr. Rick Szostak, Associate Dean (Academic), Faculty of Arts, University of
Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada T6G 2E5, Phone: 780-492-9132
Email: <mailto:rick.szostak_at_ualberta.ca>rick.szostak_at_ualberta.ca.

The closing date for applications is: January 14, 2005.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and
permanent residents will be given priority.

The University of Alberta hires on the basis of merit. We are committed to
the principle of equity in employment. We welcome diversity and encourage
applications from all qualified women and men, including persons with
disabilities, members of visible minorities, and Aboriginal persons.
