of the search committee will be glad to answer any questions. I include

*************************************
Here's the full posting:

The College of Social Sciences and Humanities (CSSH) at Northeastern
University invites applications and nominations for several tenured or
tenure-track faculty positions (Assistant, Associate or Full Professor)
in Digital Humanities with a specialization in literary, rhetorical,
cultural, or historical studies. Home departments may include History;
English; Cultures, Societies, and Global Studies or other units within
CSSH. Opportunities exist for affiliations with other programs, such as
Africana Studies, WomenÂ’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and colleges,
including the Khoury College of Computer Sciences or the College of
Arts, Media and Design. The expected start date is Fall 2020.

In association with the NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks, this
cluster search builds on Northeastern's prominence in the digital
humanities, computational social science, and network science. The NULab
fosters collaborative work across disciplines in a community that
includes faculty, students, staff, and an extended research network. The
NULab supports scholars working with large-scale data analysis and
visualization, text encoding and digital editing, digital archive
creation, new modes of scholarly communication, information design, and
more. Researchers investigate a range of topics from embedded slave
narratives in early Caribbean books to the constitution of activist
networks in social media. Northeastern's digital humanities community
also draws on strong relationships with the library's Digital
Scholarship Group and the Boston Research Center, and on collaborative
ties with researchers in computer science, design, game studies, and
network science.

With this cluster hire we seek to strengthen our faculty in support of
Northeastern's graduate certificate program, as well as our growing
undergraduate curriculum in Digital Humanities. We welcome applications
from those engaged in research areas and technologies across the digital
humanities domain and are particularly interested in research that
explores the critical and cultural significance of tools and methods in
the context of questions of race, gender, sexuality and politics.

Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent terminal degree at the
beginning of the appointment and a record of scholarship and teaching
commensurate with rank. Successful applicants will have the ability to
initiate and lead substantive research projects, engage with
practitioners and communities outside of the academy, and promote
innovation in teaching and experiential learning that is central to a
Northeastern University education. We seek candidates who are committed
to building an inclusive and diverse community of students, faculty, and
staff, and we especially encourage applications from scholars who are
under-represented in the field of digital humanities.

Applicants should submit a CV and letter of interest along with the
names of three references. Candidates will be notified before their
references are contacted. From finalists, the search committee will
request writing samples, links to examples of digital work, and evidence
of teaching excellence.

To apply, please go to https://cssh.northeastern.edu/faculty-positions
and click on the link for full-time positions or full-time
interdisciplinary positions or if viewing this description on the
Northeastern University website, click Apply Now. Please address
nominations and inquiries about the position to Professor Julia
Flanders, Chair of the Digital Humanities Search, at
j.flanders@northeastern.edu. Review of applications will begin October
1, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled.

The College of Social Sciences and Humanities is a leader in the
Experiential Liberal Arts. Founded in 1898, Northeastern University is a
dynamic and highly selective urban research university in the center of
Boston. Grounded in its signature co-op program, Northeastern provides
unprecedented global experiential learning opportunities. The College is
strongly committed to fostering excellence through diversity and
enthusiastically welcomes nominations and applications from members of
groups under-represented in academia.
