National Endowment for the Humanities
Digital Humanities Initiative
DHI Update
October 11, 2007


The NEH has just announced that it is seeking to hire TWO (or more) new
program officers (known as "Humanities Administrators" in government
parlance). NEH program officers help to create and administer grant
programs. You will be working with scholars across the country (and
sometimes from around the world). You will select peer reviewers, chair
panels, read and review grant proposals, and recommend applications for
funding. Plus, you get to live in beautiful Washington, DC where all
the museums are free and money grows on trees! (OK, I made that last
part up).

NEH program officers generally hold advanced degrees in the humanities
and are encouraged to remain active in their field of study. Germane to
this list, I should note that more and more of the grants we make
involve technology and computing, so having experience in the digital
humanities is a big plus.

One of the openings is in our Division of Research and the other is in
our Division of Education (who are hiring at least one, perhaps more
people). Salaries are in the range of $66,767 - $103,220. You can read
further details about each position by checking out this web page:


Thank you -- I hope you will consider applying or sending this to
someone who might want to.

Keep Innovating!
