        Subject: Digital Scholarship Research Developer at the Stanford Libraries

Dear Colleagues,

The Stanford Libraries DH and Computational Social Science organization is
looking for a research developer.  It's a full-time, permanent position (or at
least as permanent as anything in this world), and part of a wonderful group.

A truncated job description is below; more details and application instructions
are available at http://m.rfer.us/STANFORDB3_4zM

I'm not the hiring manager for this position, but do have long experience with
the group and would be happy to answer informal questions about the job, or to
make introductions as necessary.


The Stanford University Libraries' Center for Interdisciplinary Digital
Research (CIDR) is seeking a full-time Digital Scholarship Research Developer to
build sophisticated, sustainable, and generalizable projects and platforms in
order to support interdisciplinary research in the computational social sciences
and digital humanities at Stanford. Regular tasks will include analyzing,
designing, developing, deploying, modifying, and maintaining computer programs
in systems of moderate size and complexity or segments of larger systems.

Reporting to the head of CIDR, the successful candidate will join a
distinguished and widely recognized team of software developers and academic and
library technologists with combined decades of expertise in the computational
social sciences and digital humanities. Its activities support research and
teaching in these fields for the Stanford community. CIDR collaborates both with
individual faculty and with Departments, Centers and Institutes engaged in
digital research, such as the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA);
the Institute for Research in the Social Sciences (IRiSS); the Stanford
Humanities Center; and the Center for Computational Social Sciences. CIDR is
also a hub for collaboration and communication among social science and digital
humanities scholars, library curators, and professional developers, promoting a
sense of shared purpose in support of the Stanford mission of research and
