        Subject: postdocs (Cambridge)

Cambridge Digital Humanities seeks to appoint two full time postdoctoral
researchers in Digital Humanities. The posts will run for three years from
Spring 2020.

The successful candidates will undertake a research project with support
and mentoring from the CDH team. Applicants should demonstrate how their
work intersects with, and develops, the expanded field of the Digital
Humanities, DH methods, empirical work, critical theorization, and research
focusing on key issues in digital transformation as it affects cultural
forms and practices, societies, archival issues, and knowledge production
and dissemination.

We will accept proposals for projects of all kinds. We particularly welcome
proposals exploring the following areas:
--  Computational Humanities
--  DH and Decolonization
--  AI and DH
--  Big Data and Algorithmic Justice
--  Social Justice, Computational Bias, and DH Approaches
--  Visual Culture
--  Environmental Humanities
--  Digital Musicology
--  DH and New Media

CDH resources include developer support, programming assistance, library
expertise, and subject-specific/discipline-specific research expertise
across a range of fields. Applicants should indicate resources they would
draw on at Cambridge to develop and deliver their project. They should
demonstrate that their proposed project can be delivered within the
three-year time scale of the post.

Applicants may have doctoral qualifications in Digital Humanities, but
applications are also welcomed from postdoctoral researchers in cognate
areas (e.g. including English, History, Digital Media/Film Studies,
Linguistics, Computer Science, Sociology, Music, Philosophy, Modern
Languages, Art History, Asian and Middle Eastern Studies). Applicants
should demonstrate an engagement with DH issues, familiarity with DH
methods, and an understanding of the changes in epistemic cultures digital
transformation produces. High level technical skills are not necessarily
required but may be part of the application. Applicants must hold, or have
submitted, a PhD by the time of selection.

The successful candidate will be affiliated to CDH and may be invited join
a faculty/department or research institute.

These fellowships are supported by the Issac Newton Trust whose generous
support is acknowledged.
