University Lectureship in Digital Humanities

Cambridge Digital Humanities (CDH) is a thriving research centre reaching across the School of Arts and Humanities and School of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Cambridge. The post will be based in the Faculty of English, and we welcome applications from candidates whose DH work directly engages with English literature or other media. However, we also welcome other DH specialisms including: cultural analysis, archival cultures, film and visual cultures, digital media studies, digital methods, AI and humanities research, activism and critical media, race, decolonization and epistemic change.

The successful applicant will both conduct original research of international reach and significance, and convene the new CDH-led MPhil programme in Digital Humanities to be launched in September 2022. They will offer postgraduate teaching and supervision, and they will also take on doctoral students in CDH and the Faculty of English. The role is likely to involve UG teaching in future years as CDH develops. Primary responsibilities of the role will be to CDH.

Candidates should have a completed PhD and have an established or emerging record of exceptional research and publication in a relevant subject area. They will have teaching experience at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Informal enquiries are welcomed and should be directed to Professor Caroline Bassett, CDH Director. For application queries please contact HR. For full details, please visit the job advertisement.
