The School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies (SLLCS) warmly welcomes applications for the position of Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities and Culture. The successful candidate will join a dynamic interdisciplinary team and will be a key member contributing to teaching and research excellence and innovation.
This post is full time, 3-year fixed term.
Closing date for applications is 15 May 2023.
The TCD Centre for Digital Humanities (DH@TCD) is internationally recognised for its contributions in research, teaching and service. Our 10-year track record of externally-funded research projects covers a wide range of topics, with particular strengths in the development of research environments and infrastructures for the digital humanities, and the application of digital humanities insights to wider social, cultural and technical challenges (critical digital humanities). Among our projects have been signature EU- funded initiatives such as CENDARI, PARTHENOS, KPLEX, ECloud, and PROVIDE DH. We also host one of the four Coordination Offices of the DARIAH ERIC (www.dariah.eu), a pan-European research infrastructure for the arts and humanities.
The Centre also feeds its expertise into Trinity’s Postgraduate Programme in Digital Humanities and Culture, which is based in the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies. This one-year programme, which can be taken as a PG Certificate, PG Diploma or full Master’s degree, introduces students to the basic discourses, contexts and tools of the field, preparing them for a wide range of
professional and research opportunities. The Centre also hosts doctoral, postdoctoral and visiting researchers, as well as contributing to a wide variety of academic and public outreach events.
The MPhil in Digital Humanities and Culture was launched at TCD in 2011, and was migrated into its current academic home school in 2018. Since then it has grown from strength to strength, receiving excellent assessments for curricular innovation from our students and academic reviewers, and witnessing a dramatic increase in student numbers from around the world. The course leverages its position at the centre of one of Europe’s technology industry hubs as well as its embedding in a historic university to deliver a truly unique and compelling take on the digital humanities.
