Job: Associate Director of TAMU’s

Texas A&M University seeks to hire at the level of Associate or Full Professor a dynamic scholar with an established record in digital humanities research and academic leadership to participate–as Associate Director–in establishing an interdisciplinary Institute for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture. The Institute has been designated one of eight Texas A&M Initial University Multidisciplinary Research Initiatives (and thus is the recipient of substantial start-up funding). The new appointment would be hired with tenure in an academic department that is closely associated with his or her main research direction, including Texas A&M’s innovative Visualization Department. Possible research areas include but are not limited to Visualization (including information and scientific visualization), Computer Science, Anthropology, Architecture, Digital Rhetorics, Ethics, or Philosophy. The Institute for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture supports interdisciplinary scholarly and creative work that broadly explores the relationship between computing technologies and culture.  Candidates may be trained in disciplines related to visual culture and media literacy, broadly construed, and globalization and internationalization of culture.   Furthermore, we are interested in scholars who bridge the gap between critical and creative studies as well as those who have an interest in developing grant and funded projects.
