Tenure-track opportunity in digital history

Susan Schreibman

this opportunity at Maastricht University might suit a historian on the list with expertise in TEI/digital archives.


Maastricht University’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences is seeking an assistant professor with demonstrated excellence in teaching and research using digital methods for historical scholarship and engagement. You will contribute to teaching in our BA Digital Society, MA Digital Cultures, and MA Arts & Heritage. The position’s duties are 60% teaching and management and 40% research. Research time can be extended through external fundraising.

Applicants should have a PhD degree in a relevant humanities/social science discipline (such as history, digital humanities, archival studies or heritage and museum studies) with a focus on developing and applying digital methods (e.g., building digital archives/collections/databases, GIS, text/data mining, simulated environments, machine-assisted analysis of images, web history, etc.) to historical research. Applicants may specialize in the history of any time period or region, but teaching duties will primarily relate to modern European history. Experience in heritage institutions, archives, museums, and/or public engagement with historical research is not required but applicants with such experience should highlight it.
