The School of Humanities at the University of Southampton encompasses a diverse range of subjects providing high-quality teaching within a vibrant research culture. Southampton Digital Humanities contribute to that environment by enabling staff and students across the School of Humanities to take digital and computational approaches to the humanities teaching, research, and enterprise.

You will become part of a team of dedicated educators and researchers. As a practiced educator you will have a PhD or equivalent qualifications and experience in Digital Humanities, Digital Media, Digital Culture, and/or an aligned subject area as well as teaching experience at Undergraduate and/or Postgraduate level. While we welcome applications from those working in any aspect of Digital Humanities, we would be particularly interested in candidates who could contribute to inter-disciplinary pedagogy in the School of Humanities. 

You will be supported by recent investment in Digital Humanities expertise, estate, and resources. Notable among these is our Digital Humanities Hub, an infrastructure that supports study and research, is a hub for expertise and critique, and provides access to technologies that enable us to make and explore virtual worlds, compute text, sonify pictures, scan and manipulate heritage objects, immerse ourselves in data visualisations, and much more. 

A founding member of the prestigious Russell Group, the University of Southampton has a global reputation for its passion and ability to work collaboratively in delivering world-class education, research and innovation that makes a proven impact on society’s greatest challenges.
