IE University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Digital Humanities at the Assistant Professor level to join our new interdisciplinary School of Humanities in September 2024.
Candidates should demonstrate a solid grasp of analytical methods that inform the Digital Humanities, such as textual mining, natural language processing, data visualization, and/or digital mapping.
Applicants should demonstrate commitment to excellence in scholarship and teaching in a liberal arts college environment and are expected to play a significant role in shaping the future direction of our growing department.
Teaching responsibilities include 135 contact hours per year (roughly comparable to a 2-1 teaching load), divided across a range of introductory and advanced undergraduate courses. Additional duties will include conducting research, writing for publication, participating in department governance, and university service.
Spanish language skills are not required. Our working language is English, and both our faculty and student body are highly diverse and international. Opportunities for Spanish language training will be provided to assist with integration into living in Spain.
IE University is strongly committed to non-discriminatory hiring practices and encourages applications from individuals who will further expand the diversity of our faculty.
Salaries are internationally competitive, and the position offers all the benefits required by Spain’s labor laws.
IE University is a global academic institution with campuses in Madrid and in Segovia, Spain. To learn more about the IE School of Humanities and its faculty, please visit IE School of Humanities.
In addition to candidates with a PhD in Digital Humanities, we will also consider those whose terminal degree comes from a humanities discipline (broadly defined) and have experience with computational methods in pedagogy and research.
We also welcome applications from candidates with a PhD in the Computer Sciences (or related fields) who are actively engaged in research in the humanities. Preference will be given to candidates who have developed a research agenda focusing on topics pertaining to Latin America and/or Africa.
Applications should include a cover letter, CV, two confidential letters of recommendation, a teaching statement, a writing sample or digital project/portfolio, and evidence of teaching excellence in the form of teaching evaluations. Interested candidates should create a dossier at Interfolio and submit their applications by January 15, 2024.
