Faculty Positions in Digital Humanities
at the Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)
The College of Humanities at EPFL invites applications for junior and senior faculty positions within its newly created Digital Humanities Institute.

Candidates from all areas that use computational methods in humanities research will be considered, but preference will be given to candidates in the fields of art history, museology, musicology, big data for the humanities, and information visualization.
EPFL offers a fertile environment for research cooperation between different disciplines including the humanities. It hosts the archives of the Montreux Jazz Festival (http://metamedia.epfl.ch), is involved in a trans-disciplinary project with the Archivio di Stato in Venice (http://vtm.epfl.ch), and numerous other research projects with several national and international institutions. EPFL is committed to build research competence in Digital Humanities; it has recently created an Institute of Digital Humanities and is recruiting world-class talent in this domain. EPFL will also offer a Master of Science in Digital Humanities starting with the academic year 2016/2017.
EPFL, with its main campus located in Lausanne, Switzerland, is a dynamically growing and well-funded institution fostering excellence and diversity. EPFL offers internationally competitive salaries, significant start-up resources, and outstanding research infrastructure. The EPFL environment is multi-lingual and multi-cultural, with English often serving as a common interface.
