The College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University invites nominations and applications for a tenured or tenure-track position in computational humanities, beginning autumn semester 2017. The designated rank is open; the departmental home is open.

Research and teaching interests might include network theory and analysis, stylistic analysis, text mining, visualization and mapping, technologies of reading, or computational literary criticism. This position is partially funded by Ohio State University’s Discovery Themes, a significant faculty hiring investment in key thematic areas in which the university can build on its culture of academic collaboration to make a global impact. The successful candidate will be involved in developing computational humanities through research, teaching, and program building.

Preference will be given to candidates with a strong record of cross-disciplinary collaboration. Appointment is contingent on the university’s verification of credentials and other information required by law and/or university policies, including but not limited to a criminal background check.
