Teaching Postdoctoral Fellow
The Digital Technology and Culture program at Washington State University (WSU) invites applications for an ACLS-Washington State University Postdoctoral Partnership Faculty Fellowship, made possible by a generous grant from the American Council of Learned Societies with funds provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The duration of the postdoctoral fellowship is two years beginning August 2021, with the intent to transition into a tenure-track faculty position upon the completion of the fellowship period. The Postdoctoral Partnership Initiative is designed to increase the diversity, broadly conceived, of faculty in the humanities and to support fellows within fields of the humanities for members of groups that have been historically underrepresented. The College of Arts and Sciences and the Digital Technology and Culture program particularly encourages applications from individuals who identify as members of traditionally underrepresented groups including, but not limited to Indigenous, Native American, First Nations, Black, African diaspora, and Latin(x) populations.
The Digital Technology and Culture program is an interdisciplinary program within the College of Arts and Sciences emphasizing humanistic understandings of technology, technological histories and futures, and publicly engaged research and creative production. Candidates should have a research focus and/or creative agenda in one or more of the following broadly interpreted areas: visual arts, web design and development, data-driven storytelling, digital media arts, integrative media and design, data visualization, archival sciences, artificial intelligence, or human-computer interaction with an emphasis on ethical, social and cultural considerations. The program values creative, collaborative, and publicly engaged scholarship that places an emphasis on explicitly anti-racist pedagogies, practices, and production in teaching, research, service, and scholarship that work to advance racial justice, reconciliation, and repair.
This is a two-year appointment at $60,000 per nine-month academic year with a 2-2 teaching load and all university benefits, with a transition to a Tenure Track appointment following the 2 year period.
