Postdoctoral Fellow, HathiTrust Research Center
Indiana University HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) at Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering has a postdoctoral fellow position to develop new methods for curating and studying digital library collections, along with research data derived from these collections, with a particular emphasis on historically under-resourced and marginalized textual communities. The position is part of the Scholar-Curated Worksets for Analysis, Reuse & Discovery (SCWAReD) project, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Our project leverages human expertise and advanced technologies in the service of social justice by curating minority and other writings currently hidden among the vast collections of today’s digital libraries; the project will likewise explore the curation and preservation of research artifacts (methods, collections, derived data, research articles and reports) from the entire digital research lifecycle. These focused collections, or “worksets,” will be developed in collaboration with external collaborating researchers who will be selected through HTRC’s competitive Advanced Collaborative Support (ACS) program. The anticipated start date for the position is January 11, 2021.
The postdoc will join an interdisciplinary team that includes humanities scholars, information and computer scientists, librarians, and technology experts. Working with Prof. John Walsh, the postdoc will have lead responsibility for communications with the collaborating researchers and coordination of their projects. The postdoc will contribute to other aspects of the SCWAReD project, including the curatorial processes, information architecture, and technical infrastructure to make the SCWAReD project outcomes available for reference and reuse by the larger research community.
The postdoc position is a full-time non-tenure track twelve-month appointment, renewable an additional year subject to satisfactory performance and funding. A PhD completed within the last five (5) years is required, in a relevant humanities discipline, digital humanities, information and library science, or related field
