Digital Projects Manager

Position Summary: The New Hampshire Historical Society seeks a full-time digital projects manager to help lead the evolution of the Society’s digital collections and services and to take charge of a portfolio of digital initiatives, some under way and others ready to begin the planning stages. The position is planned to be in place for a period of three years, and may extend beyond that time.

The digital projects manager reports to the assistant executive director and will work closely with the collections stewardship, interpretation, and technology advisory teams to determine, plan, implement, and support the development of digital collections and web-based services. Team members include the Society’s staff (collections, interpretation, development, and administrative), current and former trustees, outside consultants and vendors, and colleagues from partnering institutions. Priority initiatives currently under way or ready to enter the planning stages include the conversion to an integrated collections management software (MINT), and the development of an online public access system for the MINT collections catalog; the establishment of an institution-wide digital assets management system; the creation of an online resource center to engage schools and local historical societies; and the development of an online collaborative portal to share digital images and transcriptions of the collected papers of U.S. President Franklin Pierce.

About the New Hampshire Historical Society: Founded in 1823, the New Hampshire Historical Society is the fifth-oldest historical society in the nation. It is the only institution devoted to saving, preserving, and sharing all aspects of New Hampshire’s history.

The Society’s mission is to educate a diverse public about the significance of New Hampshire’s past and its relationship to our lives today. In support of this mission the Society collects, preserves, and interprets materials pertaining to New Hampshire history. It is an independent nonprofit organization that receives no financial support from the state government.

The Society’s collections offer the most complete picture of the social, economic, political, and cultural history of over four centuries of life in New Hampshire. The collections include 31,000 objects, 50,000 bound volumes and pamphlets, 800,000 pages of 18th- and 19th-century newspapers, 500,000 pages of manuscripts, 15,000 ephemera items, 3,000 broadsides, 2,300 maps, and 200,000 photographs.

Our school programs reach an average of 18,000 students annually, both on-site and in classrooms across the state. The Society publishes a semi-annual journal, Historical New Hampshire, and a variety of books for both general and specialized audiences.

The Society’s annual operating budget of about $2 million is supported by 4,000 members and donors; an endowment of approximately $12 million, and earned income. The Society recently launched a comprehensive campaign to raise a total of $10.7 million, including $9.2 million in capital funds, with the dual objectives of expanding access to our collections and resources, while strengthening our financial position in both operations and capitalization.

While the Ph.D. field and the eventual assigned department(s) are open, we especially seek candidates engaged in interdisciplinary work in the humanities who bring to their research and teaching the theoretical, methodological, and technical practice of digital technologies. Along with fluency in the intellectual and theoretical challenges posed by the emerging field of digital humanities, we expect candidates to have experience in computational approaches to interpretation, whether the interpretive focus rests on performances, architectural or urban settings, texts, images, and/or other artifacts. Expertise could be in geographic information systems, visualization, text-mining or other modes of computer or internet-based work, as well as new modes of presenting work in electronic formats.

This position is part of a Five College initiative to support exceptionally promising young scholars, offering an opportunity to pursue teaching and research for two years. The fellow will teach two undergraduate courses each year, one each semester. (There will be a home institution and one other campus where teaching will occur, both to be determined such that the successful candidate’s field of specialization can be best supported with mentors.) Because this post-doctoral program is designed to provide the fellow with valuable teaching experience and time to complete and publish research prior to seeking a full-time tenure-track position, the fellow will also be expected to pursue an independent research program vigorously.

The fellow will fully participate in one of the nation’s most vibrant academic collaborations, with support from colleagues and library and research facilities at all five campuses, each located within 20 minutes drive of the others. The fellow will be paired with research and teaching mentors in closely related fields and will be an active participant in the Five College Digital Humanities Project (https://www.fivecolleges.edu/dh) with the opportunity to collaborate with scholars engaged with the Digital Humanities Initiative at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

This postdoctoral fellowship is a full-time salaried appointment ($50,000) with excellent benefits and $5,000 in research support each year. It is open only to recent Ph.D. recipients; the fellow must have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. by September 2013 and no earlier than June 2010.

Review of applications will begin January 30, 2013, and continue until the position is filled.

Harvard University - Berkman Center for Internet & Society: 2013-2014 FellowshipEdit

The Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University has opened our yearly call for fellowship applications. This opportunity is for those who wish to spend the 2013-2014 academic year in residence in Cambridge, MA as part of Berkman's community of pioneers, and who seek to deeply engage in the collaborative, cross-disciplinary, and cross-sectoral exploration of some of the Internet's most interesting, challenging, and compelling issues.

We invite applications from those who are working on issues related to Internet and society who are familiar with the work of the Berkman Center as well as those who are not; those studying issues that overlap with ongoing Berkman interests and those who will expose us to new opportunities and approaches; scholars, practitioners, innovators, and others committed to understanding and advancing the public interest; those who come from and have interest in countries industrialized or developing; and people just beginning their work, in the midst of it, or eager to reflect upon it. Through this annual open call, we seek to advance our work and give it new direction, and to deepen and broaden our community. We welcome you to read more about the program below, and to consider joining us as a fellow!

About Berkman’s Fellowship Program

The Berkman Center's mission is to explore and understand cyberspace; to study its development, dynamics, norms, and standards; and to assess the need or lack thereof for laws and sanctions.

We are a research center, premised on the observation that what we seek to learn is not already recorded. Our method is to build out into cyberspace, record data as we go, self-study, and share. Our mode is entrepreneurial nonprofit.

Inspired by our mission statement, the Berkman Center’s fellowship program provides the opportunity for some of the world’s most innovative thinkers and changemakers to hone and share ideas, find camaraderie, and spawn new initiatives. The program aims to encourage and support fellows in an inviting and rigorous intellectual environment, with community activities designed to foster inquiry and to identify and expose the common threads across fellows’ individual activities.

Fellows actively participate in exchanges through a weekly fellows hour, fellows-run working groups, and a wide-range of Berkman Center events and interactions. While engaging in both substance and process, much of what makes the fellowship program rewarding is created each year by the fellows themselves to address their own interests and priorities. These entrepreneurial, collaborative ventures – ranging from goal-oriented to experimental, from rigorous to humorous – are what ensure the dynamism of the fellows, the fellowship program, and the Berkman community.

Additionally, with Berkman faculty, students, staff, and other affiliates, fellows help to develop and advance their own work and Berkman Center projects, and they learn and teach through courses, hacking and development sessions, cultural productions, and other diverse gatherings.

Fellows are essential to the Berkman Center as nodes of intelligence, insight, energy, and knowledge-sharing. From their diverse backgrounds and wide-ranging physical and virtual travels, Berkman Center fellows bring fresh ideas, skills, passion, and connections to the Center, and from their time spent in Cambridge help build and extend new perspectives and initiatives out into the world.

About Berkman Fellowships

An appointment that defies one-size-fits-all description, each Berkman fellowship carries a unique set of opportunities, responsibilities and expectations. All fellows engage issues related to the fairly limitless expanse of Internet & society issues, and are committed to the intellectual life of the Center and fellowship program activities. Some fellows work as researchers directly on Berkman Center projects. Other fellowships consist of independent work, such as the research and writing of a manuscript or series of papers, the vision and planning of an action-oriented meeting, or the development and implementation of an initiative or a study on issues related to the Berkman Center’s areas of inquiry.

Fellowship terms typically run the course of the academic year, roughly from the beginning of September through the end of May. In some instances, fellows are re-appointed for consecutive fellowship terms.

While we embrace our many virtual connections, spending time together in person remains essential. In order to maximize their engagement with the community, during their fellowship terms fellows are expected to routinely spend time in and conduct much of their work from Cambridge, in most cases requiring residency. Tuesdays hold particular importance as it is the day the fellows community meets for a weekly fellows hour, in addition to it being the day Berkman hosts our public luncheon series; as such, we ask that fellows commit to spending as many Tuesdays at the Center as is possible.

Qualifications

While fellowships are extremely competitive and our standards are accordingly high, we do not have a defined set of requirements for the fellows we select through our open call; we welcome applications from a wildly diverse pool of individuals.

Fellows come from across the disciplinary spectrum, different life paths, and are at all stages of career development. Some fellows are academics, whether students, post-docs or professors. Others come from outside academia, and include lawyers, philosophers, activists, technologists, entrepreneurs, journalists and other types of practitioners.

The commonality between all Berkman fellows is an interest in the intersections of the Internet and related emergent technologies, social change, and policy and regulatory change, and a commitment to spending their fellowship exploring those dynamics in concert with others.

To learn more about the work and interests of our current community of fellows, you can read their bios and find links to their outstanding work at http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/people/fellows, read their blogs athttp://cyber.law.harvard.edu/planet/current/, and find them on the twittersphere in our list of Berkman community members at https://twitter.com/i/#!/berkmancenter/current-people-projects.

Commitment to Diversity

The work and well-being of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society are strengthened profoundly by the diversity of our network and our differences in background, culture, experience, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, and much more. We actively seek and welcome applications from people of color, women, the LGBTQ community, and persons with disabilities, as well as applications from researchers and practitioners from across the spectrum of disciplines and methods. The roots of this deep commitment are many and, appropriately, diverse. We are not nearly far enough along in this regard, and we may never be. It is a constant process in which there remains much to learn. We welcome your inquiries, comments and ideas on how we may continue to improve.

Stipends, Benefits, and Access to University Resources

Stipends: Fellowships awarded through the open call for applications are rarely stipended. Some fellows receive partial stipends –the award of such a stipend is based on the nature of the responsibilities the applicant would assume while a fellow, and their relation, relevance, and application to Berkman’s funded projects. Most fellows receive no direct funding or stipend through the Berkman Center, but rather have obtained funding through other means, such as an outside grant or award, a home institution, or other forms of scholarship.

Benefits: Fringe benefits do not routinely accompany Berkman fellowships. Fellows must make their own housing, insurance, childcare, and transportation arrangements.

Office Space: Most Berkman fellows work out of the greater-Boston area and spend a significant amount of time at the Berkman Center. There are many desks and workspaces available for flexible use at the Berkman Center, though few fellows are given their own permanent desk or office. We endeavor to provide comfortable and productive spaces for fellows to work, even if it is not the same space each day. Fellows are welcome to host small meetings and gatherings at the Center and on the Harvard campus.

Access to University Resources: Fellows are allowed physical access into Langdell Library (the Harvard Law School Library), and fellows are able to acquire a Special Borrower Card for privileges with the Harvard College Libraries. At present, we do not routinely provide access to the University’s e-resources by way of individual logins, however the e-resources are accessible within the libraries. Fellows do not have the ability to purchase University health insurance, get Harvard housing, or purchase Harvard gym membership. Berkman fellows wishing to audit classes at Harvard University must ask permission directly from the professor of the desired class.

Additional Information about the Berkman Center

The Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University is a research program founded to explore cyberspace, share in its study, and help pioneer its development. Founded in 1997, through a generous gift from Jack N. and Lillian R. Berkman, the Center is home to an ever-growing community of faculty, fellows, staff, and affiliates working on projects that span the broad range of intersections between cyberspace, technology, and society.

The successful candidate will join a research team which is developing a web-based editing application for pre-modern texts. This new digital tool will support the creation and publication of digital editions that employ one of the five major editing methods of scholarly editing (Lachmannian, diplomatic, single-manuscript, base-text and mouvance). Development is already underway and will be completed by December 2014.

The Research Fellow will be responsible for one of six use cases that will test the functionality and feature set of the software.

There are some limited research funds available to assist in digitization should that be required. The Center for Digital Theology would also assist the Research Fellow in seeking permissions where necessary.

In addition to the work of scholarly editing, the Research Fellow will also participate in bug reporting, usability testing and weekly staff meetings.

The successful candidate will possess a doctorate in medieval studies (or a single humanities discipline with a medieval research focus). S/He will have strong, demonstrated skills in Latin and/or vernacular paleography. The successful candidate will also have taken advanced courses in editing or will have at least one year experience in scholarly text editing.

University of Utrecht (NL) - Center for the Humanities, Digital Humanities FellowshipEdit

This cluster will sharpen the academic awareness of the public perception of the University as a humanistic institution today. It compares notes on different and new concepts of ‘the Human’, drawn from as broad an interdisciplinary field as possible. Mostly it aims at mapping new developments in the relationship between the Humanities and both the social and the natural sciences in the twenty-first century. It thus interrogates the relationship between the ‘two cultures’ of the Humanities and Science in the light of contemporary scientific and technological developments and new epistemologies, with special emphasis on the sophisticated forms of interdisciplinary research that have emerged in the fields of bio-technologies, neural sciences, environmental and climate change research and Information and Communication Technologies. These rapid changes affect the very definitions of the human and of human evolution and thus affect the research agenda of the Humanities. The project studies the specific new forms of inter- and transdisciplinary interaction between the Humanities, the Social and the natural sciences and examines how a culture of ‘mutual respect’ can be developed across all the disciplines today.

The focus for this theme will be: Digital Humanities

The Digital Humanities, also known as Humanistic Informatics or Humanities Computing are a fast-growing field that ranges from digital library resources and digital publishing to research on new media and information technologies. The aim of this fellowship is to provide a synoptical view of some of the substantive and content-driven connections between the research culture and practice of the Humanities and the debates about the new digital media and information technologies. More specifically the fellowship aims to link these debates to the civic mission of the university to train responsible, active and informed citizens. This theme also aims to compare notes on different and new concepts of ‘the Human’ and even ‘the posthuman’ drawn from as broad an interdisciplinary field as possible. This may lead to interrogate the relationship between the ‘two cultures’ of the Humanities and techno-sciences in the light of contemporary developments and new epistemologies. CFH welcomes application from the fields of history, literary theory, cultural studies, linguistics, computer science, media, philosophy, art and digital publishing.

for the call for Digital fellowship click here

This project takes place within the CfH research platform 'The Humanities in the 21st Century’,which aims at exploring the different facets of the social responsibility of the university in the twenty-first century and hence new interfaces between the Humanities and the social, natural and digital sciences. It also relates to the Descartes Centre’s work on the history and philosophy of Science.

The rise of the internet and with it, online communities, social networks and online publishing, has changed the way we gather information and the way we share it. It has significantly influenced the modes of being in the world, as well as changing academics modes of working, researching and publishing. This broad concern, together with the question how these digital developments have affected research in the Humanities, is the core of the Digital Humanities project. How can the digital Humanities fulfill its potential and transform Humanities scholarschip and education?

This fellowship should result in a synthesis report about current scholarship and teaching practice within the digital Humanities field. A selected and up to date bibliography of relevant sources will also be required to develop a mission statement for the digital humanities that will be presented during a joint CfH-Descartes workshop.

This Senior Digital Fellowship is available for three months and offers a stipend of € 2000 - € 2500 per month, depending on the seniority of the candidate.

Eligibility

We welcome applications from promising researchers with at least two years of teaching experience. Candidates are expected to hold a PhD degree or equivalent expertise in the Humanities, preferably in philosophy, media or cultural studies; to be knowledgeable about digital humanities; to speak and write fluently in English.

Application (Due October 1, 2012)

To apply for this 2012-2013 fellowship, please assemble the following information and send it to cfh@uu.nl
