Simon Fraser University (CAN) - SSHRC Canada Research Chair in Digital Humanities, Tier 2Edit

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Simon Fraser University invites applications for a SSHRC Canada Research Chair in Digital Humanities, Tier 2. The successful applicant will be an exceptional emerging scholar with interdisciplinary expertise in Digital Humanities. Priority will be given to scholars with a research focus in some aspect of Indigenous studies, either within Canada or globally. Consideration will also be given to scholars whose interdisciplinary research has a transnational and/or intercultural focus.

An emerging scholar is defined as an active researcher in their field for fewer than 10 years at the time of nomination. Applicants who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree (and where career breaks exist, such as maternity, parental or extended sick leave, clinical training, etc.) may have their eligibility for a Tier 2 Chair assessed through the program’s Tier 2 justification process. Please consult the Canada Research Chairs website for full program information, including further details on eligibility criteria or direct questions to Chair, FASS Digital Humanities CRC Search Committee at

The successful candidate will be cross-appointed in a primary (home) and secondary unit within the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the rank of either Assistant or Associate Professor, as appropriate. The appointment of the successful candidate will be contingent upon the applicant receiving a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair. Applicants will normally hold a PhD in their home discipline.

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to furthering cross-disciplinary collaboration as well as the continued development of the Digital Humanities hub at SFU.

Applications should include: (1) a cover letter clearly identifying the preferred home and secondary departments; (2) a current CV; (3) a statement of research and teaching interests; (4) four (4) letters of reference; (5a) a scholarly publication or other suitable writing sample; and (5b) an example of a Digital Humanities research project, with a brief explanation of the applicant’s role in that project.

Review of applications will begin September 15, 2018. All applications will be treated in confidence. Please submit all applications electronically to the Chair, FASS Digital Humanities CRC Search Committee at Questions about the position can also be directed to that email address.
