About James Madison University Mission
The College of Arts and Letters (https://www.jmu.edu/cal/) at James Madison University invites applications for a digital studies scholar, appointable in any one of our ten academic departments across the humanities, social sciences, and communication arts, beginning August 2022.
Depending upon the research area and educational background, the primary appointment will be made in one of our ten academic departments: English; Foreign Languages; History; Philosophy and Religion; Writing, Rhetoric, and Technical Communication; Sociology and Anthropology; Justice Studies; Political Science; Communications; or Media Arts and Design. Joint appointment or affiliation possible. Teaching load is normally 3/2, but can be negotiated to align with service expectations and commitments. In addition to teaching, responsibilities will include helping develop curricula in digital studies across a large and diverse set of disciplines; managing digital scholarly projects; foster innovative pedagogy and research; and develop interdisciplinary collaborations within the College of Arts and Letters and beyond.
Candidates must hold an appropriate terminal degree, though that varies by discipline. Ideally, candidates will hold or be eligible for tenure at the rank of associate professor or professor, but we will also consider applications from advanced assistant professors with exceptional records of achievement. The successful candidate will have experience teaching in digital methods, theories, and applications; the ability to help coordinate and develop curriculum in digital studies across a large and diverse set of disciplines; a track record of managing digital scholarly projects; an outstanding record of innovative teaching and research in one or more of the core disciplines of the College of Arts and Letters; and a collaborative mindset. Candidates should also be able to demonstrate a commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration and to building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment. Familiarity with, and the ability to teach, the basics of coding and textual markup a plus.
