Hello all,

I'm posting a reminder about the senior position in Humanities
Computing at the University of Alberta. I've pasted the text below,
but it can also be found at
http://huco.ualberta.ca. The competition
closes 2 April 2007.

The position will provide a opportunity to influence significantly
the direction of humanities computing research in Canada and beyond,
as we're looking to expand our programme, including the creation of a
doctoral programme. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate
to contact me.

Associate or Full Professor - Senior Position in Humanities Computing

The Humanities Computing Programme (HuCo) and the Faculty of Arts at
the University of Alberta invite applications for a tenured
appointment at the senior Associate or Full Professor level,
commencing 1 July 2008. The Humanities Computing Programme has

digitally-enhanced teaching and research in the liberal arts. We
welcome applicants who will extend and enhance this profile; assist
in the establishment of a doctoral programme in Humanities Computing;
initiate, develop, and lead substantial research projects at the
national and international level; and strengthen interdisciplinary
links within and across faculties at the university.

The successful candidate will be a leader in the Humanities Computing
community with a national and international reputation for excellence
in technologically-enhanced teaching and research in the Arts. A PhD
is required. Applicants should be leaders in the conduct, reporting,
and dissemination of research work on the application of leading-edge
approaches to humanities computing disciplines, such as knowledge
representation, visual communication design, new media, hypertext,
text corpora, text encoding and analysis, computational linguistics,
statistical models, and broad library and research-based work that
focuses on significant issues of textuality, interfaces, and
information browsing and retrieval. Candidates should have
significant experience in curriculum development in communication and
digital media programmes at the graduate and/or undergraduate level.
We would specifically welcome applicants who have led the successful
development of new degree programmes. Candidates will have a
substantial track record of success in obtaining funding from
national and international agencies in infrastructure and research
development. Candidates will have significant successful experience
teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level and will be expected
to continue to do so in this position.

Candidates should send the Director a letter of application, a
complete curriculum vitae (with full contact information including
phone numbers and an email address), a teaching dossier, an
evaluation of teaching performance, and the names and institutional
contact information of three referees invited to write on behalf of
the applicant. Please arrange to have these supporting letters sent
directly to the Director. The department of appointment will be based
on the area of specialization of the successful candidate. Salary is
commensurate with experience and rank. The closing date for
