Research Fellow - NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks
NULab/DITI Research Fellows will work on research and teaching collaborations, documentation, website development, and other core activities of the NULab. Fellows will focus their summer work on helping the NULab's Digital Integration Teaching Initiative to bring new digital skills to classrooms across the humanities and social sciences. Fellows will partner with CSSH faculty to help design and teach workshops that integrate digital skills into humanities and social science classrooms.
Responsibilities for NULab/DITI Research Fellows include: 1) Developing educational modules and assignments, including setting up and attending consultations with faculty members. 2) Leading in-class workshops on digital tools and skills. 3) Publicity and outreach for the program, including identifying and reaching out to faculty who might be interested in the initiative. 4) Updating the DITI website and GitHub repository to reflect current modules and exercises. 5) Developing guidelines and best practices around the DITI for both internal and external purposes.
Fellows may also work on other projects supporting the activities of the NULab, particularly updating and authoring content for the NULab website. As opportunities arise, Fellows may work on other NULab research initiatives, grant writing and administration, and other projects related to the NULab’s interdisciplinary teaching and research.
