Lots of work for digital humanists in the Washington DC area these days. The Center for History and New Media (CHNM) is looking for a postdoc to work on a major new text-mining study. We’re also looking for a new entry-level administrative assistant (a *fantastic* opportunity for a smart, enthusiastic, soon-to-be college grad). And our good friends at the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) are looking for a programmer to work on their exciting new Shakespeare project.
Here are the ads:
