Williams College Museum of Art invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship. The Fellow’s work is part of WCMA Digital, a major initiative supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation that aims to make the museum’s collections open and accessible to all, and develop a set of digital tools to support new pedagogical, creative and intellectual explorations of the collection.
WCMA’s Mellon Fellow for Digital Humanities will explore and encourage digital humanities scholarship and methodologies within a museum context, with access to collections and involvement in exhibitions and public programs. WCMA is uniquely suited to connect and collaborate with programs, people and projects across campus. The project builds on digital humanities projects across the College in the departments of English, History and American Studies, and the College’s Library.
Reporting to WCMA’s Mellon Manager of Digital Initiatives, the Fellow will be part of the vibrant and collaborative staff at WCMA.
The Fellow will also be art of Williams’ academic community, including its postdoc peer group, which spans academic programs. Undergraduate research is an emphasis at Williams, and this position will have the opportunity to work closely with talented, research-oriented college students.
Williams is committed to enriching its educational experience and its culture through the diversity of its faculty, administration, and staff.
