Denison UniversityDenison University (Granville, Ohio) - Assistant Professor, Data Analytics, Tenure Track[edit | edit source]

Job Summary and Requirements: Denison University seeks to hire a tenure-track faculty member to further develop its new interdisciplinary program in Data Analytics to start in the Fall of 2020. Candidates must have earned a Ph. D. no later than August 2020, and have a broad and deep formal education in a humanities discipline and in data-driven approaches to research in that discipline. The successful applicant will be actively engaged in research that applies advanced data analytics techniques to significant literary, historical, philosophical, cultural, linguistic, or artistic inquiry. The successful applicant will also be committed to teaching undergraduate students in an interdisciplinary setting.

New hires are normally made at the rank of Assistant Professor, but hiring at an advanced rank may be possible with significant prior experience. For more information on Denison's Data Analytics program, please visit http://denison.edu/academics/data-analytics. We seek to hire an individual with deep and innovative background in the humanities and data analysis that is representative of the applied, interdisciplinary nature of Data Analytics. This individual will join an existing group of interdisciplinary faculty to continue to grow and develop the Data Analytics major within our liberal arts curriculum. The candidate will have an opportunity to infuse quantitative and digital humanities examples into our curriculum, and to help raise the level of data-driven humanistic research, awareness, and integration at Denison and in the broader community.

Consequently, candidates for the position must have significant formal education in analytics, and actively engage in research that uses or develops advanced data analytics techniques. The ideal candidate will hold a Ph. D. in a humanities discipline or in a data science field, and their research should significantly emphasize data-driven techniques and quantitative approaches to questions within the humanities. Candidates must demonstrate successful teaching at the undergraduate level and a strong desire for pedagogical and curricular innovation within a liberal arts environment. We are seeking energetic self-starters who have a passion for bridging traditional disciplinary boundaries and an interest in linking the classroom to the wider faculty and community.

Teaching responsibilities will include core courses for the Data Analytics major (course specifics can be found at https://denison.edu/academics/data-analytics/courses), as well as the potential to design and teach courses in the candidate's data analytic specialty. The typical teaching load is 5 courses per year. The Data Analytics Program is growing rapidly at Denison, and is currently among the largest majors on campus, with more than 120 students. As interdisciplinary majors, all students choose a domain area in which to develop disciplinary knowledge in addition to the core Data Analytics skills. Thus, candidates will have an opportunity to creatively engage with students across broad demographic, academic, and career interests, to apply and connect their skill sets.

The Denison faculty is a community of teacher-scholars. Therefore, candidates must also have a clearly articulated, productive research program related to Data Analytics that is able to accommodate undergraduate research and flourish in a liberal arts environment. Denison hosts a vibrant and well-funded undergraduate research program, and offers competitive professional development funds and a pre-tenure research leave following a successful third-year review. Strong resources exist to support and mentor teaching - for example, the Center for Learning and Teaching, Teaching Matters discussions, and workshops to help new faculty transition. Finally, successful candidates will demonstrate their interest in contributing to campus governance and the life of the broader Denison community. Individuals with a demonstrated interest in community outreach are especially desirable.

Denison University is an increasingly diverse, highly selective, residential liberal arts college enrolling approximately 2,300 students from across the nation and around the world.

University of Leiden (EU:Ned) - Full Professor in Humanities and AI[edit | edit source]

Project description
Our society is changing. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and related technologies are playing an increasingly important role in our society. To this end Leiden University has started a new, university wide initiative to enable collaboration on the use of AI. By building on and expanding the already existing expertise of AI the project intends to advance science and improve the quality of our life. All the disciplines of the University of Leiden are involved: Archeology, Humanities, Social Sciences, Law, Public Administration, Sciences, and also the Leiden University Medical Centre (LUMC), to collaborate and appoint new staff with joint interests. Leiden University has earmarked dedicated funding for the appointment of full professors, assistant professors, a post-doc and support staff to facilitate the expansion of AI related research at all its departments.

Key responsibilities
This new chair will focus on the interaction between mental grammar and processes such as language acquisition, production and perception, by investigating, developing and applying methods and tools of computational linguistics and AI, such as deep neural learning and machine learning. The goal of this research is to gain a deeper understanding of natural language and to improve language and speech technology. One important aspect in the area of natural language processing (NLP) is statistical processing. Take for instance automatic speech recognition: very good results are booked using algorithms that make predictions about the signal based on statistical probabilities. The same is true for automatic translation where sequence-to-sequence translations (i.e. translation of lexical bundles) yield very high success rates. Indeed, the data-driven approach currently dominates the field of machine translation. However, an important question is how much knowledge about grammatical structure is necessary to further improve the outcome of automatic speech recognition, automatic translation and other language and speech technology. Currently, attempts are made to combine or complement data-driven approaches with rule-based methods in order to overcome inherent limitations with the statistical approaches.

Humanities
A wealth of expertise in the fields of philosophy, (art) history, the arts, literature, film and cultural sciences, religious studies, linguistics and multidisciplinary area studies results in a unique Faculty of Humanities. Our global expertise, international focus and synergy of scientific approaches form windows to the world, opening up the many perspectives of a globalising world. In a century of globalisation, large-scale levels of migration, intense and ever faster communication, cultural transformations and the politicisation of culture and the rise of new superpowers, the work and knowledge of the faculty’s staff is of vital importance to our society, both inside and outside of the Netherlands. It is precisely in the 21st century that our faculty consciously stands at the heart of that society.

The Faculty of Humanities offers an inspiring and international work environment with room for diversity and reform for employees and students from the Netherlands and abroad. It offers a wide range of education, with students being able to choose from no less than 26 Bachelor’s and 27 Master’s degree programmes. The Faculty’s research is organised within seven institutes and contributes to six research dossiers for research at Leiden University.

Terms and conditions 
We offer a full-time temporary appointment for a period of 4 years with a view to a permanent contract depending on good performance and funding.  Salary range from € 5.582,- to € 8.127,- gross per month (pay scale H2 in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities).

Leiden University offers an attractive benefits package with additional holiday (8%) and end-of-year (8.3 %) bonuses, training, career development and sabbatical leave. Our individual choices model gives you some freedom to assemble your own set of terms and conditions. For international spouses we have set up a dual career programme. Candidates from outside the Netherlands may be eligible for a substantial tax break. For more information, see http://workingat.leiden.edu/

Leiden University requires teaching staff to obtain the University Teaching Qualification (UTQ). If the successful applicant does not already possess this qualification or its equivalent, he/she must be willing to obtain this Qualification within two years.

Diversity
Leiden University is strongly committed to diversity within its community and especially welcomes applications from members of underrepresented groups.

Information
Enquiries can be made to Prof Dr Niels Schiller, T +31 71 527 2125, e-mail: n.o.schiller@hum.leidenuniv.nl.

Please be aware that due to holidays contact persons are not / limited accessible until the end of August.
