*Faculty positions in computational social science and digital humanities*

Northeastern University invites applications and nominations at all ranks
(Professor/Associate Professor/Assistant Professor) for a cluster of
faculty positions in fields encompassed by the Digital Humanities and
Computational Social Science. We define the range of relevant disciplines
broadly to include study in the humanities or human behavior and developing
computational methods applied to these domains.

In association with a new multidisciplinary center, the NUlab for Texts,
Maps, and Networks, this cluster hire builds on Northeastern’s national
prominence in the digital humanities, computational social science, and
network science. At the core of NUlab lies new collaborative work across
disciplines in the era of big data, digitized texts, visualization, and
social media. The premise of the lab is that both the humanities and the
social sciences are at the beginning of a paradigm shift driven by the
opportunities offered by emerging corpora of large-scale data coupled with
enormous computational power.

We welcome applications from faculty engaged in research areas and
technologies including (but not limited to) geographic information systems,
text mining, topic modeling, network analysis, natural language processing,
machine learning, gaming, new media, digital curation, and data
visualization and design. Cross-disciplinary and cross-college appointments
are possible.
