Associate Director
The Michelle Smith Collaboratory for Visual Culture is a visualization and computational methods facility situated within the Department of Art History and Archaeology.

The Associate Director will work with the Director to identify faculty (both within and without the Department) whose research has the greatest potential for the development of long-term research projects, work with selected faculty to design and structure their research project, document each project's many phases, and ensure the long-term sustainability of each project. Acting as a "translator" the Associate Director will mediate between content experts (for example Art Historians, Archaeologists and/or Classicists) and technology experts (Computer Scientists) to develop these effective models of cross-disciplinary research.

Applications should include a letter of application, curriculum vitae or resume, a graduate transcript, a writing sample, and the email address of three reference providers. (The writing sample might be from a scholarly article, thesis or dissertation chapter, or, ideally, a successful grant application). Candidates must have a Master's degree in a Humanities field such as Art History, Classics, Archaeology or related discipline (Ph.D. preferred).
