Arizona State University invites nominations and applications for an Assistant or Associate Research Professor to serve as Director of ASU’s Center for Digital Antiquity. We seek an entrepreneurial researcher and an intellectual leader in digital data management who is able to lead a small, dedicated staff in advancing the Center’s mission and strategic objectives. Digital Antiquity’s mission is to extend knowledge of the human past and improve the management of cultural heritage by permanently preserving digital archaeological data and supporting their discovery, access, and reuse. Digital Antiquity fulfills this charge through the development and operation of tDAR (the Digital Archaeological Record), an international digital repository holding the digital records of archaeological investigations and organizations, and related research.
The Director serves as the chief executive officer of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-funded Center of Digital Antiquity and is responsible for the acquisition of clients and the administration of the Center’s operations. Having grown steadily in our first decade, ASU seeks a resourceful and innovative leader able to build on a strong organizational and technical foundation to move tDAR to the next level. The Director holds an Assistant or Associate Research Professor (non-tenured, renewable) appointment in the ASU School of Human Evolution and Social Change (SHESC) and reports to the Digital Antiquity Board of Directors and to the Director of SHESC. This is a full-time fiscal year appointment with salary dependent on qualifications and experience. The anticipated start date is July 2019. ASU provides excellent benefits.
Initial deadline for complete applications is June 9, 2019. If not filled, review will occur every two weeks thereafter until the search is closed. Applicants must apply online at http://academicjobsonline.org and include a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references. References should be prepared to submit a letter, if requested. Please make sure your last name appears in each uploaded file name. Please address your cover letter to Professor Keith Kintigh, Search Committee Chair. This is a paperless search; only materials submitted electronically as described above will be considered. A background check is required for employment.
Information about the School and the Center can be found at https://shesc.asu.edu and https://www.digitalantiquity.org/. SHESC is a global leader in transdisciplinary social science providing many opportunities for the successful applicant to engage with a world-renowned, collaborative research and teaching environment. For example, the School collaborates extensively with ASU’s Institute of Human Origins and the Center for Evolution and Medicine. Opportunities for the curator to conduct collaborative research are abundant.
