There still aren’t that many jobs for digital historians out there. If you are in the market for one of those jobs, here’s a possibility that I found out about from the search committee chair. Please do not email me about it — I’m just passing along the notice.
The Departments of History and Film and Media Studies and the Ph.D. Program in Visual Studies at the University of California, Irvine invite applications for a joint tenure-track appointment at the Assistant Professor level, beginning July 1, 2011, for an intellectual or cultural historian with expertise in twentieth and twenty-first century broadcasting history (radio and television), and/or histories of digital and new media and/or global media. The regional focus of the search is open, but applicants with research specializations on Africa, Europe, East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and the US are encouraged to apply. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in History, Film and Media Studies, or a related field.
Please apply online at http://recruit.ap.uci.edu and submit a letter of application, a statement of current research, a curriculum vitae, an article-length writing sample, two sample course syllabi, and three letters of reference. The application deadline is December 20, 2010.
