projects as well as a collaboration with the National Gallery in
Washington DC on a new digital archive under development:  "The
History of the Accademia di San Luca, 1589-1635: Documents from the
Archivio di Stato, Rome."  The successful candidate will have
experience with humanities encoding projects and knowledge of TEI

MITH is the University of Maryland's primary intellectual hub for
scholars and practitioners of digital humanities, electronic
literature, and cyberculture, as well as the home of the Electronic
Literature Organization, the most prominent international group
devoted to the writing, publishing, and reading of electronic
literature.  MITH functions as an applied think tank for the digital
humanities in its symposia and weekly seminar series; in its
furthering the excellence of MITH Fellows' research; and in its
cultivation of an innovative in-house research agenda that currently
clusters around digital tools, text mining and visualization, and the
creation and preservation of electronic literature, digital games, and
virtual worlds. MITH and the University of Maryland will host the
international Digital Humanities 2009 conference.

Salary range:  $40,000 to $50,000 plus benefits.  We will begin
accepting applications immediately and will continue until the
position is filled.  To apply, send a cover letter and resume to

Qualifications: Required: Bachelor's degree in computing, computer
science, or related field. A minimum of one year of Java experience
is required. Year for year experience in a high level programming
language may be substituted for educational requirement. Must be able
to work in a team environment. Excellent communication skills are
essential. Preferred: Background or interest in the humanities and
experience working with Unix O/S.

Salary: Salary range is $50,000 to $55,000 dependent upon the

position is filled, but applications received by May 30, 2008 will be
assured of full consideration. Candidates should submit a letter of
application and current resumes, which explicitly addresses how their
