Are you a Yale graduate student interested in humanistic questions and in building professional experience and expertise on digital humanities projects in a client-facing role? The Yale DHLab welcomes applicants to our DH Consultant positions. No prior DH experience is necessary for some positions, but applicants must have completed the DH Foundations workshop series (offered through the DHLab twice per semester) prior to applying.
DH Consultants will commit to holding office hours in the DHLab space for a minimum of two hours per week. On top of this, consultants may elect, in conversation with the DHLab, to work for up to eight additional paid hours completing their own digital projects or training in particular DH project roles (project management, technical writing, etc.) or methodologies. Consultants will have access to DHLab space, equipment, and staff mentorship for completing this work and training.
Please check back in late spring 2023 for links to apply.
DH Generalist Consultants
DH Generalist Consultants bring a general interest in developing DH competencies and perform a number of roles, including (but not limited to) holding open office hours in the DHLab to help researchers identify and manage DH project needs, joining current DHLab projects to gain hands-on experience, and participating in secondments to other library units.
DH Specialist Consultants
Digital Humanities Specialist Consultants perform the same roles as the Generalist Consultants, but bring an existing area of expertise in the digital humanities and may offer workshops in their area of knowledge.
