The Department of Language, Culture, History, and Communication at the University of Southern Denmark is offering a TWO (2) fully funded 17 months postdoc positions commencing March 1, 2024 (or as soon as possible thereafter). We are looking for two candidates who are highly motivated to undertake post-doctoral research as part of a four-year collaborative research project funded by the Velux Foundations Core Group and headed by Professor Kathrin Maurer (SDU) and Associate Professor Kristin Veel (Copenhagen University)
Today we are immersed in life-like digital technologies, such as virtual assistants, generative computer systems, and adaptive robots. While physicists, engineers, and biologists are speaking about a notion of “life 3.0”, which declares life status to self-learning artificial intelligence, our humanities-based core group will conceptualize life-simulating digital technologies as sensing bio-machines. We argue that their machinic life-like qualities should be understood through the ways in which they perform a techno-mimesis of the sensory capabilities of biological life. We investigate these “life-forms” from an aesthetic angle, focusing on understanding the sensory capabilities of these technologies and the way they are negotiated in literature, art and film in order to advance knowledge about what constitutes being alive.
Once appointed the postdocs are expected to contribute to collaborative work that may include co-authoring, co-organizing conferences or seminars, teaching, and contributing the Center for Culture and Technology at SDU. Appointment to this position may also include teaching obligations in regard to related degree programmes. Read more and apply: https://www.sdu.dk/da/service/ledige_stillinger/1214086?sc_lang=en

The Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study (NDIAS) is a university-wide institute that convenes an interdisciplinary group of fellows each year to study questions that engage complex ethical challenges of our time and affect our ability to lead valuable, meaningful lives. Made possible by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation, the Signature Course Fellowship funds and supports faculty who have a vision for translating research on human flourishing into large-scale, public-facing, pedagogically innovative courses that have the potential to serve as a cornerstone in their university’s curriculum. Paradigmatic examples of signature courses include Michael Sandel’s Justice (Harvard), Bill Burnett and Dave Evans’ Designing Your Life (Stanford), and Meghan Sullivan’s God and the Good Life (Notre Dame).
The Signature Course Fellowship Program aims to gather a cohort of scholars from across disciplines and higher education who are ready to build and launch their own signature course addressing a pressing question for human flourishing. During the 2024-2025 academic year, the program will fund 15 faculty members for residential sabbaticals to pursue their projects: two during the Fall 2024 semester, three during the Spring 2025 semester, and 10 during an intensive, one-month program in Summer 2025 (likely in June). Semester-long Fellows (Fall 2024, Spring 2025) will receive a $50,000 fellowship stipend during the semester of residency as well as subsidized housing near Notre Dame. Summer 2025 Fellows will receive a $15,000 fellowship stipend during their four weeks of residency as well as subsidized housing.
All funded course proposals will be provided a $10,000 subgrant to help launch their course along with a $7,000 design fund allotment to develop assets for the course (such as the creation of a course trailer videos, publicity posters, co-curricular activities, field experiences, etc.). A portion of the design fund should also be used to conduct a benchmarking assessment before or during residency.
Applications for Faculty Fellowships must be submitted through Interfolio (https://apply.interfolio.com/128277) and should include the following:

Dumbarton Oaks is a Harvard research institute that supports research internationally in Byzantine, Pre-Columbian, and Garden and Landscape Studies. Dumbarton Oaks encompasses a museum with world-class collections of Pre-Columbian, Byzantine, and European Renaissance art, and a historic garden designed by Beatrix Farrand. Since 2018 we have pursued an initiative in the emerging interdisciplinary field of the Plant Humanities, which explores the extraordinary significance of plants to human cultures. A key outcome is the Plant Humanities Lab, an open-access digital site that features visually engaging, interactive narratives on plants from the perspectives of race, colonialism, environmental justice, foodways, indigenous knowledge, evolution, and biodiversity loss in the Anthropocene. Dumbarton Oaks is committed to further developing and enhancing the site as a tool for innovative pedagogy, online sharing of collections, and communicating the importance of plants and multispecies interactions to a broad audience.
This fellowship offers unique opportunities to build career skills in digital humanities, special collections, and innovative pedagogy, while participating in a growing interdisciplinary network of researchers at Dumbarton Oaks, nationally, and internationally. The Fellow will participate fully in Dumbarton Oaks’ dynamic community of scholars, working collaboratively with all three programs of study as well as the Museum, Library, and other departments, and will devote 20% of the fellowship time to personal research.
