Are you a doctoral student interested in digital scholarship, but don’t know where to start?
The University Library’s Scholarly Commons is now accepting applications for two new paid graduate internship positions for doctoral students in humanities or social sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Students currently in the third year or later of their doctoral program who have completed all required coursework are eligible to apply.
One internship will focus on the digital humanities, and the second internship will focus on the digital humanities or computational social sciences.
The two paid graduate interns will be “in-residence” in the Scholarly Commons for 10 hours per week during the 2017-2018 academic year: Interns will spend the majority of their time on a digital scholarship research project of their choosing that draws upon Scholarly Commons and University Library resources, and may intersect with their dissertation research. The Interns also will contribute time to the training and research support services of the Scholarly Commons in an area of digital scholarship of interest to them.
Interns will be assigned a mentor from the University Library throughout their internship. Interns also may work with Library staff outside of the Scholarly Commons depending on the digital scholarship projects they pursue during the internship.
