Graduate Student Opportunities

We welcome the opportunity to work with graduate students who are interested in gaining hands-on experience with digital scholarship at Duke.  Our primary graduate opportunities are research assistantships and curricular-credit earning field experiences.

Research Assistantships

Two half-time (19.5 hr/wk), paid assistantships are open to Ph.D. students in any discipline.  We look to hire students who have a strong interest in learning about digital humanities methods and tools while helping to support innovative research at Duke.  Assistants in these positions have opportunities to:

  • work on digital humanities projects sponsored by the Mellon Foundation-funded Humanities Writ Large initiative;
  • gain knowledge and skills in using digital tools, methods, and platforms for teaching and research;
  • and work directly with faculty and students to develop new digital projects for humanities research.

To learn more about these assistantships, please see the call for applications or contact Will Shaw.

Field Experiences

Digital Scholarship Services offers 1-2 semester curricular-credit earning positions for graduate students in Library and Information Science programs.  For more information, please contact Liz Milewicz.
