New Digital Military History Postdoctoral Fellowship
We are pleased to announce that the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media will be collaborating with the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) to host a new postdoctoral fellowship in digital military history here at our center. The DPAA is the Defense Department agency charged with providing the fullest possible accounting for America’s missing military personnel to their families and the nation. Researchers and scientists from DPAA travel to wherever American military personnel have died or gone missing in order to provide accurate and timely information to the families of those who remain unaccounted for. Funding for this three-year fellowship will allow an emerging scholar to work directly with DPAA staff and scientists on a variety of digital military history projects that further the agency’s mission.
The advertisement for this position will appear shortly and this post will be updated accordingly. In the meantime, if you are a digital military historian and hold (or are about to hold) a PhD in history, please consider applying to this exciting postdoctoral fellowship. The successful applicant will join our team and a cohort of two other talented postdoctoral fellows working on a diverse array of topics in digital history.
Note: Commonwealth of Virginia policies require candidates to have completed all requirements for their degree prior to their first day of employment. Students with a firm defense date for their degree can apply, but cannot work at George Mason as a postdoctoral fellow unless they have completed all requirements for the degree prior to the first day of employment.
