MITH is an internationally recognized research and development institute that is helping to transform the humanities by exploring and innovating digital technologies and new media. MITH is always looking to increase and deepen the expertise of our interdisciplinary team of humanities researchers and developers.

Why Work at MITH?

MITH’s strength is its collegial spirit, born of the value we place on our staff, their experiences, and their intellectual rigorousness. As we grow, we’re looking to attract staff with new talents to add to this mix. Brought together by a collaborative and creative ethos, we’ve embraced a commitment to open and public work that has impact in the humanities

Perks of the Job

Competitive salaries, flexible work hours, and joining MITH means that you’re eligible for university employee benefits, on-demand access to the Deena Larsen and Bill Bly Collections, and colleagues with over a decade of experience in digital humanities. We’re also a ton of fun. MITH has a Wii (and a Commodore 64) and Matt’s puns can stop a productive staff meeting in its tracks—if Neil hasn’t beat him to it.

Location, Location, Location

Situated ten miles from the National Mall just outside of Washington DC, MITH offers all of the opportunities that come from the libraries, museums, and cultural institutions of the area, many of whom are project partners. You will live and work thirty minutes from Baltimore, two hours from Philadelphia, and four hours from New York City . . . and you will be able to take advantage of BWI, Reagan, and Dulles Airports when you want to travel.
