Dr Jim Clifford, postdoctoral fellow at York University on the Trading Consequences project, has accepted a tenure-track job at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon beginning 1 July 2013. Jim’s work on this digital humanities project undoubtedly contributed to his success. Hired as an Environmental Historian, Jim joins the History Department and contributes to their existing strength in environmental and digital history. He will remain a core researcher on the Trading Consequences team after he takes up this new position, and we will apply to have him listed as a co-applicant on the SSHRC component of the grant.
In addition to this career success, Jim was also awarded a SSHRC postdoctoral fellowship, which he has declined, in order to take up the position in Saskatoon. He also recently received word that he has been offered a visiting fellowship at the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich. Congratulations, Jim!
