The Academic Job Wiki and MLA job list from last year (2012-2013) will have many examples. Last year was the sweet spot for jobs combining DH and poco. There was a UNC Charlotte job and a UConn job, plus a slew asking for DH as a secondary specialty.

It will be a 2:2 teaching load (reduced, probably to 1:2 in the first year), with start up research funds (I am told recently in the range of $10k-15k, though it is entirely subject to negotiation and budget conditions), and a great institutional interest in both graduate studies and DH. The position will be emphatically about Anglophone literature, I suspect (we are very short handed at the moment) and people will be expected to be able to teach other general courses in English literature (surveys, genres, first year, that type of thing). The University of Lethbridge doesn't really teach remedial composition and what composition is taught is not taught in English. So all your teaching would be literary/domain-specific.
