THIS POST MAY ALSO BE OFFERED AS A SECONDMENT OPPORTUNITY.



We have an exciting opportunity for a positive and proactive figure to play a
key role in supporting digital researchers and improving the University’s
capacity to share the full breadth of its unparalleled collections and world-
leading research by providing a sustainable solution for our large-scale
digital research projects in humanities disciplines.



You will be excited about the opportunity to channel the passion and
enthusiasm of a very large and active Digital Humanities community, which
spans a variety of disciplines in different areas of the University. The
successful applicant will join the Digital Humanities Sustainability (DHS)
Project delivery team, and bring a wealth of subject-matter knowledge and
relevant experience of working closely with a range of diverse stakeholders in
a complex organisational setting to deliver significant benefits and business
change activities. This is a joint role between the Bodleian Libraries and the
Humanities Division, supported by IT Services; acknowledging the far reaching
and diverse nature of research which takes place in the name of ‘Digital
Humanities’ and the complex support structures that exist. This role is full-
time and fixed-term for 3 years in the first instance. Contract may be
extended subject to further funding being secured.



We need a highly motivated professional with a proven track-record of helping
to delivery successful initiatives, experience of building and maintaining
networks and communities of practice, and comfortable working in a complex and
vibrant organisation. You must be able to stimulate the trust, confidence and
enthusiasm of fellow professional services staff and academic colleagues in
what this project can achieve. You need to be an analytical thinker who knows
how to elicit and translate complex academic requirements into work package
specifications. We would also expect a demonstrable track-record delivering
collaborative projects to tight deadline, some knowledge of the issues and
trends in digital research/humanities, and a proven ability to develop strong
collaborative relationships with academic and professional staff at every
career stage. A first degree in a subject or discipline relevant to digital
research and/or humanities would be advantageous.



For an informal discussion about the post contact Damon Strange, Digital
Humanities Sustainability Project Manager (damon.strange@it.ox.ac.uk).



Applications must be made online. You will be required to upload a CV and
supporting statement as part of your application.

anticipate that interviews will likely be held early in the week commencing 10
February 2020.
