Research Software Engineer - Linked Data

Applications for this vacancy closed on 2 June 2021 at 12:00PM
THIS VACANCY MAY BE OFFERED AS A SECONDMENT OPPORTUNITY.





The Humanities Division and Bodleian Libraries seek an experienced individual
who will take responsibility for planning new, and supporting existing, linked
data research and advocating for Linked Data methodologies as part of the new
Digital Scholarship at Oxford (DISC) initiative. DISC is part of a large
University Strategic Research Fund investment over the next five years to
support the development of digital scholarship activities.





In this new role, you will be responsible for supporting the technical
developments as part of the Linked Art II project and a range of researchers
and projects throughout the University. You will work closely with the Digital
Projects Manager, the Head of the Centre for Digital Scholarship, a new
academic Director, and Research Software Engineer (RSE) staff across the
Bodleian Libraries, Oxford e-Research Centre, Computer Science Department and
IT Services.



We need someone with a high level of competency in linked data technologies
such as RDF, CIDOC-CRM, JSON or JSON-LD, RESTful API development, Python or
JavaScript, and who is also able to work with partners from a variety of
specialisms and backgrounds, particularly in the Humanities. You will be
strongly creative and have analytical and problems solving skills, as well as
the ability to organise and prioritise your work effectively.





You will spend the first part of the role working on the Linked Art II
project, working with partners in museums and galleries to develop Linked Art
‘exemplars’, and to implement some of these as proof of concept software
implementations. Following the end of this project, you will spend the next 18
months working with a range of digital scholars to contribute to the creation
and delivery of new research projects. Your work will be varied; you will work
with scholars from different departments and Divisions across the University,
as well as developers and practitioners from the Gardens, Libraries and
Museums. You will work on the first stages of research project development as
well as building finished products for major funded research projects. You
will design high quality sustainable software, which delivers research
outcomes, and support the development and release of new software within DISC.
You will provide some training for the next generation of digital scholars and
work with the Oxford, national and international software communities to
develop your own skills and continue your professional development.





The post is fixed-term for 2 years. While the post can be filled as a full-
time position, there is also flexibility to realise the post as a part-time
configuration over a longer period, particularly where this enables
continuation of parallel part-time positions within the cultural heritage
sector. For an informal discussion about the post, please contact to Megan
Gooch (megan.gooch@humanities.ox.ac.uk).





Internal applicants who wish to be considered on a secondment basis must
confirm that they have discussed the secondment with their line manager.

Applications must be submitted online. You will be required to upload a
supporting statement and CV as part of your application. The deadline for
applications is 12:00 noon on Wednesday 2 June 2021. Interviews are expected
to be held on Tuesday 15 June 2021.
