Part-time Sustainable Digital Scholarship Project Officer

Applications for this vacancy closed on 2 August 2021 at 12:00PM
We have an exciting opportunity for a positive and proactive figure to play an
important 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.





The successful applicant will join the newly created Sustainable Digital
Scholarship (SDS) service and will play a key role in supporting the team and
researchers at the University. You will likely have had previous experience of
administrative processes and a background in customer service who can work
both as a member of a multi-disciplinary team and independently.





To be successful in this role, you will have sound organisation and
administration skills, and excellent interpersonal skills, with the ability to
communicate clearly with stakeholders (including senior Academic & Research
Staff). Competence using a range of computer-based and online applications is
essential, including some experience of using website content management
systems. Applicants must be able to organise their own workload and work to
deadlines. A first degree in a subject or discipline relevant to digital
research and/or Humanities would be advantageous, but not essential.





Some experience of project management or working with research database
systems / repositories would be an advantage too. Ideally applicants will have
experience in using current University systems, and an understanding of the
processes, policies and procedures associated with working within the Higher
Education sector.





If, for any reason, you have taken a career break or have had an atypical
career and wish to disclose this in your application, the selection committee
will take this into account. The selection committee will also be mindful of
the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic may have had on candidates’ careers as a
result of additional caring responsibilities or other factors.





For an informal discussion about the post contact Alwyn Collinson, Digital
Projects Manager, Humanities Division: alwyn.collinson@humanities.ox.ac.uk





This role is being offered part-time, 15 hours a week (0.4FTE) and fixed term

may be extended subject to further funding being secured.

confirm that they have discussed the secondment with their line manager.





Job shares will be considered. We are also exploring opportunities for this
vacancy to be filled by someone interested in working largely remotely / from
home.

supporting statement as part of your application. The deadline for
