We're hiring - come and join us

We've got a new job opening at the DCC following the departure of Jonathan Rans, our training and skills lead, in November. We're looking for someone to join us in Edinburgh as a Research Data Specialist who will take the lead in our programme of skills development. The job, however, is about much more than training.

Depending on your skills and interests you'll spend time on other areas of DCC activity as well. In recent months, these have included consultancy for universities in the UK and Malaysia, for funders such as the ERC and Wellcome Trust and for UK national research facilities. We're also partners in European initiatives such as EOSCPilot, RDA Europe 4 and Openaire and run services such as DMPonline for customers around the world. There's also our annual conference, IDCC, Uk events such as the Research Data Management Forum and much more. We offer flexible working practices and a supportive working environment with a diverse and friendly team in Edinburgh and Glasgow. We encourage applications from all communities.

Applications close at 1700 GMT on Monday January 15th. We expect interviews to be in the week commencing February 5th. To apply, you'll need to use the University of Edinburgh's online recruitment system. If you already have experience in digital curation or research data management and experience of creating or delivering training, this is an ideal opportunity to broaden your knowledge and experience. We look forward to hearing from you.
