*Apologies for cross-posting*

Cambridge University Library seeks energetic, creative and 
self-motivated individuals to join its digital library team in two new 
posts: Digital Library Developer and Digital Library Systems Manager and 
Developer.

Over the next few years, as a result of a substantial donation, 
Cambridge University Library is building a sophisticated platform for 
delivering its digitised collections. These two roles are critical in 
realising this vision and will enable those appointed to work at the 
leading edge of digital library development.

These are temporary posts, funded through to 31 August 2013, although 
additional funding is being sought to extend the programme beyond this 
date. Further details of each post and information about the application 
process are provided below.

Please note that applications must be made by noon on Monday 14 February.

Digital Library Developer (Foundations Project)
Grade: 8
Salary Range: £32,620 - £43,840 p.a

Limit of tenure 31 August 2013

Cambridge University Library is seeking to appoint an experienced Java 
developer to work on its Foundations digital library project for 2.5 
years from early 2011. The Foundations project is a strategic initiative 
of the Library, which aims to establish a state-of-the-art 
infrastructure for the production, preservation and online delivery of 
digitised content from its world-class collections.

Working within a core team of three, the appointee will lead development 
work for the project, adapting and developing software to support all 
aspects of the digital library infrastructure. An open source 
environment is envisaged for this project, so the appointee would be 
selecting and adapting existing open source tools, contributing code and 
developing new tools as required. The project will provide an 
opportunity for the appointee to work at the forefront of digital 
library and digital humanities initiatives.

Applicants should have a good honours degree in Computer Science or a 
related field and considerable experience of leading and delivering 
successful software development within contexts relevant to the project. 
Java and SQL experience is essential and experience with the JavaServer 
Faces framework and Lucene/Solr is desirable. In addition to excellent 
technical skills, we seek applicants with strong project management and 
communication skills, able to translate the vision and requirements of 
non-technical stakeholders into a clear programme of work.

Informal enquiries are welcomed by Grant Young, Digitisation and Digital 
Preservation Specialist on 012237 65576 or Patricia Killiard, Head of 
Electronic Services and Systems on 102233 33037.

Further particulars and an application form can be downloaded from the 
Library website at: http://www.lib.cam.ac.uk/Vacancies/ or are available 
from the Librarianís Personal Assistant, Cambridge University Library, 
West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9DR. Tel: (01223) 333045. E-mail: [log in to unmask]

Applications should include a CV and covering letter, contact details 
for three professional referees, and a completed CHRIS/6 application 
form and should be sent to the Personnel Officer not later than 12 noon 
on Monday 14 February, either by post to the above address or 
electronically to [log in to unmask] (but not both)


Closing Date: Monday 14 February 2011

system or institutional repository. The project will provide an 
opportunity for the appointee to work at the forefront of digital 
library and digital humanities initiatives.

Applicants should have a good honours degree in Computer Science or a 
related field and considerable expertise in Unix/Linux systems 
administration, large-scale storage systems and network security.

requirements of non-technical stakeholders into a suitable technical 
architecture and provide support to systems users.

Informal enquiries are welcomed by Grant Young, Digitisation and Digital
