Job Overview

Library Services (Resources & Systems)
0.6, Temporary until end of March 2013

Why Chose Us?

University of the Arts London is a vibrant world centre for innovation, drawing together six Colleges with international reputations in art, design, fashion, communication and performing arts. Library Services is a University wide department delivering high quality services in support of teaching, learning and research.

The Role

The main purpose of the role is to ensure the successful delivery of the University’s participation in the JISC funded KAPTUR project.
The aim of the KAPTUR project is to discover, create and pilot a model of best practice in the management of research data in the visual arts. The project is led by the Visual Arts Data Service (VADS) at University for the Creative Arts: the other partners are the University of the Arts London, Goldsmiths University of London, and Glasgow School of Art.

The four institutional partners will support the creation of the model, then apply, test and pilot it within their respective institutions. The results will be fed back into the model, which will be revised and then published freely to the wider higher education community for use and reuse.

The KAPTUR project was initiated in October 2011, and concludes on 31st of March 2013: the vacancy is caused by the departure of the current post-holder. The project is well advanced, and the post-holder would bring the project to a successful conclusion, including technical realisation, the development of training materials and project dissemination.

The post holder will also engage with the Digital Curation Centre (DCC). DCC are providing support to the University in the establishment and embedding of research data management policy as part of their institutional engagement programme. This work compliments the activities of the KAPTUR project.

Though line-managed within Library Services the post-holder will work closely with RMA staff and the research community at the University, and meet regularly with the Director of Research Management and Administration.

Your Profile

With a relevant professional qualification in library or information studies, or equivalent, you will have knowledge of developments in research data policy and management, and awareness of research culture and practice in Higher Education, particularly in a creative arts environment

In return, University of the Arts London offers generous leave, a final salary pension and a commitment to your continuing personal development and training in an environment that encourages excellence, creativity and diversity. Relocation assistance is available.
