DIGHUMLAB is a newly established research infrastructure with the goal of
supporting digital humanities and social science research by providing common
virtual access to relevant digital and digitised resources for the humanities
and the social sciences.

We are looking for a computer scientist, software engineer, or a person with
similar qualifications to work for a distributed common secretariat, headed by
the project leader (based in Aarhus). Employment will be on a project basis
for a 5-year period, and the workplace will be the University of Copenhagen,
Centre for Language Technology (www.cst.ku.dk). You will report to the
DIGHUMLABproject leader but both you and your personal line manager will be
located at the University of Copenhagen. Because of the distributed nature of
DIGHUMLAB, you will be required to travel to Odense, Aarhus, and Aalborg, and
also to European partners and meetings.

  
**Job content**  
You will be in charge of the development and maintenance of the technical
research infrastructure, based on user requirements related to the three
DIGHUMLAB themes and to Denmark's participation in the international research
infrastructures CLARIN ERIC and DARIAH and TELEARC. CLARIN.DK is based at the
University of Copenhagen and has already built a data repository with a web

and research partners.

Your job is not only to oversee and coordinate the development and maintenance
of DIGHUMLAB digital assets and equipment, but also to act as an advisor to
humanities scholars on appropriate technology and services, to coordinate
technical requirements for scholars, and to translate their ideas into
technical specifications and solutions. It is important that you can liaise
and mediate between technical and scholarly requirements, and help develop
tools to integrate research aims with online and offline digital technology
and related resources. This requires the ability to communicate via media and
in person, via both technical documentation and material designed for non-
specialists.

• Experience with designing, building, and deploying distributed systems,
including experience with UNIX/Linux systems.

• A strong command of programming languages and web-based scripting such as C,
SQL, Java, PHP, AJAX and Perl or Python; related skills such as XML,
JavaScript, CSS.

• Ability to configure and administer distributed databases and webservers.

• Danish and English, spoken and written.

• Ability to present technical material to both technical and non-technical
audiences, and to train others.

  
**Preferable**  
• A grasp of appropriate object modelling and specification languages

• Knowledge of web-based front ends and related interface design issues

• Experience in web-data analysis and the design of web-based surveys.

• An interest in digital humanities and in research infrastructures in
general.

• Any NOLDUS-related skills (such as eyetracking and survey software, see
http://www.noldus.com/) would be an advantage.

  
**Personal qualifications**  
You are

• interested in creating and managing web-based collections and
infrastructures at the national level

• interested in collaborating internationally

• well-organised, with an ability to take a comprehensive view

• able to work in a project organization, able to collaborate, but also able
to work on your own
