 Research Data Services Postdoctoral Fellow
University of Virginia
Charlottesville

The University of Virginia Library seeks applications from postdoctoral
candidates in the sciences or social sciences for a two-year position working
with a growing Research Data Services team. The Library's Research Data
Services is dedicated to the collaborative collection, management, use, and
preservation of data across the research lifecycle. Developed to integrate
multiple existing data services - data and metadata management, statistical
analysis and GIS support, and data discovery and collections - Research Data
services offers coordinated support services and expertise for data-intensive
research and teaching.

  
The Fellow will work with faculty and graduate students as well as Library
staff and other administrative and support centers throughout the University
to build and to assess the Library's Research Data Services, which include
data discovery and new collection development, data analysis and
visualization, and data management planning, sharing and archiving. The
position will serve as a bridge between the University research communities
engaged in data-intensive research and the data services offered by the
Library. Candidates must be service-oriented and have direct experience with
conducting data-intensive research in a science or social science discipline,
including the analysis and management of research data.

  
Position Goals

  * Contribute to the development of research data training opportunities within the library to bridge library expertise with domain-specific research processes in the sciences or social sciences;
  * Contribute to evolving partnerships between the Library and existing and new quantitative research initiatives (e.g., Data Science Institute) by supporting data-intensive research or teaching activities in one or more of these areas: data collection, extraction, integration, analysis, description, or preservation;
  * Design and implement assessment methods to evaluate the impact of research data services on research outcomes.
  
Key Responsibilities

  * Engage in targeted outreach within relevant disciplines to raise awareness of Library Research Data Services and to identify data collections and curation opportunities as well as data service support needs;
  * Develop research projects relevant to a specific Library Research Data Service area (data collection, extraction, organization, description, preservation, integration, visualization) with opportunities for scholarly engagement in areas related to the Fellow's research interests;
  * Contribute to the Library's Research Data Services as determined by skills and interests, e.g., data discovery and collection development; statistical or GIS consulting; metadata schema development, data management planning and institutional repository preservation.
  
Required Qualifications

  * Ph.D. in a science or social science discipline with experience analyzing or managing quantitative data;
  * Demonstrated understanding of scientific research methods;
  * Strong teaching skills and ability to communicate with scholars across disciplines;
  * Experience and interest in working in a collaborative environment.
  
Desired Qualifications

  * Experience with data-oriented research technologies relevant to data analysis, computation, or data curation;
  * Experience coordinating and promoting programs and services;
  * Understanding of discipline-specific data curation practices.
  
Professional Development

  
The fellow will be part of a new and active Research Data Services team that
includes statistical and GIS consultants; data management planning personnel
active in the development of the DMP Tool; and data and metadata librarians.
In addition, Library Research Data Services has strong connections to academic
departments across the University, and the Fellow is encouraged to build on
and expand this network. The Fellow will receive local support for
professional development activities.

  
Salary and Benefits

  
This is a full-time, 24-month, academic professional position with a salary of
$60,000 plus excellent benefits.

  
Institutional Environment

  
Founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819, the University of Virginia sustains the
ideal of developing, through education, leaders who are well-prepared to help
shape the future of the nation and the world. The University community
includes approximately 2,100 faculty, 10,000 staff members, 13,700
undergraduates and 6,600 graduate and professional students within the
historic and picturesque Grounds. The University of Virginia is located in
Charlottesville, a setting with natural beauty and significant historical
relevance in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Charlottesville is
often ranked among the best places to life in the United States.

  
The University of Virginia is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer
committed to diversity, equity, and inclusiveness.
