Digital Preservation Specialist - Technical Officer/Research Software Engineer (Polonsky Fellow)
Bodleian Libraries Digital Library Systems and Services (BDLSS), Osney One, Osney Mead, Oxford
Grade 7: 30,738 - 37,768 with a discretionary range to 41,255 p.a. (pay award pending). An annual market pay supplement of up to 1,448 may also be payable and is subject to annual review
THIS POST MAY ALSO BE OFFERED AS A SECONDMENT OPPORTUNITY
The Bodleian Libraries, at the University of Oxford, and Cambridge University Library have received substantial funding from the Polonsky Foundation to appoint six Polonsky Digital Preservation Fellows (two technical posts, two outreach and training posts and two policy and planning posts) for a joint 2-year project. One of each post will be based at each institution, and will work collaboratively to address the development of systems and services to support the long-term preservation of the libraries' digitised and born-digital cultural heritage collections.
These posts offer an exciting opportunity to help shape the digital preservation activities at two of the world's foremost research libraries, and to share with others the knowledge and experience learned. Five of the posts have now been filled and we are seeking a Technical Officer/Research Software Engineer to join the team in Oxford.
As a Technical Officer/Research Software Engineer at Oxford you will undertake research and training to build upon your expertise in the technical issues surrounding digital preservation and your awareness of the tools, systems and projects that seek to address these issues. You will also develop and/or implement digital preservation applications and services within the Bodleian Libraries, contribute to the development of a business case and sustainability plan for digital preservation operations, disseminate the key findings of your work to at least one conference and submit one journal article per year based on your work in collaboration with colleagues.
You will work closely with the other Polonsky Fellows based at both Oxford and Cambridge and with colleagues in Bodleian Digital Library Systems and Services (BDLSS). Travel to other sites, conferences and institutions in the UK and internationally will be required.
You will have an honours degree or postgraduate diploma, preferably in library/information science or computer science, or equivalent skills and experience. You will also be able to demonstrate knowledge of at least two object orientated programming languages, have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and the ability to work as part of a matrix team and with stakeholders. You will have experience of implementing and documenting complex software, working with open source software, a version control system, and release management. A postgraduate qualification or equivalent experience in a field of relevance to digital preservation in any subject or discipline is desirable.
Whilst this is formally a Grade 7 role, we would welcome an application from you if you have potential but less experience and are seeking a development opportunity (appointment at Grade 6: 27,328 - 32,600 with a discretionary range to 35,609 p.a., pay award pending). The responsibilities will initially be adjusted accordingly and a development pathway will be agreed with you, with the expectation of training and mentoring you into the full Grade 7 role within an agreed timeframe (anticipated to be 1 year). This is an amazing opportunity for you to build on your current skills and experience.
We would also welcome an application from you if you are interested in doing this role as a secondment. Please discuss secondments with your line manager in the first instance, as you must have their agreement that you can be released and meet the secondment eligibility criteria before you submit an application.
This post is full-time and fixed-term for 2 years.
Benefits include 38 days leave (including bank holidays and fixed closures), a generous pension scheme, extensive training and development opportunities, access to travel and childcare schemes, free entry to colleges, discounted access to sporting facilities and a wide range of other staff discounts. For more details please see: www.admin.ox.ac.uk/personnel/staffinfo/benefits/<http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/personnel/staffinfo/benefits/>.
Owing to the nature of this post, candidates will be required to undertake a Disclosure Scotland check as well as a financial background check. The possession of a criminal record or poor financial background will not necessarily prevent an applicant from obtaining this post, as all cases are judged individually according to the nature of the role and information provided.
You are required to submit a CV and a Supporting Evidence Form as part of your application. This post is part of a pilot scheme testing a new Supporting Evidence form in place of the more usual 'supporting statement'. Please ensure that you carefully read the How to Apply section provided in the Job Description, which you can download below along with the required Supporting Evidence form.
Only applications received online before 12.00 noon on Monday 31 October 2016 can be considered. Interviews are anticipated to be held in week commencing 14 or 21 November 2016.

Best wishes,

Michael
