Candidates for the Research Data Management Consultant role should have a strong understanding of academic research, knowledge of the research life cycle, and should be highly motivated to develop collaborative relationships both within the University Libraries and across campus.

●      Teach workshops and trainings on research data management best practices and digital research tools to both the campus and library communities.

●      As a member of the Research Data Services (RDS) team, jointly provide expert consultations on topics related to research data and methods and assist in the support of research tools including Open Science Framework, Overleaf, Mendeley, figshare, elements, altmetrics, ORCID, and electronic lab notebooks.

●      Work closely with other members of the RDS Team, which is comprised of experts in scholarly communication, open science, metadata, digital curation, data science, and disciplinary research workflows, to build and support RDM services and infrastructure.

●      Provide input and guidance on research repository workflows and data policies and assist directly with data deposits in occasional, complex cases.

●      Partner with liaison librarians to serve the research needs of specific disciplines.

●      Build relationships and collaborations with other units across the university who are involved in research, including the Office of the Vice Provost for Research, Office of Sponsored Programs, Office of Research Integrity and Compliance, Computing Services, Risk Management, the Institutional Review Board, and the Information Security Office.
