I am happy to announce an exciting opportunity available in our rapidly
expanding Digital Library Services Department within the Hesburgh Libraries at
the University of Notre Dame.

Reporting to the Digital Library Services Department Head, we are seeking a
senior candidate with strong software development and leadership skills to
lead and implement automated services to support digital initiatives for both
the Hesburgh Libraries and the wider campus community. Collaborating with the
Digital Library Services Department Head and Digital Library Applications
Lead, the incumbent will lead digital library infrastructure design to ensure
access, discovery, security, data integrity, and preservation of unique
library collections, campus research data, and conference event data. The
incumbent will lead creation of complex software services to automate capture
of metadata, archive data files, transform image and video files, automate
digitization, and aggregate information from multiple sources. Because this is
an area with constantly shifting needs, this individual must have a strong
foundation in server-side software design as well as a high aptitude for
mastering new skills and technologies quickly. This position will participate
in cross departmental and organizational groups with partners from the Center
for Research Computing (CRC), OIT, University Archives, and researchers to
support research data management efforts throughout campus. This position will
coordinate the efforts of multiple developers across multiple projects.

In collaboration with universities such as Stanford, Virginia, and University
of Hull, the incumbent will also contribute to an open source project called
Hydra ( to create groundbreaking digital library
applications, tools, and services. Faculty, researchers, students, and staff
will benefit directly from this partnership through solutions created for
preserving data, building rich discovery systems, managing descriptive
information, and sharing information across multiple groups and institutions
required by research projects and data management services mandated by grant
funding agencies such as NSF.

*Note: There are also a few extra benefits like guaranteed opportunity to purchase football tickets every year, among others!
