Lead Digital Research Services Facilitator

The University of Edinburgh

Location: Central Edinburgh

You will be responsible for maintaining close relationships between active researchers and the providers of advanced digital services at the University of Edinburgh, including, for example the UK supercomputing facility ARCHER, Edinburgh’s computing and data facilities, EDINA and the Digital Curation Centre.

With a proven track record of developing close relationships with researchers, you will provide support mechanisms for researchers and administrative staff in developing funding proposals including such services and supporting researchers in accessing digital research services throughout the research project life cycle.

We will be recruiting Facilitators to support each of the University’s Colleges and therefore are keen to see applications from across the research landscape, including science and engineering, clinical and biological sciences and arts, humanities and social sciences.

Facilitators will spend much of their time embedded in the appropriate College working directly with researchers. The team lead will therefore need to be confident in managing a distributed team.

In addition to excellent communication and managerial skills, you will be able to motivate and organise a highly skilled team and contribute to liaison with management and researchers.

If you feel able to run a team working with world-leading researchers and a world-leading infrastructure in a challenging research environment, please apply.

The post is full-time, open-ended and is available from the end of February 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.

We anticipate interviews will be held in the week commencing 12th February 2018.

Closing date: Friday 26th January 2018 at 5pm (GMT).
