The University of Cambridge is committed to promoting and supporting the development of an Open Research culture, linking researchers and the wider community through shared knowledge to accelerate the pursuit of knowledge and foster international collaboration. We want our research culture to be the very best it can be, because we know that a good culture will attract the best researchers, and in looking after those researchers, we empower them to do their best work.

The role will establish and develop a Cambridge Open Research Community, bringing researchers across the university community together through regular online and in person events to enable exchange of expertise in open and rigorous research practices. They will develop an understanding of how research needs differ across disciplines and use this understanding to inform the development of open research policies and services as part of the University's Open Research Programme, leading projects to further develop these services. They will raise the profile of open research at Cambridge through internal and external engagement in collaboration with researchers and professional services leads across the university.
