About us

This post will work as part of UCL’s Information Services Division (ISD) Faculty IT & Partnering team which provides local specialist applications and systems support and IT strategic business partnering for users in the School of Life and Medical Sciences, in the Institute of Education, the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment and to departments in the Faculties of Arts & Humanities, Social & Historical Sciences and Laws.

About the role

We are looking for someone to manage the geography department’s research technology infrastructure and be creative in taking the department/faculty research computing capabilities forward. Although your work will focus on the use of data and computers in support of research and research-led teaching, you will work closely with colleagues in the department who support administrative IT systems and will have a leadership role within the departmental IT community.

As a Departmental Research Technology professional, you will work as part of a team based within the Social and Historical Sciences faculty. There will be a strong matrix reporting line into the Department Computing Committee who are a part of the communities and cultures of ISD, ARC, and the Department. Your responsibilities will involve the following:

  • You will help to deliver the services and systems which make data and compute-intensive research possible, support the discovery and innovation of tools, practices and systems in this field.
  • This role is both research, contributing to the scholarly life of the university, and a professional service role, managing and delivering shared capabilities and following professional best practice.

The position requires several focuses including but not exclusive to the following:

  • Provide specialist knowledge, support and subject matter expertise
  • Engagement with researchers to provide specialist advice and consultative services
  • Leadership, handling of sensitive data, governance and system/infrastructure security
  • Design and deliver bespoke or specialist technology solutions for the faculty.

In the event we get a high number of applications, we may close the advert early before the published closing date. As a minimum we will keep all adverts open for 2 weeks.
