This full time, UKRI funded post is available from 1 May 2023 until 30 April 2024.
This role offers the opportunity for hybrid working – some time on campus and some from home.
Overseas appointments may also be considered.
You will support the work of Prof. Elena Isayev in the Faculty of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS), supporting the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Imagining Futures Through Un/Archived Pasts (IF) project, funded by UKRI/ Arts and Humanities Research Council.
We seek to recruit a Digital Repository Associate/Fellow to be part of Imagining Futures through Un/Archived Pasts – an international project which addresses the power of who decides whose history gets to be remembered into the future and how? Focusing on questions of authorship and custodianship, it explores the formation and erasure of narratives, heritage and archives (tangible and intangible) in contexts of rupture, post-conflict, reconstruction and displacement. This project is funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council, and forms part of the Network + initiative of the Global Challenges Research Fun.
You will work with IF international project partners and Lab leaders to determine and implement a tailored strategy for data ingestion and upload to a digital repository. You will seek out, propose, set up, develop and manage the most appropriate platform package for the IF digital repository and all aspects of digital asset ingest and publication, ensuring best practice, which includes managing rights and ethics, and developing new functions and activities in relation to the repository. The role will include building on previous scoping research and working with the Project Leader to deliver an online training programme in the curation and reliable transfer of project data, adhering to and developing best practises in digital humanities. You will be the point of contact for any repository and data related concerns as well as other IT issues.
