Advanced Research Computing (ARC) is an award-winning team based in IT Services which has earned a national and international profile for delivering high quality, underpinning research computing services.
The Research Engagement and Data Group (REDG) works in partnership with ARC’s Research Software Group and its Architecture, Infrastructure and Systems Group to provide a sector leading environment for computationally and data intensive research, catering for all academic disciplines. ARC’s specialist systems and services are collectively known as BEAR (the Birmingham Environment for Academic Research). For further information see www.birmingham.ac.uk/BEAR.
The nature of the users of BEAR services mean that ARC is a dynamic part of the organisation, working with some of the latest technology to give our researchers an advantage over their peers. The University of Birmingham has a record of sustained investment in these services while the Team has built a strong reputation on campus and in the Higher Education Sector for quality and innovation. It has more than doubled in size in the last two years.
We are looking for candidates with strong communication and organisational skills, with an in-depth understanding of the interaction between technology and research to enable them to communicate clearly about the benefits of the complex computing services and training available to researchers. Candidates should be educated to degree level (or equivalent qualification), with experience in data analysis and working in a team. Advertisement of our new training workshops is a key factor in the success of them, hence experience with social media and promotional material is required, and knowledge of promotional opportunities and contacts at the University would be beneficial.
It is possible that this part-time (0.4FTE) role could be carried out on a flexible basis, rather than fixed days of the week, but attendance at events may dictate certain days of work throughout the year.
