UEA Library is looking for an expert to enhance our work on open research.
We are a forward-thinking library service committed to promoting open and equitable access to research. Our library is at the heart of this mission, serving as a hub for intellectual discovery and collaboration.
Working closely with faculty and students, the role will facilitate initiatives that promote the principles of open research. The role will require collaborative working across faculties, professional services and the wider sector. This includes taking a pro-active role in the prestigious Research Libraries UK Group network.
You will also manage the institutional open access repository and support the development of Open Access initiatives including rights retention.
You will need to have a sound understanding of scholarly communications and the research lifecycle. You will also need to be confident using Microsoft 365 and creating training materials. There will also be opportunities to be involved in innovative projects such as digital preservation.
UEA Library aims to offer our users an inclusive service, and you will understand the importance of equality, diversity and inclusion in all communication.
If you’re excited about the role and think you can meet the essential criteria, we welcome your application. If you would like to discuss the role before applying, do contact Nicholas Lewis, Library Director with any questions and we would be happy to arrange an informal discussion (Nicholas.firstname.lastname@example.org).
Hybrid working is likely to be possible with this role but is not guaranteed. Flexibility will be required as the role includes advocacy which often works better face to face. As a rough guide we would expect 60/40 on site to remote working, i.e., approximately 3 days a week in the office.
This full-time post is available on an indefinite basis.
UEA offers a variety of flexible working options and although this role is advertised on a full-time basis, we encourage applications from individuals who would prefer a flexible working pattern including annualised hours, compressed working hours, part time, job share, term-time only and/or hybrid working. Details of preferred hours should be stated in the personal statement and will be discussed further at interview.
Further information on our great benefits package, including 44 days annual leave inclusive of Bank Holidays and University Customary days (pro rata for part-time), can be found on our benefits page.
Closing date: Friday 27 October 2023
