The Henry Royce Institute (Royce), a UKRI-funded national institute, supports advanced materials research and innovation. With its Hub at The University of Manchester, the Institute has spokes at ten Partner and Associate organisations: the Universities of Sheffield, Leeds, Liverpool, Cambridge, Cranfield, Oxford and Imperial College London, as well as at the UK Atomic Energy Authority, the National Nuclear Laboratory and the Advanced Forming Research Centre Catapult.
The data curation team will initially consist of two curators, one with a bias towards technical aspects of research data management (Data Curator – Technical Focus) and the other with a bias to towards supporting cultural change and advocating best practice (Data Curator – Cultural Focus). This role is for Data Curator – Cultural Focus and the post holder will be the lead curator for cultural and advocacy responsibilities. They will also support responsibilities of the Data Curator – Technical Focus and there will be shared responsibilities core to both roles.
Overall Purpose of the Role
The Data Curation Team aims are:
To assist the Royce community in the shift to best-practice management of research data.
To help develop the data archiving and retrieval infrastructure and its functionality and capability.
The Curators will also be required to engage with national and international materials research data infrastructure initiatives. They will be expected to act as advocates for these new ways of working – helping those of us who are enthusiastic for a change in culture, encouraging those who are suspicious of the benefits of storing their data for wider consumption to take part, and helping to find ways to lower barriers to adoption of best practice.
