Names Project recruiting

Posted in recruitment by Amanda Hill on 8 October, 2009

The British Library are recruiting an Analyst for the Names Project. The information below is taken from the job details on their recruitment site.

Ref: O&S00184
Location: Boston Spa, Yorkshire
Position Type: Fixed Term
Specialism: Cataloguers
Salary: £22,063 – £23,896

Fixed term appointment for 2 years

Closing date: 18 October 2009

A. Rose by any other name might be, “Alex” to her friends, “Dr. Alexandra Rose”, to her students, “Dr. Alexandra N. Rose”, to her funders and, “A.N. Rose, PhD”, to her publishers; and she is not the only A. Rose. For the higher education and research communities identification of researchers and authors is difficult. The Names 2 Project aims to develop innovative and scalable solutions to problems of identification, attribution and affiliation.

We are recruiting an Analyst to help turn this project from a concept to a service. This is a full time, fixed term post, funded for 2 years by JISC (Joint Information Systems Committee). Names 2 is led by Mimas, based at the University of Manchester.

The successful candidate will have excellent communications skills and work effectively to deadlines. Experience of cataloguing at a professional level, using internationally recognised standards is essential. First hand knowledge or experience of institutional repositories or authority control will be an advantage. The post holder will work as part of a distributed project team.

For an informal discussion about this role please contact Alan Danskin on 01937 546669.
