Position Type: Fixed Term
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.
