About the Role
Open Research is an innovative and fast growing area of service provision, working collaboratively with internal and external HE partners to bring about far reaching positive changes to the scholarly dissemination ecosystem of researchers, funders, and publishers. We are recruiting for a second Open Research Co-ordinator to provide support across the team, helping to advance the open agenda for the benefit of researchers, students, and the general public.
You will work closely with the managers in the team, supporting them with service provision around scholarly subscriptions, open access publishing, and research data management. You will help to co-ordinate and supervise the work of Senior Library Assistants and Library Assistants, guiding and supporting them. You will play a particularly important role in conducting data analysis and producing insights from that data, to assess and help implement alternative, sustainable models for journal subscriptions and OA publishing.
Along with all members of L&C, you will be required to participate in some frontline service delivery, including contributing towards a rota for evening and weekend working.
This is a really exciting opportunity for candidates looking to work within open research – whether as a step-up or sideways move from another area, who wish to utilise their skills in co-ordinating tasks and people, manipulating and understanding data, and constructive problem solving. Experience/ expertise in open access publishing, research data management, or subscriptions management would be advantageous.
We encourage applications from candidates who have experience from both within and outside of the Higher Education sector where they can demonstrate the skills needed to succeed in this role.
This post will be offered on an indefinite contract.
