the Institutional Repository. Details are at:

The University of Cambridge is seeking an enthusiastic, experienced
individual to work within the Office of Scholarly Communication as the
Manager of Institutional Repository. The funding landscape in the UK now
requires that the outputs of funded research, such as research articles,
conference proceedings and supporting research data are made publicly
available. The University's DSpace repository houses the wide range of
research outputs of the University, ranging from published articles and
conference papers, through to datasets, theses, videos and molecules.

The post holder will work within the growing and friendly Office of
Scholarly Communication at the University Library. He/she will manage the
digital content of the institutional repository and provide assistance to
end users, including advice relating to third party copyright issues.
He/she will be also responsible for reviewing and where necessary,
modifying, the structure of digital collections in the repository, as well
as the organisation of various types of research outputs stored in the
repository. The role holder will participate in the ongoing upgrades and
integration of the repository within existing and future Library and
University systems. This will involve consideration of workflows that
increase efficiency and provide a positive experience for the users. The
Manager of Institutional Repository will stay abreast of developments in
discipline-specific and generic metadata standards, and technological
advancements in digital curation and preservation.

Applicants should have an understanding of the academic environment,
familiarity with a range of data formats, desktop software, and operating
systems, and be willing to learn. Applicants should have expert IT skills,
knowledge of Linux, command line, xml protocols, and the ability to
communicate technical information with clarity and effectiveness.
