Research Developer, Department of Digital Humanities, King's College London

The Department of Digital Humanities, King's College London is looking for a highly motivated and technically sophisticated individual to join the research and development team. The position will involve data modelling and analysis, and the design and development of both editorial and administrative tools, and public facing web applications, across three research projects in the department’s portfolio.

The post is located in the Department of Digital Humanities. The Department is an international leader in the application of technology in research in the arts and humanities, and in the social sciences. It is in the School of Arts and Humanities, and undertakes research on a collaborative basis across discipline, institutional and national boundaries: it has collaborative relationships across King’s College and with a large number of institutions and bodies in the UK and internationally.

The successful candidate for this position will have wide experience in modelling structured data and developing tools to search, query, retrieve and display them using relational databases, RDF, and related technologies; in designing, writing and modifying programs which facilitate content creation; and collaborating in the development of integrated interfaces for web publication.
Experience in creating and manipulating structured data with a range of RDB-related and web-delivery standards and technologies (SQL, SPARQL, Django/Python, Javascript/JQuery) is essential. Familiarity with ontologies, text processing techniques and standards-compliant XHTML and CSS is highly desirable, as is experience in the modelling of humanities data, especially that relating to manuscripts and documents. 

In addition you will need to have an understanding of how research is conducted in the humanities and social sciences and you will be expected to make a contribution to the departmental research profile. The successful candidate will need to be able to work effectively as part of a team, as well as independently. The successful candidate should have good communication skills and the ability to document their work in clear written English.

For an informal discussion of the post please contact Paul Vetch on 020 7848 1040 or via email at paul.vetch at kcl.ac.uk.

The closing date for receipt of applications is 28th November 2012.
