Dear All,

The University of Exeter is seeking to expand its Digital Humanities Team with the following job opportunity:

Digital Humanities Analyst
Digital Humanities Team - Library & Culture Services / College of Humanities

Job reference: P53925
Closing date: 2016-11-24
Location: Exeter - Streatham Campus
Salary: £33,943 per annum
Generous holiday allowances, flexible working, pension scheme and relocation package (if applicable).

This new full-time post is available immediately on a permanent basis.

In order to support a growing portfolio of grant-funded research projects with digital outputs, the College is looking for an analyst to join Exeter's Digital Humanities Team. The successful applicant will collaborate with other analysts, developers and academic staff to deliver innovative and sustainable digital outputs. You will join a small team of DH practitioners to create new and exciting digital resources, provide bid-writing support and high-level technical advice to academic staff proposing new projects, and will take a leading role in advocating the adoption of digital methods in the College, in conjunction with Exeter's ongoing investment in our new Digital Humanities Lab.

You will be educated to degree level, ideally with a postgraduate qualification in a relevant discipline, and will have a strong background in Digital Humanities, with a track record of work in the field and demonstrable expertise in a wide range of technologies. You will bring specific in-depth skills and knowledge of appropriate technologies to extend or complement the current skillset of the team, and will be proactive in researching and adopting new technologies that will enhance DH provision at Exeter. Experience of historical data analysis would be an advantage, but not essential. You will be highly motivated, have excellent interpersonal and project management skills, have strong links within the global DH community, and be enthusiastic about open and collaborative development and research methods.
