Digital Products Coordinator -- position available at Open Access publisher in the UK

Open Book Publishers is the leading Open Access publisher in the HSS in the UK and to date we have had over 1 million book visits from around the world; we have published 117 top-quality and rigorously peer-reviewed books by some of the world's leading scholars, including Amartya Sen, Lionel Gossman and Noam Chomsky; and all our books are available to read free of charge in their entirety and in affordable digital editions and as high-quality paperbacks and hardbacks.

We're looking for a full time Digital Products Coordinator. The successful candidate will be responsible for creating and maintaining OBP's range of digital products, formatting text, images and audio/visual files for publication, creating and maintaining metadata for our titles, and managing and expanding the distribution network for our digital content. The position will be particularly suitable for a person with good IT skills, excellent organisational skills and a genuine interest in Open Access and academic publishing. A good working knowledge of software packages such as InDesign, Photoshop, Word and Excel would be an advantage, as would experience in areas such as Digital Humanities, Digital Publishing, LaTex or Open Source software development.

Dears colleagues,

The Appropriations of Open Knowledge team is recruiting two postdoctoral
researchers.

The Appropriations of Open Knowledge project aims to understand usages on
the OpenEdition platforms by seeking correlations between the content and
usages identified in the literature (the long tail, the sleeping beauty,
the unexpected reader and the silent conversation). The idea is to closely
compare the usages and the editorial and linguistic characteristics of the
content in order to develop a typology of the appropriations and citation
contexts, so as to identify scenarios involving the propagation and
appropriation of scientific information and to describe the literacies of
different populations of readers in the dissemination of scientific culture.

The project has received funding from Excellence Initiative of
Aix-Marseille University - AMIDEX, a French “Investissements d’Avenir”
programme

Deadline: 2018-04-25


1. Postdoctoral position in the Laboratoire d’Informatique et Systèmes
(LIS, UMR 7020)

Missions

The candidate selected must be able to analyse the OpenEdition logs and
associated content using essentially unsupervised digital approaches
(classification, segmentation, linkages on the basis of similarities,
etc.), in order to build typical user profiles. At a later stage, the
contexts of the bibliographic references present in the consulted content
will also be analysed in order to establish citation profiles, which, in
turn, will contribute to the user profiles.

The various proposed approaches will be associated with those developed by
the selected candidate, conjointly with the IMSIC. This will raise the
issue of the intersection of digital approaches and symbolic approaches,
the exploitation of terminologies in relation to probabilistic models, etc.

Competencies

The candidate should have a Computer Science PhD in one of the following
fields:

· information retrieval;
· automatic language processing;
· text mining, data mining.

He or she should have strong skills in automatic learning approaches,
probabilistic methods, and, if possible, graph mining.

The selected candidate will be asked to develop scalabale software tools.
Knowledge of Python language would be a plus.

Posting location

The postdoctoral researcher will be posted to the Laboratoire
d’Informatique et Systèmes (LIS, UMR 7020 – Informatics and Systems
Laboratory):

Aix Marseille Université – Campus de Saint Jérôme – Bat. Polytech
52, av. Escadrille Normandie Niemen
13397 Marseille Cedex 20

The postdoc will also be hosted by OpenEdition Center (USR 2004):

OpenEdition
Technopôle de Château-Gombert – Bâtiment C
22, rue John Maynard Keynes
13013 Marseille

The postdoc will work closely with partner teams (USR OpenEdition Center,
UMR LIS, EA IMSIC, etc.), and under the supervision of the project
researchers. He or she will also need to work closely with the IMSIC
postdoc.

The postdoc will be tasked with writing research and synthesis texts to
contribute to thinking in this area. These may be published on the
OpenEdition Lab research blog (http://lab.hypotheses.org/) and in
scientific publications.

Contract description

Date available: 1 September 2018
Length of contract: 12 months, full time
Salary: €2,466.38/month (gross)
Qualification: Computer Science PhD

Deadline for applications: 25 April 2018

2. Postdoctoral position at the Institut Méditerranéen des Sciences de
l’Information et de la Communication (IMSIC)

Competencies

The candidate should have a PhD in one of the following areas:

· Linguistics – Computer Science (natural-language processing, NLP);
· Computational terminology, or terminology and artificial intelligence;
· Automatic discourse analysis or lexicometrics;
· Information retrieval.

He or she should have programming skills (Python, R) and knowledge of
methods of text mining and analysis of textual corpora.

Knowledge of information visualization tools (Gephi, etc.) would be a plus.

The selected candidate must be able to speak French, although knowledge of
English would also be a plus.

Missions

The selected candidate will analyse the contexts in which OpenEdition
content is reused and cited:

Research the contexts in which OpenEdition content is reappropriated

1. Produce a typology of these contexts of appropriation
2. Write rules to model the identification of these contexts
3. Suggest methods (theories, tools, approaches) enabling the
identification and thus the extraction of these contexts
4. At the end of the postdoc, deliver a proof of concept (an implemented
processing chain).

Posting location

The postdoc will be posted to the Institut Méditerranéen des Sciences de
l’Information et de la Communication (IMSIC – Mediterranean Institute of
Information and Communication Sciences):

Aix Marseille Université – IMSIC
21, rue Virgile Marron
