Dear colleagues,

The Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory (CWRC) seeks a project  
manager to play a vital role in developing online infrastructure for  
humanities scholars. CWRC will produce a virtual research environment  
for the study of writing in Canada, in partnership with other open- 
source software initiatives and with literary researchers. It will  
build a repository, a layer of services for the production, use, and  
analysis of repository and federated materials, and an interface. More  
information about the project is available at: http://cwrc.cs.ualberta.ca/index.php/General:CWRC.

Reporting to the Project Leader, the project manager will be a full

member, with depth of knowledge in literary studies and familiarity

infrastructure development, coordinating user needs analysis,  
assisting in developing specifications for contract work and  
partnership agreements, evaluating work in progress and completed, and  
managing one or more subprojects in the software development process.  
The project manager will help represent the project to the University,  
project partners, and external communities. We need someone with  
strong prioritizing, organizational and problem-solving skills,  
excellent communication and interpersonal skills, the confidence to  
work independently, and the ability to establish and maintain quality  
relationships with CWRC researchers, partners, employees, and  

The position is a full-time Trust/Research academic staff position,  
with benefits, at the University of Alberta for a minimum of three
