NIEDERSÄCHSISCHE STAATS- UND UNIVERSITÄTSBIBLIOTHEK GÖTTINGEN

The Niedersächsische Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Göttingen (SUB) 
is  one of the largest scientific libraries in Germany. It has been 
involved in the research and development of digital research 
infrastructures and virtual  research environments for many years.

We are looking for a full-time research associate (salary class 13 TV-L) 
starting on the 1st of November 2010 for the EU project European 
Holocaust  Research Infrastructure (EHRI). The running term is nine 
months with the  possibility of an extension to a total of four years.

Sources about the holocaust are scattered over different archives 
throughout  Europe and beyond. They are organized in different language 
areas,  terminologies and reference rooms. The European Holocaust 
Research  Infrastructure (EHRI) project is designed to unify these 
heterogenic sources  and will establish an integrated research 
environment about the holocaust  (virtual research infrastructure). This 
includes the establishment of  coordinated forms of access, a virtual 
research environment with  comprehensive access to all relevant research 
data and the development of  authoritative standards and 
interoperability mechanisms.

The project is  funded by the EU. In the EHRI project the SUB will 
concentrate on designing the digital  infrastructure for the integration 
of data within EHRI (points of contact to  DARIAH and Driver/OpenAIRE). 
The SUB will also contribute to the development  of interaction 
mechanisms as Facetted-Browsing based on metadata and  Geo-Browsing 
(points of contact to Europeana-Connect). Main tasks:

* Development of concepts for the integration of metadata between the 
partner institutions and related initiatives

* Technical realization of the integration of metadata between the 
partner  institutions and related initiatives

* Development of concepts for the implementation of user interaction in 
the  portal, i.e. Facetted-Browsing and Geo-Browsing

* Technical implementation of the user interaction in the portal, i.e. 
Facetted-Browsing and Geo-Browsing

* Linkage of the technical infrastructure with the infrastructure of 
DARIAH  (i.e. Shibboleth, Identifier-System)

* Coordination of the SUB project management, especially in the area of 
EU  time sheet, reports and more

Required are:

* A successfully completed university education, preferably in the 
humanities with declared technical understanding or a degree in computer 
sciences with a broad understanding of Digital Humanities

* Competence in metadata and knowledge of well established metadata 
standards

* Knowledge of XML (TEI) and in the area of Linked Data

* Good organizational skills, good time management

* High communication competences in dealing with international partners, 
very good English skills

* Experience in the area of eHumanities and/or the EU context is of 
advantage

The SUB Göttingen is offering you an opportunity to work tightly 
embedded in national and international activities in the Research and 
Development Department. We offer a diversity of challenging tasks with 
highly motivated colleagues and a dynamic and unbureaucratic working 
environment with a high degree of individual responsibility and 
autonomy. If you have questions concerning the project please contact 
Dr. Heike Neuroth (neuroth at sub.uni-goettingen.de).

The University of Göttingen is an equal opportunities employer and 
places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for female 
scientists and scholars. Qualified women are therefore strongly 
encouraged to apply. Disabled persons with equivalent aptitude will be 
favored for the position.

Please send your application by the 15th of October 2010 to the Director 
of the Niedersächsischen Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Göttingen 
(SUB), Dr. Norbert Lossau, 37070 Göttingen. Applications per e-mail are 
welcome. Please send them to kanzlei at sub.uni-goettingen.de. Attention: 
Please only provide us with copies of your application papers. They will 
not be sent back unless you provide us with a stamped envelope, if you 
don't they will be destroyed after a retention period of five months.
