Job Description

We are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated individual with proven communication skills and a passion for open science to join our Research Data Service within the University of Bath Library.

The Research Data Librarian is responsible for delivering a comprehensive programme of guidance materials, workshops, and online training resources to support researchers throughout the University with their research data management needs. The post-holder will also use their experience and initiative to develop customised support for data management planning and will engage directly with the process of dataset publication.

You will join a dedicated, professional team of Library staff committed to the continual development of services to support the University’s strategy: to deliver world-class research and teaching, extend the University’s international influence, and enrich the student experience. We understand the importance of continued professional development for all Library staff in order to achieve this, and provide programmes of local opportunities, and support involvement in appropriate external activities.

The University of Bath is situated in the beautiful World Heritage City of Bath and is part of the GW4 group of leading Universities (with Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter). It is 15 minutes from Bristol by train and 90 minutes from London and Oxford.

The University has recently been named in the top 10 UK universities in the Times Higher Education (THE) “Table of Tables”, as well as achieving Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework this summer. Both accolades are representative of our commitment to excellence in research and learning.

Transferable experience from open data sectors as well as direct experience of academic research from postgraduate level upwards will be considered. Previous applicants need not apply.
