Closing date: 11th March 2011

Research Technician, part time – Ligatus
Reference: 300081

University of the Arts London

Position Type: Temporary – Part time
Salary: £26,017 pro rata

Job Overview

One year fixed term contract, 20 hours per week.

University of the Arts London is a vibrant world centre for innovation, drawing together six Colleges with international reputations in art, design, fashion, communication and performing arts and a long involvement in the book arts and book conservation.

Ligatus is one of the University’s research centres that could transform the role of object documentation in digital humanities. It is set to combine traditional bookbinding and archiving knowledge with the latest
web technologies in a whole new way, making this role unique in its field.

At the moment, there is no system in place to manage the considerable volume of data Ligatus is accumulating. As part of the team, you will help to design a new system to organise, publish and optimise Ligatus digital collections. You will then manage and maintain the system, administering the digitised data.

Highly IT literate, you can use XML technologies and administer XML data, XML native databases, relational databases and simple type data. You can also deal with image quality issues and design, code, test and correct batch data processing scripts and macro-commands for both text and images.

Articulate, organised and team-focused, you have worked on digital humanities projects before and handled text encoding. Perhaps most importantly, you have an interest in the history of material culture, plus the ideas and enthusiasm needed to get a new research centre off the ground.

This is one of the two positions currently offered by Ligatus, with the second one being a part time Research Assistant.

In return, University of the Arts London offers generous leave, a final salary pension and a commitment to your continuing personal development and training in an environment that encourages excellence, creativity
and diversity.

• Assess and manage risks to cultural heritage in conflict situations
• Secure, salvage and stabilize a variety of cultural materials
