                Social Sciences Data Curation Fellow at Pennsylvania State University Libraries

                Posted in Digital Library Jobs on December 12th, 2013

                The Pennsylvania State University Libraries are recruiting a Social Sciences Data Curation Fellow.

                Here's an excerpt from the ad:

                The fellow's responsibilities will focus on three fundamental, interconnected areas: 1) investigation of current research data practices to assess curation needs; 2) collection planning, based on assessment, for local research data sets, exploring approaches to ensuring data quality and optimizing for access, use, and reuse of data; and 3) pilot project investigations of curation processes to inform operationalizing a data curation service. By concentrating on these three areas, the fellow will contribute to our understanding of the costs of implementing data curation services for the social sciences at Penn State. Also central to these efforts will be Penn State's repository service, ScholarSphere, developed in 2012 as a partnership of the Libraries and ITS. . . . The fellow's contributions will test and help expand ScholarSphere to meet the curation needs of research data, initially in the social sciences and potentially extending to data from other disciplines, depending on outcomes from the sets of activities described.

                This is a two-year, fixed-term appointment at the rank of assistant librarian. The Data Curation Services postdoctoral fellow will be based in the Libraries and expected to work in collaboration with a range of departments, both within and beyond the Libraries.
