Here's an excerpt from the ad:
Digital Antiquity, a national initiative funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, seeks a Technology Director / Lead Software Engineer to lead the technical development of a start-up national digital repository for archaeological documents and data. This exciting cyberinfrastructure initiative provides an excellent career opportunity in informatics and software development in the stimulating environment of a major research university.
The repository, the Digital Archaeological Record (tDAR), has a conceptual design focusing on preservation and access with user-initiated ingest of data, documents, and associated metadata. The repository has been developed through planning grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Mellon Foundation. Key components have been prototyped with substantial funding from NSF.
We seek an individual with expertise in data management and software development. The individual must have experience in project management that will enable her or him to lead the technical development of a state-of-the-art, sustainable digital repository. The project presents challenges related to heterogeneous data and knowledge management; user-centric information system design; scalable and sustainable system design and engineering; and access control and rights management.
Under the general direction of Digital Antiquity’s Executive Director and Board of Directors, the Digital Antiquity Technology Director/Lead Software Engineer will guide the transition from prototype to the full implementation of a trusted digital repository. The incumbent will supervise the software team, manage the development process, and contribute to the effective functioning of the user support staff. The candidate should be committed to the success of the project and must have inter-disciplinary communications skills to work effectively with domain experts to ensure that the repository is highly responsive to user needs.
