Here's an excerpt from the ad (STARS Requisition no. 8666BR):
Yale’s Office of Digital Assets and Infrastructure (ODAI) is seeking a highly motivated digital information expert to pursue innovative approaches to challenging issues in the discovery of diverse digital assets, in interoperability across disparate collections, in enhancement of collaborative scholarly environments, and in development of effective digital publishing platforms.
ODAI has undertaken an initiative to jointly define and build essential research-based and domain-informed components of a coherent technical infrastructure and a comprehensive policy layer for research support. This program is strategically aligned with other digital infrastructure initiatives in ODAI including the development of digital preservation services with a secure storage environment.
The Digital Information Research Specialist will play an important role in shaping ODAI’s involvement in this development of campus-wide support for e-science, digital data curation, and cyberscholarship for all disciplines. Reporting to the ODAI Director, he or she will work closely with the ODAI Information Architect and Digital Information Strategic Analysts.
- Work at the intersection of digital data, technology and metadata, and will be responsible for consultation, assessment and articulating requirements to facilitate all aspects of digital data curation and cross collection discovery. To be successful, communication, outreach and close collaboration will be essential in working with units across campus, including faculty, libraries, museums and galleries, information technologists, the ODAI task forces and researchers across the many disciplines engaged in digital data management.
- Conduct advanced research in and articulate potential implementation strategies related to scientific research trends, data documentation tools, topic modeling, schema and ontology development and standards important for data exchange, reuse and interoperability. Evaluate and apply various information technology tools for metadata manipulation and script execution.
