The University of Minnesota Libraries are recruiting a Spatial Data Analyst/Curator.
Here's an excerpt from the ad:
Reporting to the Head of the John R. Borchert Map Library, and working closely with the U-Spatial Data Core team, the Libraries Research Data Management/Curation Initiative, the University Digital Conservancy program, and other Libraries and campus geospatial information services, the Spatial Data Analyst/Curator holds primary responsibilities in these areas:
- Consultation and Advocacy—consults with University faculty, staff, and students from across the University on policy and procedural issues related to the creation, management and dissemination of spatial data assets. . . .
- Content Recruitment—Develop and execute a multi-year, community engagement strategy to acquire and build a corpus of digital spatial data for access and preservation via U-Spatial. . . .
- Workflow Analysis and Process Development—analyzes user workflows and data flows to inform the design and development of low-barrier processes for content submission into the access and repository systems used by U-Spatial (i.e., geoportal federated web application access system, and a DPS-digital preservation repository management system). . . .
- Metadata Management—standards, creation, transformation, ingest.
