Established in 2008, the Centre for e-Research (CeRch) is a research centre located in the Department of Digital Humanities (DDH) to facilitate interdisciplinary, institutional, national and international collaboration.
The Centre works collaboratively with researchers, research teams and groups, and as partners in research projects across King’s College London. It also works in partnership with other UK HE, with European institutions, and internationally with HE library and research institutes. It has an extensive project portfolio funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC), the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), and the European Commission and has attracted over £3 million of research income since 2008.
The Centre is seeking a Research Developer in dynamic web development including implementation of front-end interfaces. The Researcher will work across two major European Commission funded research infrastructure projects: the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI) (www.ehri-project.eu) and Data Service Infrastructure for the Social Sciences and the Humanities (Dasish) (www.dasish.eu) projects. Her/his role will be to analyse research practices and translate and implement these in a Virtual Research Environment and research registries.
As a research developer, the successful candidate will be flexible in the choice of languages and technologies, and maintain a keen willingness to learn new skills. Aside from a general emphasis on open source development methodologies, she/he will have broad freedom to choose a development environment that suits her/him best. Experience with collaborative development around open-source code-hosting repositories (such as Github, Bitbucket or Google Code) would be a advantage.
The closing date for receipt of applications is 28th December 2012.
