REMINDER: Open Access casual vacancies

The Faculty of Humanities Research Support Services Team is looking to recruit to two temporary casual posts (3 months in duration) starting in early May to support the work that Humanities is pursuing to promote the Open Access agenda. Successful applicants will work with School Research Directors to identify new publications ready to be uploaded to e-scholar and raise awareness generally about OA. Applicants should be familiar with working with complex data and university IT systems. Full training will be provided by the University Library Research Support Team.  The roles will involve full time hours for approximately 12 weeks from Monday 4 May, but we will consider applications from candidates who would be able to commit to a half time (0.5 FTE) position for the duration of the project.

These roles would suit PhD students who have already submitted their PhD thesis. 

Applicants should note that take up of this position must not have an impact on their ability to complete their PhD on time.  This role will not be considered as grounds for an extension to a postgraduate research programme. Students who are studying in the UK on a Tier 4 visa should also note that they will be considered for a half time (0.5 FTE) position only in order to comply with the UKVI Tier 4 visa condition that students should work no more than 20 hours per week.

For further information please contact Jared Ruff or Scott Taylor. Further information about Open Access is available here:

To apply please send a CV and a statement of how you meet the personal specification in the attached job description to Laura Dobson by 5 pm on Wednesday 22 April. Shortlisted candidates will be expected to attend an informal meeting regarding the posts on Friday 24 April.
