UoN Libraries acts as a catalyst for the success of the University’s students, teachers and researchers. We are committed to delivering the best service for our students and academics, ensuring needs are met at every stage of their university journey. For the Library's Research Support team, this means supporting the University's ambitions for research excellence by providing guidance and expertise to support Faculties and researchers throughout the research life cycle.
The Research Support team sits within the Research & Learning Services section of the Library and delivers services covering all aspects of scholarly communications, including open access publishing and research data management. The team plays an important role in delivering training and advocacy to Faculties and researchers and providing practical, straightforward advice throughout the publication life cycle.
An opportunity has arisen within the team for a Research Library Advisor to join us on a fixed term basis.
Working as part of a small team, the role holder will contribute to a range of services that support University authors in publishing their work via the gold route to open access. Assessing applications for open access funding and answering email enquiries associated with gold open access will comprise a large part of the role. The post holder will also research, collate and analyse data about gold open access for inclusion in databases of publications, and reports to external bodies.
The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate a strong awareness of scholarly communications processes, publishing and open access policy. They will be capable of absorbing and then applying complex policy requirements established by funders of research, and capable of communicating these requirements with confidence both orally and in writing. They will be able to demonstrate a forward-thinking approach, and a commitment to effective working practices and to building effective working relationships.
