The Data Curator Librarian will join an expanding data support team that is implementing policies, workflows, and platforms to ensure University of Rochester researchers are able to meet data sharing requirements and expectations from publishers, funders, and disciplinary best practices.


A key member of the Data services team, the data curator will work with researchers to prepare and enhance their data and metadata for deposit within UR’s data repository and/or relevant disciplinary repositories. In consultation with other library and campus colleagues, especially the data, reproducibility, and scholarly communication librarians, the curator will develop and revise minimum data and metadata standards for data deposits from all disciplines. They will collaborate on creating data workflows and regularly perform assessment on current practices to identify areas for iterative improvement.
