This position offers an exciting opportunity to make a substantial contribution to a critical infrastructure project aiming for high impact within and beyond the academy. Reporting to the Implementation Chair, Dr. Deb Stacey, as a member of the Executive Committee, the Technical Manager will manage and contribute to the implementation of this high-profile, multi-institutional cyberinfrastructure project in digital humanities, working closely with the Technical Committee, the Project Manager, and the support of the Technical Advisory Board to ensure project success with a geographically distributed team.

The position involves implementing and extending open source software, and provides the opportunity to design an extensive and sustainable software architecture that will have an impact on how humanities scholars from a wide range of disciplines conduct their research, as well as creating a major data resource that makes important cultural data more accessible to the general public.

Candidates should be experienced in collaborative software development, have a keen interest in problem-solving and innovation, and a gift for communicating effectively with others to advance the development process. This is a full-time research scientist position for the duration of the 3-year grant, with the possibility of extension during the operations period if funds permit.
