Brown Judaic Studies (BJS) is a scholarly book series housed in the Program in Judaic Studies at Brown University.  We are currently looking for a full-time project manager for a fixed-term (maximum one-year) position overseeing the conversion of fifty of our titles to digital, Open Access form.

While the physical digitization will be contracted out, the project manager will oversee the day-to-day operations of the project, including the solicitation of new essays to accompany the new digital versions and marketing and dissemination of the titles.  The project manager will be based in the Brown University Library.

The person holding the position is expected to take the lead in making the decisions necessary to keep the project moving.  These might include working with authors on corrections and essays and developing a marketing plan.  The position will not have independent control over any budgetary matters.
