Six digital preservation posts available at Oxford and Cambridge

Cambridge University Library and the Bodleian Libraries have received substantial funding from the Polonsky Foundation to appoint six Polonsky Digital Preservation Fellows for a joint two-year project. Three Fellows will be based at each institution, and will work collaboratively to address the development of systems and services to support the long-term preservation of the libraries’ digitised and born-digital cultural heritage collections. The roles of the three Fellows will be mirrored at each location, and will concentrate on the areas of Policy and Planning; Outreach and Training; and Technical. These six posts offer an exciting opportunity to help shape the digital preservation activities at two of the world’s foremost research libraries, and to share with others the knowledge and experience learned.

For more information and details of how to apply, see  http://www.lib.cam.ac.uk/job or http://www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/about-us/jobs

The closing date is 29th February 2016. Interviews will be held in London in March 2016.
