We are delighted to announce that we are currently looking for two new colleagues to come and work with the Centre for Data, Culture & Society (CDCS).  One post will be based within the Edinburgh Futures Institute (EFI) but will work closely with us to develop research skills training across the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (CAHSS). The other post sits in the Digital Innovation Team (DIT) within CAHSS and will work with us to assist researchers as they develop and upscale their projects. If you're torn between them, why not apply for both!

The EFI Digital Skills Training Manager will be based within the EFI Research Team and will eventually work within the Institute in the Old Royal Infirmary, currently being redeveloped to create a world-class teaching and research space, with a focus on data driven innovation.  Part of a team tasked with developing and implementing the operating model and infrastructure for EFI, they will develop training programmes that build on what the Centre has been doing and realise the EFI ambition and vision for research and education.  Working closely alongside our team, the post holder will be responsible for assessing needs, planning, and the design and co-ordination of a comprehensive and ambitious digital research methods training programme for academic researchers in CAHSS.  This is a full-time Grade 8 role with a salary band of £41,526 - £49,553.

The CAHSS Research Technologist will be based within the Digital Innovation Team, which provides tailored digital solutions for colleagues across CAHSS. As a member of the DIT, the Research Technologist will focus on supporting development of cutting-edge and experimental digital solutions in support of research projects across the College and its 12 Schools. They will document technical proposals and data management plans, project manage the development phases, and prototype innovative solutions using their extensive knowledge of the latest digital technologies. Providing high-level support for academic staff working within digital scholarship disciplines is integral to the role, as is working closely with CDCS to ensure that researchers are well-supported as they work with digital methods and data. This sits within the wider context of data upskilling across the University of Edinburgh and the post-holder will have the chance to work with researchers in the newly formed Edinburgh Futures Institute.  This is a full-time, open-ended Grade 6 role with a salary band of £28,331 - £32,816.

We're excited to be growing the team and driving forward our plans: there are lots of opportunities on the horizon and, with these new roles in post, we plan to make the most of them!
