UPDATE: This position is no longer available.
The Johns Hopkins University Data Management Services (JHU DMS) group is hiring a Manager to lead the team with a focus on operational and supervisory aspects.
The JHU DMS provides both pre-proposal consultation services especially related to NSF’s data management plan requirement and post-award data curation through the JHU Data Archive. The JHU DMS applies lessons learned from and technology developed by Data Conservancy. This unique and innovative arrangement has resulted in an operational data service group working closely with a dedicated research and development unit to iteratively develop human and technology infrastructure for data management. Johns Hopkins University provides financial support for the JHU DMS team which includes data management consultants, a software developer and a system administrator (to be hired).
The JHU DMS has already established itself as an important component of the overall research framework within JHU through ongoing engagements with faculty, graduate students, the grants office, the Vice Provost for Research and Research and Finance Deans of Schools within the University. The Manager will work with a group of exceptional colleagues and build upon the important foundation that has been established at this early stage. In addition to the direct results of developing data management plans and securing agreements to deposit data into the JHU Data Archive, the JHU DMS is steadily influencing and changing the culture of data stewardship and sharing within and beyond JHU and informing the ongoing development of Data Conservancy technology.
