The University of Manchester Library is one of only five National Research Libraries and the third largest academic library in the UK. Our vast and rich collections (both print and increasingly digital) help us to deliver a world-class library and information service for The University of Manchester. While our primary objective is to meet the learning, teaching and research needs of University members, we are also fully committed to widening access to our services to individual researchers, local schools and others in the regional community.
We are seeking to fill a research support role within the Library’s Scholarly Communications team. The team provides support for Manchester eScholar and advice on Open Access, processes APC requests and promotes the use of new tools within the publication lifecycle. You will have a good understanding of Open Access, an awareness of scholarly communication developments and experience of communicating with researchers, ideally including development and delivery of training for researchers. Experience of carrying out academic research will be an advantage in this role.
As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons. However, as black and minority ethnic (BME)/male candidates are currently under-represented at this level in this area, we would particularly welcome applications from BME/male applicants. All appointments will be made on merit.
