With the increasing use of personal computers considerable quantities
of data and text are being assembled on diskettes (machine readable
data files). This represents an important new dimension for both
archival activity and research initiatives. The Institute seeks to
appoint a Fellow who will create an environment for processing such
data files, making them accessible and usable by developing research
tools that will be useful to a wide range of researchers. The Fellow
will also supply copies of materials on request to Aboriginal and
Islander communities and other researchers.

It is anticipated that the archive will be maintained on an Apple
Macintosh with access to other larger systems. Post-graduate
qualifications in a relevant area are required as well as knowledge of
and experience in Aboriginal studies. Applicants should also possess
an understanding of anticipated research processes in one or more
disciplines as they would relate to such an archive, as well as a good
understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research
projects currently utilising machine readable data files. The
appointee will have a knowledge of computer archiving, with skills in
programming and relevant systems management.

Salary will be within the range $32,197 to $34,954 or $34,954 to
$37,710 depending on qualifications and experience.

Further details can be obtained by contacting Dr K Palmer, Director of
Research, at the Institute of Aboriginal Studies (tel. 062 461161).

Written applications, including the names, addresses and telephone
numbers of three referees should be directed to:
