    OTA Resource Development Officer

    The Humanities Computing Unit, based at Oxford University Computing
    Services, brings together a number of local, national and international
    facilities providing support for Humanities Computing at Oxford. As part of
    the HCU, The Oxford Text Archive (http://ota.ahds.ac.uk/), is one of the
    world's oldest and best-known electronic text centres, and since 1996 the
    OTA has been working as the electronic text Service Provider for the UK's
    national Arts and Humanities Data Service.

    The OTA is now seeking to recruit a computer-literate graduate, with a
    background in the humanities. Candidates should enjoy working with
    bibliographic reference sources, as the first task to be undertaken will
    involve performing quality assurance checks on the metadata relating to the
    OTA's holdings. There will be opportunities to learn about the creation,
    distribution, and delivery of digital resources, and to participate fully in
    the work of the OTA. This post will provide an excellent start to a career
    in humanities computing, information management, or electronic publishing.
    Applications from persons writing-up or having recently completed a PhD
    thesis are particularly welcome.

    More information about the posts is available from the HCU web site at
