workshop delivery to a variety of audiences that
range from technical experts to novices.
Excellent communication skills are essential.
Candidates will need to demonstrate
multi-disciplinary understanding, and have the
ability to learn quickly to absorb new
approaches, methods and techniques employed
across the range of e-Science in the arts and humanities.
