DARIAH-EU is calling for applications for two vacant VCC heads positions (VCC=Virtual Competence Centre): VCC2 - Research and Education Liaison and VCC3 - Scholarly Content Management. The main task of the VCC heads is to work closely with the DARIAH Working Groups. Together with DARIAH’s Chief Integration Officer, the VCC heads form the Joint Research Committee (JRC). The JRC organizes the scientific and technical integration of the DARIAH activities. It does so by means of monthly virtual meetings, at least once in a year f2f, and by being involved in activities of DARIAH themselves.
A detailed description and the function of the VCCs with vacant positions can be found on the DARIAH-EU website at the following links: www.dariah.eu/activities/research-and-education.html and www.dariah.eu/activities/scholarly-content-management.html. Currently, DARIAH.EU is in a process of consolidation. We expect from the two VCC heads affinity and experiences in the area they are applying for next to innovative ideas about where the whole DARIAH community should go to and how.
The position of a VCC head is done pro bono, and formalized with a Memorandum of Understanding, which details tasks and the commitment of the VCC heads, and needs to be signed by the institution the envisioned VCC head is working at the moment.
If you are interested in this position, please send an application containing a CV and a half page motivation letter to firstname.lastname@example.org not later than December 19th, 2016.
