Cheers, Mia (definitely wearing my work hat) Full Time, Fixed Term to 31 March 2021 https://britishlibrary.recruitment.northgatearinso.com/birl/pages/vacancy.jsf?la test=01001918 We are seeking an outstanding candidate to provide technical leadership for the British Library Labs (BL Labs). BL Labs enables researchers, artists, entrepreneurs, educators and other innovators to work with large scale digital collections and data. The Labs has gained a strong international profile since its founding in 2013 and plays a key role in the British Library's strategy to drive forward digital research and scholarship. It has supported over 150 projects and made digital content and data openly available to inspire many more. You will work with researchers to formulate and carry out innovative and inspiring experiments often with large scale content and data ranging from ancient digitised manuscripts to today's UK web space. You will delight in learning about the challenges in a wide range of disciplines as you engage with historians, social scientists, data scientists, computational linguists, other research software engineers and more to help co-design and implement solutions. Your work will identify patterns and practices to make working with our data and collections more efficient, and design ways to make them repeatable and so that they can be integrated into everyday workflows at the Library. You will be a creative, agile, technical and analytical problem solver. You will have a strong background in computing with experience and passion for learning and applying methods including text and data mining, visualisation, natural language processing, image analysis, machine learning, data wrangling. You will get value from seeing methods and data packaged so that researchers can use them. You will know how to deliver projects on time, are an excellent communicator and a generous team worker. You will value the opportunity to share your expertise through presentations and training events throughout the UK and internationally. This is an excellent opportunity to be working for a world-leading organisation which is carrying out ground-breaking research in Digital Scholarship. As one of the world's great libraries, our duty is to preserve the nationâs intellectual memory for the future. At present we have well over 150 million items, in most known languages, with three million new items added every year. We have manuscripts, maps, newspapers, magazines, prints and drawings, music scores, and patents. We operate the world's largest document delivery service providing millions of items a year to customers all over the world. What matters to us is that we preserve the national memory and enable knowledge to be created both now and in the future. In return we offer a competitive salary and a number of excellent benefits. Our pension scheme is one of the most valuable benefits we offer, as our staff can become members of the Alpha Pension Scheme where the Library contributes 26.6% (this may be higher dependant on grade) . Another significant benefit the Library provides is the provision of a flexible working hours scheme which could allow you to work your hours flexibly over the week and to take up to 5 days flexi leave in a 3 month period. This is on top of 25 days holiday from entry and public and privilege holidays.
