I’m very happy to announce an opening for a Scholarly Communications Design Studio Coordinator to the group: http://lib.uconn.edu/about/employment-opportunities/professional/
A partnership between the University Libraries, the University of Connecticut Humanities Institute, and the Department of Digital Media & Design (DMD), the Scholarly Communications Design Studio is a newly formed program that brings scholars into deep and sustained conversation and fosters collaborations with professional designers, web and application developers, librarians, data management experts, developmental editors, digital archivists, and university press representatives. The Design Studio ensures that design thinking is integrated throughout the cycle of research, analysis, writing, editing, and publication. The Design Studio operationalizes the design of multimodal scholarship, develops systems that scale, and tracks, assesses and disseminates the results via open journal systems, digital repositories, and other digital scholarship platforms and media.
The Scholarly Communications Design Studio Coordinator is a new interdisciplinary position created to provide leadership and coordination for design project development and engage with faculty, graduate students, undergraduates, and the broader University community across all UConn campuses to facilitate and promote design thinking in digital scholarship. Among other things, the Scholarly Communications Design Studio Coordinator organizes and coordinates facilities management and scheduling, technology training and support, and project support services devoted to digital scholarship projects at the UConn Libraries.
Please circulate broadly and encourage any potential candidates to apply or get in touch with me directly for more information.
