Reproducible Research Oxford [1] is a University-wide initiative focused on advancing the open research agenda at the University of Oxford. The overarching goal is to promote a coordinated approach to open scholarship and research reproducibility that extends to researchers in all disciplines. The University has recently awarded funding, through the John Fell Fund, to establish Reproducible Research Oxford as the local network of UKRN, the UK Reproducibility Network [2].

Reproducible Research Oxford is now seeking to hire a Coordinator to assist with day-to-day administration of the initiative and related activities (e.g. internal and external events, communications, engagement). This is an exciting opportunity to shape the open research agenda at one of the world’s largest research institutions. The post-holder will join an interdisciplinary team of colleagues who have been active in the area for several years in Oxford, nationally, and internationally. They will benefit from established links with internal and external partners, working within the national framework provided by UKRN. The role would be suitable for an early-career or experienced researcher seeking to transition to academic support work in an administrative capacity.

The position is full-time, to begin on 1 December 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. This is a 24 months fixed-term position, with the possibility of extension for up to a further 12 months, subject to availability of funding. Applications to work part-time, or job-sharing arrangements, will be considered.

Applicants who belong to groups that are under-represented in academia are especially encouraged to apply [3][4]. The closing date for applications is 30 September 2019 and interviews will be held on 25 October 2019.
