The Institute of Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology at the University of Oxford seeks to employ a Coordinator for Reproducible Research Oxford (RROx; http://ox.ukrn.org). RROx is a University-wide initiative focused on advancing the open research agenda at Oxford. The overarching goal is to promote a coordinated approach to open scholarship and research reproducibility that extends to researchers in all disciplines. The successful candidate will hold responsibility for day-to-day administration of RROx 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 postholder 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 UK Reproducibility Network (www.ukrn.org). The role would be suitable for a researcher seeking to transition to academic support work in an administrative capacity. The post is funded by the John Fell Fund. The postholder will be based at the Institute of Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology, but they will engage with all units at Oxford involved in research and/or education relating to open scholarship and research reproducibility. The position is full-time, to begin on 1 December 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. This is a 24 month 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.
