Research Officer


Are you interested in historical research? And are you a well-organised data-manager and a resourceful team-player? We are looking for a research officer to fulfil the important role of coordinating the historical data collection about institutions for our UNICA-research project and for the broader Institutions for Collective Action research team. Your main task is collecting and co-ordinating data for the UNICA-project, particularly by searching the archives of various types of institutions for collective action in north western Europe. You will also work with UNICA-researchers to plan the collection and management of data, and act as the data manager of the research team. You will inform, advise and support the team throughout the research data life cycle (collection, management, storage and publication) in accordance with international RDM-standards. You will initiate and actively support data management workflows, ensuring the effective organisation of research data for example in the form of Data Management Planning (DMP) for research projects. Other tasks include supporting the Institutions for Collective Action team with practical and organisational tasks.
