Research Data Management Specialist
CSC - Tieteen tietotekniikan keskus Oy
Data management is a set of practices to handle collected and created information. It consists of a wide range of practices, concepts, procedures, processes, policies, and of accompanying systems. It enhances the value of data by making it interoperable, easier to find and understand, less likely to be lost, and more likely to be used and reused during original use and beyond. Data management practices involve, but are not limited to, data management planning, documentation, organization, storage, dissemination, preservation, and if need be, deletion. Effective data management is an ongoing process which is structured and aligned with the use context and life cycle stages.
CSC participates in several European research data management infrastructure projects and we are looking for a Research Data Management Specialist with experience in practical research data management and with insights in semantic interoperability. Experience with digital humanities and/or research in environmental sciences will be helpful.
The work requires knowledge and understanding of the research process, different research data and metadata formats, the FAIR data principles and project management. We value experience in research data management and excellent communication skills. Fluent English is necessary.
We are looking for a person to join an existing team of data management professionals. Interest to learn new technologies is considered an advantage. We offer you the opportunity to work in an agile and relaxed environment. CSC's unique work culture is more academic than corporate, with a flatter organizational hierarchy and minimal bureaucracy. Our focus is on creating value rather than generating profit. At CSC, you’ll be doing work that benefits both science and society. We provide an environment that supports innovation, challenge your current expertise and facilitate your personal career.
