You work with national and international networks to share and inform best practice. The position is based in the TU Delft Library as part of the Research Data Services team.

The Library's Research Data Services are playing a leading role in promoting high-quality Research Data Management.

TU Delft's Data Stewardship programme is coordinated by the Library and helps reach out to a wide range of researchers at the university in order to promote good data management practices over a wide range of disciplines.
