LIBER is Europe’s largest research library network. We help our university, national, and special libraries to support world-class research.
Founded in 1971 and based in The Hague, LIBER is a partner in many European projects which address barriers on the path towards Open Science and other current topics dealt with by research libraries.
LIBER is looking for a Head of International Projects to manage the current project portfolio, maintain the current project network, and work on new project proposals.
LIBER is currently involved in a range of EU Horizon2020 and Erasmus+ projects addressing barriers to achieving Open Science. Potential job applicants will be familiar with these projects, have a relevant network, and would preferably be experienced in the issues addressed within these projects (issues specifically pertaining to Open Science, Research Infrastructures, and Scholarly Communications). The new Head of Projects will be responsible for maintaining the project network, promoting LIBER’s role in projects, acquiring new projects, and (financially) managing the work of running projects. Therefore, a proven track record in managing a diverse cluster of related projects simultaneously is a must.
The successful candidate feels at ease in an international environment, has a good eye for new project-related opportunities, has broad experience with financial project reporting and can bring coherence to complex project environments. Moreover, the tasks and duties of the Head of Projects will evolve along with the organisation.
Are you willing to play a central role in a dynamic international organisation and are you keen to develop, grow, and take on additional project-related challenges and responsibilities? If yes, then we invite you to apply.
Note: this is a full-time position with an immediate start.
As Head of International Projects, you will be responsible for:
Fixed-term contract: A 12-months contract will be offered initially with a possible extension, depending on performance and funding.
