We want to expand our team of research data stewards, especially for the faculty of Science and Techology (Technische Natuurwetenschappen, TNW). The faculty of Science and Technology engages some 700 staff members and 2000 students in education and research on the cutting edge of chemical technology, applied physics and biomedical technology. The fields of application include sustainable energy, process technology and materials science, nanotechnology and technical medicine.
Making data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) and, RDM, the handling of research data during the entire research process, have a high priority at the University of Twente. Open Science, the new code for scientific integrity and FAIR data form the context of the Research Data Management (RDM) policy at the UT. Research data stewards support researchers with all parts of RDM such as a datamanagement plan, data collection, data storage, data cleaning, data analysis and long term archiving.
The data stewards will shape the services together with the ICT account managers of LISA and the research support staff at the faculties.Your tasks
- you actively work on raising RDM/FAIR data awareness among researchers and students;
- you support researchers and students with their RDM, on all parts;
- you assist researchers and research groups in translating the UT RDM policy into the daily practice of their work;
- you can take a user's perspective and are able to translate their needs into technology and IT infrastructure;
- you take the initiative in establishing short and long-term contacts with researchers to discuss RDM/FAIR data matters;
- you can translate questions from researchers and students into possible new services and advise the project team on this;
- you provide training in the field of RDM/FAIR data;
- you follow (inter) national developments in the RDM/FAIR data field, keep abreast of new tools and software and you consider whether and how you can use these.
