The post holder will provide a comprehensive service to the research and postgraduate community, making the full range of research outputs across the University available through the institutional research repository (ePrints) and research management system (PURE).

The post holder will resolve enquiries from researchers and external users of the repository globally. The post holder will be required to manage the end of day process independently, which will require attention to detail, and confidence in routines.
