Dear Colleagues,

We have an exciting position working on image interoperability, cultural heritage data and the FAIR principles. Deadline is 3 August. Happy to answer any questions:

Applications are invited for the position of Project Manager, WorldFAIR at the Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI), located at the Royal Irish Academy.

This is a two-year specific purpose contract to deliver DRI’s responsibilities in the WorldFAIR project, which is coordinated by the Committee on Data of the International Science Council (CODATA) and the Research Data Alliance (RDA).

The WorldFAIR Project Manager responsibilities are:

  • Plan, deliver, assess and report on DRI’s contributions to the WorldFAIR project, liaising and collaborating with other partners on project organisation, dissemination and communication
  • Map how various cultural heritage communities – Europeana, International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) and Wikimedia – share digital objects (e.g. metadata standards, vocabularies/ontologies, identifiers and machine readability)
  • Propose a harmonised approach to digital object management that aligns with FAIR principles
  • Test and refine recommendations at the DRI; seek out additional repository/cultural heritage partners to test implementations
  • Document findings and recommendations in line with WorldFAIR project deliverables and milestones
  • Evaluate the DRI’s cultural heritage collections for FAIRness using, for example, the RDA FAIR data maturity model and F-UJI tool, and provide feedback to the RDA Maintenance Group on the application of the model
  • Engage with relevant RDA and CODATA working/interest groups to track current developments in cultural heritage best practice, potentially developing an RDA Community of Practice for cultural heritage data
  • Actively contribute to DRI grant and funding proposals, task forces and other DRI activities as assigned

More information about this job opportunity can be found in the Vacancies section of the Royal Irish Academy website:

I would be grateful if you could share details of this job opportunity with your network.

The closing date for applications is 3 August 2022.

Best, Natalie
