The Archaeology Data Service (ADS) provides digital data archiving services for UK archaeology. It is based in the University of York but works closely with external partners, both in Higher Education and in the public and commercial archaeological sectors. All archived data is available Open Access and ADS funding is equally split between data deposit charges and research and consultancy, including a number of international projects. The ADS also manages the highly regarded Open Access journal, Internet Archaeology. Currently around a dozen staff are employed. Following an internal review of ADS business processes and subsequent restructuring, we have decided to create a new role of Deputy Director to provide operational management for the ADS and deputise for the Director. The advertised role is a unique opportunity to join a small but dedicated team and to help shape the future direction of the ADS.
The Deputy Director will hold responsibility for all day-to-day operational issues of the ADS and Internet Archaeology, deputising for the Director, with whom they will have a shared responsibility for shaping their strategic development. The primary responsibilities will include:
