Job Vacancy: Medieval Manuscripts Specialist

Cambridge University Library is looking for a specialist in medieval manuscripts with a digital component. This, of course, has no connection at all to the DigiPal project, but I thought it would still be of interest to readers of the blog. Quoting from the online job description,

The successful candidate will lead the development of high quality reader-focussed services to support scholarship on the manuscripts, promoting them to the research community at local, national and international level. He/she with deal with all aspects of the care and administration of medieval manuscripts and will be outward-looking in developing innovative digital services alongside traditional methods to support the University in its teaching, learning and research and to make the medieval manuscripts accessible to the widest possible audience. He/she will have the necessary skills and enthusiasm to exploit the opportunities created by the Cambridge Digital Library ( and to take a leading part in planning and implementing a new online catalogue of medieval manuscripts.

The closing date is 18 March 2013, and further details are available from
