The products are based on archival text, video and image collections. \\r \\rAmbiguity? Check! Problem solving? Check! Unadulterated fun and great comradery? Double check!! In this position, there’s no such thing as an average day. One moment, you’re buried deep in the technical data feverishly pouring over a complex spreadsheet, the next you’re liaising with both internal and external contacts to initiate negotiations for new content for the platform.

Spinning plates is not only a great circus act, but a way of life and you love it!\\r4. Your interest in the performing arts helps you identify with researchers and students who would willingly part with a limb to gain access to these thrilling archives.\\r \\rThis job may not be a fit if...\\r1. You prefer to shoot from the hip, planning is a luxury that you don’t care to have. \\r2.
