Hello all

Details below of a vacancy in Open Data Research at the World Wide Web
Foundation. This is the role I've had the great pleasure of working in over
the last two years - but as my 2015 plans contain a rather large chunk of
dissertation writing to be done, it's time to handover to someone new to
take these projects forward...

Perhaps that could be you?
