Job Vacancy at King's College London

Technical Project Officer (Web Application Development)
The Centre for Computing in the Humanities (CCH)
Closing date: 12/01/2009


The Centre for Computing in the Humanities (CCH) is seeking to appoint  
two creative, enthusiastic professionals to develop web-based  
applications driven from database sources. You would be working closely  
with colleagues in CCH and in humanities and social science  

CCH is an academic department in the School of Humanities. It is  
responsible for undergraduate and MA programmes and runs a PhD. As part  
of its very active research programme, the Centre is involved in a  
large number of externally funded collaborative research projects.  
These posts are intended to support the technical development of a  
number of these projects.

Experience in design and in building environments based on database  
technologies is essential. The department uses primarily Java and J2EE  
technologies to publish database materials on the web, and knowledge of  
these technologies is also critical. Web interfaces are developed with  
the use of well established JavaScript/AJAX frameworks and in  
accordance with good XHTML and CSS practices, and experience with these  
are highly desirable. Familiarity with XML and XSLT is desirable.

Proven experience in creating integrated research applications using a  
range of technologies would be a significant advantage. In addition, a  
good understanding - and preferably experience - of how research is  
conducted in the humanities and social sciences will be valuable. A  
successful candidate will need to be able to work effectively as part  
of a team, as well as independently. S/he should have good  
communication skills and possess the ability to document the work in  
clear written English.

£32,917 - £33,836

Post duration	
The appointment will be made, dependent on relevant qualifications and  
experience, within the Grade 6 scale up to spine point 32, inclusive of  
£2,323 London Allowance, per annum. Benefits include an annual season  
ticket loan scheme and a final salary superannuation scheme. This is a  
two year post.
