With the foundation of the Göttingen eResearch Alliance, Göttingen University expands its offer for the researchers of the Goettingen Research Campus with a range of pioneering services. In doing so, Göttingen University is responding to the growing need of researchers for digital services and the recommendation of the German Rectors' Conference (Hochschulrektorenkonferenz) and the German Council of Science and Humanities (Wissenschaftsrat) to extend eResearch infrastructure. The main objective of the alliance is to support scientific work with a range of services based on technology and information science, supporting already existing research activities and enabling the adoption and development of new digital research methods.
In the foundation phase of the Göttingen eResearch Alliance, Göttingen University is filling five vacancies. Four of the five positions to be filled are coordination and implementation posts within the Alliance, the fifth is a position at the research project "Humanities Data Center" (HDC).
