Job Opening: RDA Secretary General
The Research Data Alliance (RDA) is recruiting a Secretary General to begin in April of 2017. The ideal candidate is a suitably experienced leader with a demonstrated ability to engage with the members, Council and senior stakeholders of the RDA, and the ability to be a key driver of the RDA mission of rapidly building the social and technical bridges that enable sharing of data.
The appointment to this position is intended to be for two years and renewable. The employment vehicle for the Secretary General is a contract between the Research Data Alliance Foundation and an organisation willing to host the Secretary General.
The Secretary General can be based in any country and will be expected to attend many international meetings, including all RDA Plenaries. At present most of these meetings take place in North America and Europe.
The Secretary General is appointed by the RDA Council. Queries about this role can be made to John Wood (john.wood@acu.ac.uk), co-Chair of the RDA Council. Applications for this role should be sent to applications@rd-alliance.org. The application should provide a description of the candidate’s experience relevant to the role (including a response to the key selection criteria referenced in the official recruitment announcement), a CV, a note proposing the organisation that would host the candidate, and a letter of support from the proposed host and any particular requirements of the host. The closing date is February 15, 2017.

The role of the Secretary General is to support the RDA membership, and its supporting structures to achieve the goal of the Research Data Alliance - to accelerate international data-driven innovation and discovery by facilitating research data sharing and exchange.
