    Development Team

    Development Team Project Officer (Interface Design)
    Grade: RS1A
    Salary: GBP17,278 - GBP25,969 - One year post initially.

    The Humanities Computing Development Team
    (http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/hcdt/) was established in 1998 to provide IT
    project development services to support Humanities teaching and research at
    the University of Oxford. The Team is in the process of expanding to become
    the Academic Computing Development Team, a multidisciplinary unit that will
    cover all areas of academic study within the University. As part of this
    expansion we are looking to recruit an additional person to join our team.
    The post will initially be for one year.

    You will work within the team on the development of internet-based
    applications to support teaching, learning and research at the University.
    You will specialise in the design of user interfaces for our projects. To do
    this you will need to be able to communicate successfully with people of
    differing technical expertise, including your other team members who are
    involved in the "back-end" technical development of the projects, and also
    our academic collaborators. As well as having excellent design skills, you
    will ideally have a good understanding of some of the more technical aspects
    of developing internet-based applications, and you will be keen to develop
    your skills further in these areas. Other duties will include application
    development, consultation with academic collaborators and researching and
    writing short reports about specific technologies.

    We expect you to have a degree or equivalent qualification. You will
    have demonstrable practical experience in most of the following areas:
    graphic design, interface design, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and the design and
    planning of large to medium sized websites. Experience of interfacing
    databases to the web and XML/XSLT are desirable but not essential skills,
    and an interest in online learning would be beneficial. The ability to work
    as part of a small team will be required, together with the organisational
    ability necessary to undertake and prioritise a variety of duties.

    For both posts, please obtain further details and an application form
    from Mrs Nicky Tomlin, Oxford University Computing Services, 13 Banbury
    Road, Oxford OX2 6NN. (tel: 01865 273230, e-mail:
    nicky.tomlin@oucs.ox.ac.uk). Completed applications must be received by 12
    noon on 27th September 2001

    Informal enquiries should be directed to the Development Team Project
