University of Portsmouth
Research Assistant in Metadata Standards for Digital Preservation and Emulation
School of Creative Technologies
Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries

Fixed term contract for 36 months

Salary: £20,226 - £23,449

Reference: RFCC 0018

Closing date: 19th December 2008


Applications are invited for the above post to work on a European Commission FP7-funded project which will develop an Emulation Access Platform to enable accurate rendering of both static and dynamic digital objects: text, sound, and image files; multimedia documents, websites, databases, videogames etc.


The overall aim of the project is to facilitate universal access to our cultural heritage by developing flexible tools for accessing and storing a wide range of digital objects. The project will address all aspects ranging from safeguarding the original bits from the carrier to offering online services to end-users via a highly portable emulation framework.

In addition to producing a software package, the project will deliver understanding about how to integrate emulation-based solutions with an operational electronic deposit system. Existing metadata models will be researched and guidelines will be developed for mapping digital objects to emulated manifestations.


The applicant will be working on the metadata aspect of this project and should have a good understanding of data modelling in general and in particular a specific knowledge of bibliographic and/or games data.


Applicants must possess at least a good undergraduate degree in Cultural and Heritage Informatics; Information Management / Preservation; Digital Humanities; Library and Information Science; Database Technologies; Computer Science or similar. Relevant research publications and previous research experience with digital libraries would also be advantageous.

For informal enquiries about this post, please contact the principal investigator by emailing David.Anderson-AT-port.ac.uk<mailto:David.Anderson-AT-port.ac.uk> (or by phoning 0239284 5461).

University of Portsmouth
Research Assistant in User Interfaces
School of Creative Technologies
Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries

Fixed term contract for 36 months

Salary: £20,226 - £23,449

Reference: RFCC 0017

Closing date: 19th December 2008

Applications are invited for the above post to work on a European Commission FP7-funded project which will develop an Emulation Access Platform to enable accurate rendering of both static and dynamic digital objects: text, sound, and image files; multimedia documents, websites, databases, videogames etc.

The overall aim of the project is to facilitate universal access to our cultural heritage by developing flexible tools for accessing and storing a wide range of digital objects.

In addition to producing a software package, the project will deliver understanding about how to integrate emulation-based solutions with an operational electronic deposit system. Existing metadata models will be researched and guidelines will be developed for mapping digital objects to the emulation framework.


Applicants must have experience of developing multimedia user interfaces, for local and network (Internet) use, particularly those that utilise database search functionality. The user interface will be required to host the emulation services offered by the project system, so experience of emulation is highly desirable.


The successful applicant will also be expected to manage the delivery of a transfer tool framework designed to assist institutions in using various existing media transfer tools (such as floppy/CD imaging software), and enabling the use of existing archived digital objects within the project framework. Familiarity with C++, Java, or an equivalent language is thus essential.
