Vacancy Advertisement: Executive Director of CLARIN ERIC
CLARIN is looking for an inspiring person to chair the Board of Directors. The Executive Director - in close collaboration with the other board members and the national coordinators - will steer CLARIN in consolidating its position in the dynamic RI landscape.
The main challenges for which the new Executive Director needs to take the lead in the upcoming years are: ensuring the sustainability of CLARIN along all relevant dimensions, to increase the uptake of the services in the relevant communities of use (including the ones that are currently not connected), to balance the central and distributed activities, to align the agenda with those of relevant research communities (e.g. in digital humanities, computational social sciences, , AI and data science), to align with the strategic agenda of the European Open Science Cloud, to contribute to the reinforcement of the emerging SSH cluster structure (https://sshopencloud.eu/), to set up collaborative links with new partners, and to promote collaboration with non-academic partners, including heritage institutions and industry.
The Executive Director will be based at CLARIN Office in Utrecht (NL). The position requires regular presence in the Utrecht Office, while travelling frequently throughout Europe will also be part of the working pattern.
The Executive Director is appointed by the CLARIN General Assembly.
