Working at the Department of Internal Affairs, you’ll have the opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of New Zealanders.

Preservation Research and Consultancy sits within the Information and Knowledge Services branch, the Department’s centre of information management, culture and heritage.

Our branch is all about collecting, storing and preserving important things that are precious to New Zealand.

The Digital Research Coordinator role will :

  • Coordinate with researchers and educators to design and conduct pilot projects involving computational investigation of the Library’s corpus of text, images and other digital content;
  • Build relationships with educators and researchers to build awareness of and increase usage of the Library’s data, and to provide the Library with ongoing feedback on its data tools and services.
  • Key skills and experience :

  • An excellent working knowledge of computational techniques and tools used by researchers
  • Excellent relationship development and management skills, with demonstrated experience
  • If you thrive on cutting edge projects, a genuine challenge, and knowing that what you do, you do for the good of New Zealand, we would very much like to hear from you.
