EDINA – Metadata Officer (Fixed Term)

£26,274 to £30,434

EDINA manages the technical infrastructure for the UK Access Management Federation for Education and Research. The federation provides a single sign-on solution to access online resources for education and research. It has over 900 members and more than 1600 entities so it is one of the largest SAML federations. The UK federation has recently joined eduGAIN (a service to enable single sign-on within Europe and beyond), which has led to an increase in the amount and complexity of metadata we manage.

You will support organisations to register SAML entities in the UK federation, and will maintain those registrations in light of developments such as eduGAIN, the introduction of new cryptographic elements, and the use of entity categories.

You will have a degree in computing, library or information science, or relevant working experience, or both.

This full time post is available on a fixed term basis for 2 years.

Closing date: 19th September 2014
