Metadata Analyst – Scholarly Collections

As the longest-running agriculturally-based university in the Southern Hemisphere, Lincoln University’s story begins with farming, but it certainly doesn’t end there. As New Zealand’s economy diversified, so have we. Lincoln University is here to enhance and enrich lives. To grow the knowledge of our students so they can shape a world that benefits from a greater understanding of the relationship between our land, the food produced from it and the ecosystems within it. With three academic faculties, one teaching division, several research centres, and a range of corporate service units, the University draws its students from throughout New Zealand and from over 60 countries. Lincoln University has a student roll of around 3,000 and approximately 700 staff.  

We are currently looking for a Metadata Analyst to manage our scholarly collections, providing online access and developing digital collections. One of your key tasks in this role will be to raise the visibility of the citations and research by collecting, curating and marketing the unique content of the University, connecting it to relevant and topical media. 

Ideally you will have experience working within a tertiary or information management environment, though this role may also suit a recent graduate. You will have strong computing and web-based skills, ideally with experience searching library and database systems. You will have exceptional attention to detail and excellent communication skills. 

Please apply online with your CV and cover letter.
