Deadline Approaching! Call for TEI-C Webmaster, January 1, 2017 - December 31, 2018; Applications Due 12/15/2016

Dalmau, Michelle Denise
[It may help to know that we are a fun bunch!]

The TEI Consortium seeks nominations for a TEI-C Webmaster to be appointed by the Board of Directors as a non-voting member of the Board for the period January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2018. This person will manage the TEI's website and email lists hosted on that site and will assist with archiving conference websites, email lists, and other noteworthy content developed outside of the TEI's web infrastructure, including content maintained in Google Drive and other third party systems. The TEI-C Webmaster will also be responsible for setting up electronic voting using OpaVote for the annual TEI-C Board and Council elections and the TAPAS Advisory Board elections.

The TEI-C web site is undergoing a migration in phases to WordPress, requiring usability assessment and a redesign. The TEI-C Webmaster will oversee this work, which may be conducted primarily by a contractor, paid intern, or students as part of a class project or capstone project, in close consultations with the TEI-C Board of Directors.

The time commitment will range from 2-5 hours a week, depending on the tasks at hand. It's essential that the incumbent:
• have experience or aptitude with command-line tools, mailing list administration, and similar technical skills
• be well-versed in HTML/CSS
• be detail-oriented
• be easy to reach by email

Experience with XML and XML-related technologies like XSLT is preferred.

The Board of Directors will offer support to attend the annual TEI conference for the person selected for the position, or to their employer in return for their time commitment. The Text Encoding Initiative Consortium is committed to diversity and inclusion, and ensures equal opportunity to all qualified individuals. We invite applications from all including those with diverse needs, backgrounds, and abilities.

Please indicate interest to the Chair of the TEI-C Board by 15 December 2016, stating motivations for applying for the positions and including a short CV highlighting the specific competencies. Send application materials to: Michelle Dalmau, [hidden email].
