> The EOSC Association seeks a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) to provide technical leadership and help guide implementation. The role will serve as the primary driver and catalyst for delivery of the technical ambitions of the EOSC Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda <https://eosc.eu/sites/default/files/EOSC-SRIA-V1.0_15Feb2021.pdf> (SRIA).
> The process to create the EOSC was initiated by the European Commission in 2015. It aims to develop a trusted, virtual, federated environment that cuts across borders and scientific disciplines to store, share, process and re-use research digital objects (like publications, data, and software) following FAIR principles. As such the CTO is required to liaise with multiple EOSC projects, infrastructures and services who are implementing the EOSC vision and building the ‘system of systems’ approach.
> Delivery on the technical ambitions of EOSC shall thus be achieved via co-ordination and collaboration via working and advisory groups, task forces, partnerships and other stakeholder fora, as well as other European and International projects in the scope of EOSC. It should be noted that a key feature of the EOSC solution design philosophy is to leverage existing technical solutions from across the community where applicable and appropriate.
> Seven technical challenges are identified within the SRIA and the CTO will drive and co-ordinate the co-design, build/procure and delivery of technical solutions and policies across each of these technical streams:
> Identifiers
> Metadata and ontologies
> FAIR metrics and certification
> Authentication and authorisation infrastructure (AAI)
> User environments
> Resource provider environments
> EOSC Interoperability Framework
> The role requires a multi-cultural, politically savvy individual, with deep technical awareness across the breadth of the EOSC layers. The candidate should also evidence diplomatic abilities and an understanding of the diverse environment the EOSC Association operates in as well as a being able to convey a compelling vision and strategy. Ideally, the candidate should also have an international reputation with experience in EC funding and/or public procurement environments and be familiar with the relevant commercial ICT sectors.
> The CTO will be based in Brussels and shall report to the Secretary General of the EOSC Association. Furthermore, candidates should be willing to travel within Europe and beyond, available to work beyond office hours when needed, and able to work flexibly when there are conflicting demands.
> Applications are being handled by Mavence <https://mavence.com/jobs/chief-technology-officer/> and are open until 1st September.
