My attention has been drawn to this candidate search which I think may be of
interest to a number of you on these lists or to your contacts. The position is
being filled through a continuous review process - applications are dealt with
as they arrive.

The following extracts from the call give an idea of the role and qualities
sought in candidates. Applicants can undertake the role from any location.

"Invest in Open Infrastructure (IOI) is a coalition of organizations working to
organize and deliver funding for open scholarly infrastructure at scale from the
most obvious beneficiaries: the global institutions and agencies that form the
bulk of academic support and funding today. This role will be responsible for
coordinating the day-to-day activities of IOI, working with the Steering
Committee to define and execute a plan to unlock substantial and durable funding
for open scholarly infrastructure. This involves managing the program work,
staff, and fundraising as needed for programmatic activities, developing and
engaging with the IOI Steering Committee and the partner organizations.

We are looking for someone with an entrepreneurial spirit to work with the IOI
Steering Committee to develop and launch new initiatives aimed at expanding
support for open scholarly infrastructure. This role will engage in everything
from strategic planning and communications, cross-org collaboration, day-to-day
tasks, hiring processes, fundraising, and overall program design and management."
