[Closed] Job Vacancy: Ishibashi Foundation Digital Project Officer at Sainsbury Institute

Applications are invited for the above post, which will be based in the Sainsbury Institute’s offices in the Cathedral Close, Norwich.

You will undertake a variety of digital tasks across a range of Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures (SISJAC) projects and initiatives contributing to the Institute’s Digital Japan strand of activity, with a particular focus on the Ishibashi Foundation Digital Futures initiative. 

The Ishibashi Foundation Digital Futures initiative comprises a series of interlinked digital projects exploring how digital technologies can enhance the study and appreciation of, and engagement with, Japanese visual cultures, including both tangible and intangible heritage. The initiative is funded by the Ishibashi Foundation. 

The initiative will create a new virtual space within which these ideas can be developed. You will work with the Institute’s staff, external specialists and students to deliver these projects by the end of September 2023.

You will need a BA or equivalent in a relevant field (relating to digital humanities), experience of creating digital content and designing web pages, and experience of using video editing software and social media platforms. The ability to speak Japanese and a knowledge of Japanese art history and cultural heritage are desirable, but not essential.

This full-time role is available from 1 October 2022 on a fixed term basis until 30 September 2023.

Closing date: 24 August 2022
