We are excited to announce that PKP is looking for an Operations Director to oversee the long-term success, sustainability and vision of PKP. A somewhat new role, the position will report to the Executive Director of Research Operations of the Office of the Vice President, Research and International (VPRI) as part of PKP’s current transition into a University Core Facility at Simon Fraser University. It replaces the existing role of Managing Director, and will work closely with PKP’s Scientific Directors and Associate Directors. This full-time continuing position will direct and manage the operations, finance, and personnel of this research and development initiative in scholarly communication, and will work hand-in-hand with PKP’s Scientific Directors and the senior PKP leadership and operations teams to ensure that our mandate to support Open Access to scholarly research continues to succeed.
The successful candidate will be an experienced, self-directed, action-oriented individual who enjoys working with co-workers and community members from around the world, and who has experience leading unique interdisciplinary research and/or infrastructure projects.
PKP is committed to creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive working environment. We believe an open and diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been underrepresented or discouraged. We seek to contribute to efforts and goals to develop and support the decolonization of scholarly publishing, to collaborate in postcolonial publishing initiatives, and to provide the means for a diversity of academic inquiry and voices to readily engage in scholarly publishing.
