The Senior Data Policy Advisor will progress the mission of the Australian Research Data Commons through liaison with peak bodies, funding agencies, federal government bodies, and research organisations, whose policies can affect the availability and re-use of research data. Whilst neither a policy nor lobbyist organisation, the ARDC advocates for a coherent policy environment supportive of national research infrastructure. Equally the ARDC policy agenda seeks to both align and communicate how national infrastructure contributes to policy pillars of the research system, such as excellence, impact, integrity, innovation, and efficiency.
The Senior Data Policy Advisor works under the broad direction of the ARDC Director (Data, Services, and Policy). The Senior Data Policy Advisor will work in close tandem with the ARDC CEO and in collaboration with staff throughout the ARDC. The Advisor will coordinate the work of project officers, analysts, and contractors within the context of specific projects.
ARDC is one of the Australian Government’s National Collaborative Research Infrastructure (NCRIS) facilities. The ARDC is a transformational initiative that enables Australian research community and industry access to nationally significant, leading edge data intensive eInfrastructure, platforms, skills and collections of high-quality data. The ARDC seeks to achieve positive health, social, environmental and economic outcomes through the application of contemporary technology and information management to research.
