Job opportunity: Open climate data manager: Creative Commons organization

Cross‑posting on request from the Creative Commons chief operating officer.

The Creative Commons organization is looking for an open data manager to develop a new climate data initiative on a 12 months contract.

Applications close 31 January 2023.

CC is looking for an enthusiastic, well-organized and hardworking Open Climate Data Manager to facilitate the creation of a community-supported, long-term solution for the better sharing of large, distributed open climate datasets. These datasets, often in various technical formats with confusing legal terms of use, are largely inaccessible to climate researchers and policymakers. This project will focus on changing this, opening up large climate change datasets and proposing a set of best practices for how we share them.

To add my thoughts: this initiative sits very well alongside efforts within this community to build a coherent and comprehensive databank covering energy systems.
