Executive Director, CLOCKSS, Location Flexible

CLOCKSS is seeking an Executive Director to lead the organization in its next phase of development, from May 2021, following the retirement of the current Executive Director, Craig Van Dyck.

CLOCKSS (Controlled LOCKSS) is a not-for-profit joint venture between the world’s leading scholarly publishers and academic libraries, whose mission is to build and operate a sustainable, geographically distributed digital preservation service with which to ensure the long-term survival of web-based scholarly publications for the benefit of the greater global research community. CLOCKSS is an international, mission-driven, partnership organization with technical support from the LOCKSS team at Stanford University.

The role of Executive Director is crucial to CLOCKSS: running the organization, reporting to the Board via its Co-Chairs, and responsible for continuing to establish the organization as a major international scholarly archive and as a valuable collaborative community of scholarly publishers and academic libraries. This is a highly visible leadership role in the scholarly community.

Candidates should apply before 25 September 2020, although applications after that date may also be considered.
