The Australian Research Council (ARC) is seeking a team of IT professionals to build an application to help assess research quality in Australia’s higher education institutions.
The seven-month contract positions have become available as part of a project titled Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA).
“The ARC provides competitive research funding to a broad range of external clients and the new application will provide a system to support research assessment, store assessment results and undertake reporting of assessment outcomes,” government documents state.
The ARC is seeking a project manager, senior business analyst, senior Java/JEE developer (potentially developers), a test coordinator and an application architect.
The overall team will consist of 12 people and will model business processes and requirements, “develop technical solutions and overlay quality assurance mechanisms” with a view to rolling out the system in the second half of 2010.
More information on the positions is available on the tenders.gov.au website.
