The National Center for PTSD seeks a future-oriented, innovative leader to oversee the operation of the PTSDpubs database (https://www.ptsd.va.gov/ptsdpubs/search_ptsdpubs.asp) and serve as the Resource Center Manager. PTSDpubs is a freely available, online database of articles, reports, books, and dissertations related to the psychological effects of trauma. This cross-disciplinary, international database is a high-visibility project, searched over 40 million times last year. In 2018, PTSDpubs transitioned to a custom content management system paired with state-of-the-art semantic software with auto-tagging capabilities. The incumbent will have the unique opportunity to shape and refine the administrative and public interfaces of this system for the 21st century.
The incumbent will also manage the Resource Center, which houses a large physical collection, and supervise the Resource Center staff. As a part of the Resource Center team, the incumbent will provide comprehensive, in-depth reference services, support scholarly publishing, deliver instruction, promote Resource Center services, and market the PTSDpubs database.
The salary range is $73,375 to $95,388 per year. Currently, the posting is only open to federal employees, but a posting open to the general public will be available soon. Check the USAJOBS website for updated information.
