The Humanities Division

The Humanities Division is one of four academic divisions in the University of Oxford, bringing together the following faculties: Classics; English; History; Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics; Medieval and Modern Languages; Music; Oriental Studies; Philosophy; Theology and Religion; the Ruskin School of Art. The Division has over 500 members of academic staff, approximately 4,100 undergraduates (more than a third of the total undergraduate population of the University), 1,000 postgraduate research students and 720 students on postgraduate taught courses.

The Division offers world-class teaching and research, backed by the superb resources of the University’s libraries and museums, including the famous Bodleian Libraries, with their 11 million volumes and priceless early book and manuscript collections, and the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology. Such historic resources are linked to cutting-edge agendas in research and teaching, with an increasing emphasis on interdisciplinary study. Our faculties are among the largest in the world, enabling Oxford to offer an education in Arts and Humanities unparalleled in its range of subjects, from music and fine art to ancient and modern languages. For more information please visit: www.humanities.ox.ac.uk

The Inter-Faculty IT Team

The Humanities Inter-Faculty IT team was established in September 2015, initially to support four of the Division’s ten faculties. Two further faculties have since joined this arrangement, and the team currently supports English; History; Music; Oriental Studies; Philosophy; and Theology and Religion.

The team comprises 7 people at present, including the Head of the team, who reports to the Head of Business Relationship Management in the University’s central IT Services.

The team is responsible for providing the IT infrastructure and support needed by the faculties and their staff in relation to teaching, research and administration. The University has a range of enterprise systems to support areas such as email, student admissions, records for on-course students, staff recruitment, finance and personnel. These systems are supported by central teams, with the Humanities team focusing on faculty-specific requirements, including first-line support, troubleshooting, ordering and setting up equipment and software, setting up and managing infrastructure such as networks and servers, identifying and managing security issues e.g. via firewalls and regular patching.

The six faculties are based in several different buildings around central Oxford, and the postholder will be expected to support users in these locations. The postholder will also spend some of their time in the IT office in the Radcliffe Humanities building, where the Head of the team (and the Philosophy Faculty) are based.
