STM Hiring CIO for New Operational Arm

Seeks Experienced Candidates From a Product Management or Technology Leadership Role

A new opportunity is being offered by the STM Association as they invite candidates for a new role -- Chief Information Officer and Program Director of STM Solutions.

STM Solutions will be a new operational arm of STM, the International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers. STM Solutions aims to operate shared infrastructure services for member publishers and the broader scholarly communications community. The new entity will initially focus on two key initiatives -- GetFTR and SeamlessAccess -- as well as develop similar foundations for new service, by "prototyping, evaluating and operating new services, working closely with the STM Standards and Technology Executive Committee (STEC)."

The association has over 140 members based in over 20 countries around the world who collectively publish 66% of all journal articles and tens of thousands of monographs and reference works. Those members work together in developing standards and technology to ensure research is of high quality, trustworthy and easy to access.  Their objective is to promote the contribution that publishers make to innovation, openness and the sharing of knowledge while supporting sustainability of the research ecosystem. 

Full details of the position requirements are available on the STM web site. The deadline for submission of applications is Monday, November 30, 2020.
