Abstract

We have observed the emerging needs of the new information professions in science and engineering disciplines, called "eScience Professionals." The purpose of this research is to analyze the job advertisements (ads) of eScience professionals as accessible indicators of the work duties and the worker characteristics required for eScience professional positions by employers. Two hundred job ads were gathered between November 2009 and April 2010 (for 6 months), and then content analysis of job ads including the work environments, the works performed, and the worker competencies required was conducted. This job ads analysis shows the emerging needs of eScience professionals in the job market, and it presents eScience professionals' major work duties and their Knowledge, Skills, Ability, and Others (KSAOs) required.
