Position Announcement
Research and Instruction Librarians (Two Positions)

We invite applications for two full-time, 12-month, tenure-track Research and Instruction Librarians, commencing by August 21, 2017. The regularly scheduled hours for these positions will be primarily Monday-Friday, 1:00-9:00 pm, with occasional mornings and weekends. A generous benefits package is offered, including medical, dental, and vision coverage, a retirement plan, and paid vacation, holidays, and research leave.

The Weinberg Memorial Library plays an integral role in teaching, learning, and research on campus, fostering a culture of collaboration, interdisciplinarity, innovation, creativity, and sustainability. Our work environment is forward-looking and participatory, with an emphasis on transparency and faculty/staff development.

As members of the Library faculty, the Research and Instruction Librarians contribute to the Library’s campus-wide focus on transformative teaching and learning in the Ignatian tradition. One successful candidate will serve as subject liaison to business and the other to health sciences. Both are entry-level positions, requiring a willingness to develop the knowledge needed to provide information literacy instruction to either business or health sciences courses and programs. Applicants are encouraged to apply for both positions if interested.

The successful candidate will be in possession of an American Library Association accredited Master’s degree at the time of hire, have experience working in a library or archives, experience working collaboratively with others as well as the ability to independently pursue, manage, and complete projects. Must also have the ability to deal well with the public, have the willingness to develop the knowledge required to provide information literacy instruction in business or health sciences courses, conversant in current trends in academic librarianship related to research and instruction, ability to engage in scholarship and service in order to meet qualifications for reappointment and tenure, and ability to attain a second Master’s degree in a subject field, or the completion of thirty graduate credits in a discipline that improves professional competence, as a requirement for tenure (if not already accomplished at time of hire).

Please visit our website for more information on these positions.

Applicants must apply online at: 

and include a cover letter summarizing qualifications and strengths, a curriculum vitae or résumé, and contact information for three references. Applicants are encouraged to apply for both positions if interested. The positions will remain open until filled but applications will be reviewed beginning February 20, 2017. Prof. George Aulisio, Reference Coordinator, serves as the Search Committee Chair.
