NYU Health Sciences Library welcomes applicants for the position of Lead, Education and Curriculum Integration, a faculty librarian appointment in the NYU Grossman School of Medicine.

This position will supervise the UME and GME librarians; and in collaboration with them, will provide education and outreach to medical students in their clinical years and in residency training.
In addition to their role directly supporting education, this position will also support library users by 1) serving as a liaison to one or more academic departments, including providing dedicated support through clinical rounding, search and citation management consultations and workshops, and other support as appropriate for the user community, and 2) contributing to the library’s support of systematic reviews through leading effective systematic review consultations, building skills in systematic searching, and serving as a collaborator on systematic reviews. Depending on an individual’s professional interest, other possibilities within the library may exist.
The Lead, Education and Curriculum Integration will also be expected to conduct and present library research based on services, education, and outreach developed in their role. Additional responsibilities include serving on library, School of Medicine, and health system committees and/or task forces as appropriate.
The successful applicant will be someone with the ability to take advantage of a highly flexible work environment, build partnerships with new user communities, and develop new services and curricula. They will also have a demonstrated track record of drive, strong interpersonal and collaboration skills, innovation, and a personal commitment to excellence and innovation. This position will lead the library’s medical education faculty at the forefront of revitalizing the way librarians engage with evidence-based medicine throughout the continuum of medical education. This group is currently involved in the medical school curriculum across all years of undergraduate medical education and has targeted outreach in graduate medical education. The successful candidate will be appointed at the Assistant or Associate Curator level, comparable to Assistant or Associate Professor.
