Job Posting: 2 Science Librarian Positions (University of Florida)

POSITION VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT

 Science Librarian (2 positions)

Assistant or Associate University Librarian 

University of Florida

George A Smathers Libraries

 The George A. Smathers Libraries at the University of Florida invite applications for two Science Librarian positions.  We are seeking two innovative and collaborative individuals to join our library faculty with one serving as liaison to the biological/life sciences and the other to the physical/engineering sciences. The Science Librarian positions are year-round (12-month) tenure-track faculty who provide research assistance, instruction, outreach, and collection management. The librarians work collaboratively and maintain close professional relationships with faculty, students, and staff in assigned liaison departments/institutions/programs.

The Smathers Libraries is committed to creating a thoughtful, equitable, and inclusive culture that provides space for innovation and creativity. We support that commitment by offering a fulfilling work experience that allows for collaboration, shared perspectives, as well as professional growth and development.

The Libraries are actively seeking candidates who bring culturally rich lived experiences to work with individuals of diverse backgrounds (e.g., experiences, races, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, and perspectives) to support all students and faculty and foster excellence in a diverse and collaborative society.

The libraries encourage broad participation in reaching decisions. Therefore, these positions will contribute to discussions, provide input, and serve on various committees and teams. The librarians will also pursue professional development opportunities, including research, publication, and professional service activities to meet library-wide criteria for tenure and promotion.

The search will remain open until April 12, 2023, and applications will be reviewed as received. For a full description of the position and instructions on how to apply, please refer to the George A. Smathers Libraries faculty recruitment webpage at https://hr.uflib.ufl.edu/prospective-employees/current-openings/vacant-faculty-positions/.

The University of Florida is an equal opportunity employer and is strongly committed to the diversity of our faculty and staff. Applicants from a broad spectrum of people, including members of ethnic minorities and disabled persons, are especially encouraged to apply.
