Application Deadline: July 1, 2023.
We are seeking a dynamic and innovative STEM Librarian with a commitment to undergraduate education and user-focused librarianship. The STEM Librarian manages the Oberlin College Libraries’ Science Library, located in the Science Center, and supports the teaching and research functions of the biology, chemistry, geology, neuroscience, and physics departments. The STEM Librarian fosters a community of practice on campus and remotely.
Reporting to the Associate Director of Libraries, this is a full-time twelve-month position within the Oberlin College Libraries. The ideal candidate will be well-versed in emerging areas of information science, scholarly communications, open access, open educational resources, research methodologies, software tools, and data services in the STEM disciplines.
Diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility are integral to all functions of Oberlin College Libraries. Oberlin is dedicated to building a culturally diverse and pluralistic staff committed to working in an environment in which “great minds do not think alike.” We encourage underrepresented groups, including people of color, individuals with disabilities, and LGBTIA+ individuals to apply.
The position operates in coordination with others in the Reference and Instruction Group and the Associate Director for Public Services to ensure consistent access services and outstanding user experience across Oberlin libraries. The position also contributes to planning, policy development, resource management, and decision-making within LRE and, as a member of the Libraries’ leadership team, appropriately to the college library system as a whole.
