Liaison Librarian for Health & Behavioral Sciences -- University of Texas -- Austin, TX
The University of Texas Libraries is seeking two creative and service-oriented Liaison Librarians to serve our Health and Behavioral Sciences communities, providing reference assistance, in-depth information consultations, collaboration on systematic reviews, instruction, outreach, and Open Science support to disciplines such as Human Development, Kinesiology & Health Education, Nursing, Nutrition, Pharmacy, Public Health, and Social Work. Exact disciplines will be assigned based on candidate experience and expertise. Applicants can apply for one or both positions with a single application to this recruitment.
These positions are key members of our collaborative and supportive STEM & Social Sciences liaison team, one of several teams in the Research Support & Digital Initiatives department. Liaisons in our department are particularly focused on deepening our connections with graduate students and faculty as they plan, implement, and disseminate original research. We look for new and creative ways to scale information literacy instruction, provide teaching support for faculty, and enhance student success. We foster local initiatives to advance Open Science, Open Access publishing, and Open Educational Resources. We partner with colleagues in the Scholarly Resources department to ensure access to the resources students and scholars need while maximizing our collections budget. Finally, we strive to keep evolving our services, programming, and skill sets in response to our users and the ever-changing research and teaching landscape of higher education.
The University of Texas Libraries welcomes and respects all individuals and communities by valuing and consciously maintaining awareness of diverse perspectives and experiences. We believe inclusivity is critical to fostering excellence in all of our endeavors, and we promote diversity in our collections and services, as well as in our recruiting, hiring, and retention practices.
