Liaison Librarian -- J. Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah

Post date: November 30, 2022

Come work in a student-centered, awe-inspiring library with a team that excels in supporting the teaching and research mission of the University of Utah. The J. Willard Marriott Library seeks to recruit a cohort of up to 3 tenure-track Liaison Librarians who will enrich and strengthen our organization. We seek qualified applicants with broad knowledge in one or more of the following areas: science and engineering, business and entrepreneurship, and history/area studies. The Liaison Librarians will develop, implement, and assess learning experiences concerning library research tools, methods, and strategies. They will also build connections with academic programs to increase engagement with library resources and services, as well as manage library collections and services to meet research and curricula needs. Working closely as a cohort and in conjunction with faculty and staff in the library and across campus, the librarians will help set the direction for teaching, engagement, and outreach, focused on facilitating equitable access.

Relocation to the Salt Lake City, Utah area is required and will be financially supported by house hunting and moving allowances. This position is currently designed as a hybrid of on-campus and remote work. Specific telecommuting arrangements will be based on the needs of the position and authorized at the discretion of the department head.

We seek qualified applicants who bring perspectives and experiences that will enrich and strengthen our organization and enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts on our campus. We invite applications from candidates who may not have followed a traditional educational or professional path.
