Librarians of the Future Diversity Residency Program: Interdisciplinary Librarian -- University of Colorado Boulder

Post date: May 7,  2023

The University of Colorado Libraries encourages applications for two Interdisciplinary Librarians as part of the Librarians of the Future Diversity Residency Program for three-year research faculty appointments. The purpose of this program is to introduce early career professionals, and in particular, members of historically underrepresented groups, to career opportunities in academic librarianship, which will enrich the profession by introducing new perspectives and fostering connections among librarians from diverse backgrounds. As part of a three-month onboarding process, the participants will set goals with the Program Facilitator, and will meet with stakeholders from the Libraries and learn about the different facets involved in academic librarianship. At the end of the 3-month period, the Interdisciplinary Librarians will identify two areas of interest from a pool of opportunities available within the Libraries that they would like to pursue in a collaborative project. During the remainder of years 1 and 2, the residents will work on collaborative projects with faculty mentors in two selected areas of interest within the Libraries to develop librarianship skills and consider how the practice of librarianship informs research. Some of these research outcomes could be presenting at a conference or authoring/co-authoring an article, for example. During the final year, the Interdisciplinary Librarians will propose and lead their own projects. The Interdisciplinary Librarians will gain project management and leadership experience, as well as engage in research activities related to the project.

The two Interdisciplinary Librarian Residents will be hired as full-time research faculty appointments with annual workload distribution of 40% librarianship, 40% scholarly and creative work, and 20% service. Appointments will be for three years. 

The annual salary range for this position is $67,000-$71,000.
