User Experience Strategist -- University of Arizona Libraries

Post date: November 9, 2022

The User Experience Strategist provides vision and oversight for improvement of the Libraries user experience across all touch points. They champion a user-centered, design thinking culture and support it through consultation, training, and providing resources to facilitate organizational focus on improving the user experience. They contribute to both organizational and departmental strategic prioritization based on outcomes from user research and other assessment methods. They consult with Libraries departments to improve the experience of their services and products and empower individuals across the Libraries to make improvements with users in mind.

Depending on the qualifications, interests and desires of the successful candidate, and at the discretion of the hiring authority, they may be hired into a University Staff or continuing status track academic professional position (equivalent to a tenure track position). This may be at an Assistant, Associate, or Full rank, and as continuing-eligible or with continuing status. A continuing status track position provides incumbents membership in the General Faculty of the University of Arizona along with all accompanying rights and privileges granted by the University and the Arizona Board of Regents. Retention and promotion on the continuing-eligible track are earned through achievement of a record of excellence in position effectiveness, scholarship, and service. If the successful candidate is not eligible or interested to be hired into a continuing status track position, the position will be a University Staff position.

At the University of Arizona, we value our inclusive climate because we know that diversity in experiences and perspectives is vital to advancing innovation, critical thinking, solving complex problems, and creating an inclusive academic community. As an Hispanic-serving institution and a Native American/Alaska Native-serving institution, we translate these values into action by seeking individuals who have experience and expertise working with diverse students, colleagues, and constituencies. Because we seek a workforce with a wide range of perspectives and experiences, we provide equal employment opportunities to applicants and employees without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or genetic information. As an Employer of National Service, we also welcome alumni of AmeriCorps, Peace Corps, and other national service programs and others who will help us advance our Inclusive Excellence initiative aimed at creating a university that values student, staff and faculty engagement in addressing issues of diversity and inclusiveness.
