Smathers Libraries seeks a Data Management Librarian to serve the University of Florida (UF), a major, comprehensive, land-grant, research university, which is among the nation’s most academically diverse public universities. The successful candidate will, as part of a dynamic and collaborative team, pioneer the development of a data management services program through new initiatives in data curation and will forge new collaborations and relationships that extend the Libraries’ capacity to support the University’s interdisciplinary research and technology initiatives – building upon a foundation of library-campus collaboration to date and work of the library-led Data Management and Curation Task Force.
