Carnegie Mellon University Libraries seeks a collaborative, people-centered, technically-skilled faculty colleague with experience in social science research methodologies to serve as our newest Social Sciences Librarian. In this role, you will build deep relationships with faculty, staff and students, principally in your liaison departments of Psychology and Social and Decision Sciences—for whom you will be a key resource when it comes to engaging with social science methodologies, accessing information, working with social science data, and publishing their scholarly outputs—and across campus.
You should have a strong academic background in a social science discipline or closely related field, an understanding of the research lifecycle within the field, and should be highly motivated to develop close collaborative teaching and research relationships with faculty, staff and students. You should also have experience using quantitative research methods and tools and be comfortable providing instruction in this area.
You will be joining an agile, enthusiastic, and interdisciplinary academic engagement team committed to providing best-in-class integrated research and learning support to the CMU campus community. As a member of that team, and under the leadership of the Associate Dean for Academic Engagement, you will also work with other library faculty to support university priorities (from core competencies to sustainability to fostering a culture of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging); help meet the wide range of information, data, and computational literacy needs on campus; and keep abreast of evolving curricula and research trends across the disciplines.
We are especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their research, teaching and/or service, and have a demonstrated record in working with international and underrepresented minority students.
