About the opportunity:  

Northeastern University Library seeks a dynamic individual to help build a program of library support services to support ongoing growth and innovation in the College of Engineering.  Reporting to the Library Program Manager for Engineering, situated within the Research & Instruction Department, the Engineering Librarian ($65,540 - $83,565) will serve as liaison to departments in the College of Engineering and other related departments and research labs throughout the university.  

As liaison, the Engineering Librarian acts as a bridge representing the library to the College of Engineering and the needs of the College of Engineering to the library. You will develop and grow relationships with students, faculty, instructors, staff, and researchers in the fast-growing College of Engineering, seeking opportunities for the Library to support experiential teaching and learning as well as interdisciplinary research focused on finding solutions to global challenges in health, sustainability, and security.  

Also, the Engineering Librarian will develop expertise in a specialized support area to strengthen the library’s knowledge portfolio and support University research initiatives. The specialized support area, selected by the Engineering Librarian with input from the Library Program Manager for Engineering, can be based on an existing area of interest or one that the Engineering Librarian develops at Northeastern. The Engineering Librarian will have the opportunity to shape how the area is supported by the library, including assessing trends and developing service points as needs emerge. Areas of specialized support often center around innovative information literacy instruction practices or emerging support for research impact. Some potential examples include exploring support for collaborative research programs, data science, and scholarly communication. 

To the point: Be a collaborative, curious, and engaging thought partner; contribute to a strong team and staff culture; build relationships with users; enhance core services; innovate and develop new research and instruction services. Help us support the amazing engineers learning and working at Northeastern!
