Program/Unit Description The University of Minnesota Libraries invites
applications for two innovative, tech savvy and proactive health science
library specialists. We seek applicants who have subject expertise and
technology skills, and who possess an understanding of research processes in
the sciences to provide leadership and help shape the future of library
services.

  
Both positions will be part of the Health Sciences Libraries (HSL) division of
the University Libraries, which is led by the Director and Associate
University Librarian for the Health Sciences, and includes the Bio-Medical
Library (http://lib.umn.edu/biomed) and the Wangensteen Historical Library of
Biology and Medicine on the Minneapolis campus, and the Veterinary Medical
Library on the St. Paul campus. The positions will report to the Associate
Director for Liaison Services and will collaborate with eight other subject
librarians in HSL as well as other science librarians across the University
Libraries.

  
The specialists will serve as library liaisons to designated academic
departments and research centers affiliated with the University's Academic
Health Center (AHC, (http://www.ahc.umn.edu/), including the Medical School,
the Biomedical Discovery District, and the Clinical and Translational Science
Institute, supporting the instructional, research and outreach activities of
these units. They will forge relationships with faculty, students and
researchers and offer services that respond to the University's focus on
translational science, informatics and interdisciplinary research, including
the Minnesota Discovery, Research and InnoVation Economy (MnDRIVE) program,
for scientific research in four critical fields: food security, brain
research, robotics and advancing industry while conserving the environment.
The AHC is one of the nation's few comprehensive centers encompassing programs
in medicine, nursing, dentistry, public health, pharmacy, veterinary medicine,
and allied health, as well as a number of interdisciplinary programs that
serve the entire University. The University of Minnesota and its libraries
also have a strong record of outreach and service to the state and region.

  
Both positions will provide specialized leadership for HSL: one in data
management and curation, and the other in the development and coordination of
research support services. Areas of focus will include identifying and
supporting research needs, such as data management, research networking and
personal information management, and collaborating with faculty and library
colleagues to create innovative tools for fostering and managing disciplinary
and interdisciplinary research processes.

  
The individuals will also contribute to the knowledge base of the profession
through research, publication, and professional engagement, as they work
toward continuous appointment status.
