Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) Library in Portland seeks a
creative, dynamic, and innovative Technology Director.

OHSU is the state's only comprehensive academic health center and is made
up of the Schools of Dentistry, Medicine, and Nursing; College of Pharmacy;
numerous centers and institutes; OHSU Healthcare; and related programs. The
OHSU Library, the largest health sciences library in Oregon, serves the
faculty, staff, and students of OHSU, as well as health professionals and
residents of the State of Oregon. Library staff provide services in support
of teaching, research, patient care, and outreach. An active participant in
the Orbis Cascade Alliance, the Library is implementing the consortium’s
ambitious strategic agenda to push boundaries, change the landscape, and
inspire the profession.

Digital initiatives are a major priority of the Library, which is migrating
most library systems to cloud-based solutions. The Technology Director will
represent the Library in campus and regional partnerships, manage and
support technology projects, and directly implement solutions. As the lead
of a small team that collaborates with many partners, the Technology
Director’s duties will range from liaising with stakeholders to coding new
search applications, from managing staff to integrating content with linked
data and semantic technologies. This new position reflects the Library’s
investment in developing and using technology to deliver services,
facilitate research, and improve education.

Current initiatives in which the Technology Director could play a role
include development of semantic technologies for rare disease diagnostics;
development of search tools to query local and external data stores for
translational research; digital asset management in support of research,

management tools in electronic health records for clinical education and
patient care; publication of archival public health data for use in modern
field research; and data management services to facilitate sharing and
reproducibility.

Orbis Cascade Alliance). As a member of the library leadership team, this

objectives; serves on the Library Council that includes representatives
from management, professional, and classified staff; supervises the Digital
Collections and Metadata Librarian, two Systems/Applications Analysts, the
Web Manager, and a Library Technician; and collaborates with Library,
campus, community, and regional partners on technology solutions to serve
the OHSU education, research, and clinical communities, and residents of
the State of Oregon. As a member of the Library Faculty, the Technology
