Data Services Library Resident
University of Chicago
Chicago

The University of Chicago Library is seeking applications for a two-year post-
graduate residency in Data Services with the foundational knowledge and
leadership skills to develop data services at the University Library.
Depending on the candidate's background, the position will be situated in the
Joseph Regenstein Library, which houses the Library's humanities and social
sciences collections, or the John Crerar Library for medicine, biological
sciences and physical sciences.

  
The Data Services Library Resident will identify and implement strategies to
meet the growing need for assistance with statistical databases; specialized
software; data visualization; data manipulation analysis; media coding tools;
qualitative data analysis, for example records of interviews and ethnographic
field notes; and quantitative data, for example sky surveys. This position is
contingent on the availability of funding.

  
**Responsibilities**  
Working closely with others in the Library and on campus, the Data Services
Library Resident will promote data resources and services; provide
instruction, training, consultation, and outreach in finding, manipulating,
analyzing, and managing data for use in research, teaching and grant
proposals; participate in selection, acquisition, management, and delivery of
data resources; collaborate with the Assessment Librarian to synthesize,
analyze, and visualize Library data); and collaborate with the Institutional
Repository Manager on relevant data management issues related to the
depository

  
This is an exciting time to be providing leadership in Data Services at the
University of Chicago. The Library is partnering with Information Technology
Services and the Research Computing Center in the development of an
institutional repository. There is an increasing focus on computational
science across disciplines: e.g., the University offers a digital humanities
sequence in the Master of Arts Program in the Humanities; the Center for Data
Science and Public Policy is a joint collaboration between the Harris School
of Public Policy and the Computation Institute; the Division of Social
Sciences offers a masters in Computational Social Science; the Graham School
offers a Masters of Sciences degree in Data Analytics; in addition, there are
computational curricula in the Physical and Biological Sciences as well as the
Computation Institute's Knowledge Lab, Urban Center for Computation and Data;
Institute for Translational Medicine, Center for Health Statistics.
Additionally there is an increased focus on data in the College.

  
The Data Services Library Resident will have opportunities to learn and
develop professional skills and knowledge within the context of a highly
integrated, collaborative, and centralized major academic research library
through committees, professional development opportunities, and other
activities.

  
**The Residency Program**  
The University of Chicago Library's 2-year residency program is open to recent
graduates of accredited library and information science programs; certain
positions may also be open to holders of other relevant advanced degrees.

  
Residents are expected to bring foundational knowledge and skills related to a
developing area of library services or technology. They should have an
understanding of and interest in academic research libraries, and the
potential to develop expertise and share their knowledge with Library staff.
The Library is looking for candidates who can meet a specific need and show
promise of future leadership. Appointments for two or more positions will be
based on the best alignment of candidates and Library priorities.

  
The University of Chicago Library is a centralized organization with a highly
collaborative, energetic staff. Each Library Resident will report to the
hiring manager for his or her position and work with staff members across the
Library as part of the primary assignment. The Residents will have
opportunities for professional development and committee appointments.

  
**Required Qualifications**  
Recent MLS or MLIS from an accredited school of library information science or
an advanced subject degree in the social sciences, sciences, or other relevant
field; experience using quantitative and/or qualitative data resources;
teaching experience in a library or academic setting; knowledge of data
management planning; basic familiarity with software for statistical and/or
qualitative analysis (e.g. ICPSR, SAS, SPSS, Stata, R, ArcGIS, Atlas.ti,
