The MIT Libraries seek a committed and knowledgeable professional with

The program head will be involved and often lead library contributions to
university-wide initiatives to develop and design policies, services, and

The successful candidate will be able to effectively marshal available
resources to deliver high-quality services while cultivating new

the vision for data services and thrive on working in a fast-paced
environment. Professionals who enthusiastically embrace the empathy,

public service work, research, and program development are encouraged to
apply.

   - A collaborative approach to problem solving and working across
   organizational boundaries in service of user needs.
   - Highly developed communication skills, both oral and written.
   - Demonstrated ability to be flexible and tolerate ambiguity in a
   rapidly evolving environment.
   - Demonstrated leadership potential.
