Occasional evening and weekend hours may be required.

● demonstrated understanding of relevant information sources in chemistry, physics, astronomy, and science and technology studies;
● demonstrated understanding of disciplinary research cultures including scholarly communication, publishing trends and corresponding needs of faculty and researchers;
● understanding of the changing role of academic libraries in higher education and an ability to envision innovative and creative methods of integrating and employing digital technologies;
● experience with advancing scholarly communications initiatives or new programmatic areas and engaging stakeholders in these developments;
● leadership capacity to develop research data management initiatives across the research lifecycle, including creating, processing, analysis, preservation, access, and reuse of research data;
● aptitude for creating metadata and working with digital repositories;
● promise of record of research, publication and professional development;
● strong public service philosophy;
● evidence of professional initiative;
● demonstrated project management skills and ability to balance work priorities;
● excellent oral, written, and interpersonal communications skills;
● demonstrated ability to be flexible, creative, and work effectively in a fluid institutional environment; and
● ability to work collegially and effectively with a diverse population of colleagues, faculty, staff, and students.
