The Health Sciences Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is seeking a collaborative, proactive, enthusiastic, and service-oriented candidate for the position of Pharmacy Librarian. This Librarian will be the primary provider of library support for the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy. The School was rated as the number one Pharmacy program in the latest rankings of the nation’s Doctor of Pharmacy programs by U.S. News &amp; World Report (https://www.usnews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-health-schools/pharmacy-rankings).  The successful candidate will also provide information and education services using a variety of methods and technologies, participate in systematic review services, and contribute to other services and new initiatives with librarians and staff from across the libraries.
