The Engineering and Science Liaison will connect researchers with the services and
resources of the MIT Libraries in support of emerging research methods, open and
equitable scholarship, and knowledge creation and dissemination.
The position will support research and teaching in engineering and science
disciplines. The focus of this position is the Parsons Lab for Environmental Science and
Engineering in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, and the Institute
for Data, Systems, and Society. This position will have exciting opportunities to support
computing and data-intensive research at the College of Computing, and in other MIT
initiatives such as The Quest. Individually and in teams, the liaison will deliver valued
services across a highly interdisciplinary campus community.
MIT libraries actively support researchers who collaborate globally, use data-intensive
methods to create new knowledge, and advance paradigm shifts in research toward
open access and open science. Helping to forge the future of library services in
advancing the MIT Libraries mission is a core responsibility of library liaisons.
Job responsibilities
In support of open and computational research, teaching and learning, the liaison will:
• Support finding, using and disseminating information by students, faculty and

sources, assisting with literature reviews, and assisting researchers with
managing and documenting their research outputs.
• Teach in the library program on information citizenship, in which students and
researchers critically evaluate current practice in the information ecosystem and
develop ways to promote openness and equity.
• Partner with faculty, students and researchers to evaluate tools, platforms, and
infrastructure that support research. Design and lead projects to gather and
analyze data about emerging research and teaching practices, such as machine
learning, in order to pilot or deploy new services and partnerships in support of
open research.
• Develop systematic and ongoing learning initiatives around emerging topics in
data-intensive and computational research for library colleagues and the MIT
community.
