This exciting new opportunity supports Western Michigan Universityís commitment to be a learner centered, discovery driven, and globally engaged institution by supporting campus efforts in three key areas: cultivating and participating in campus research collaborations, consulting with researchers, and delivering educational programming.

The Data Librarian will lead new library efforts to support the emerging data needs for a wide range of stakeholders, such as campus researchers, students, and the Office of the Vice President for Research.

This innovative new area is responsible for the curation, preservation, and promotion of specialized collections, planning and executing digital projects, and providing research and educational services to support of specific program areas. The position will participate in library-wide activities and committees and may also supervise staff.

In support of the Librariesí commitment to professional development, the Librarian will enjoy many opportunities to develop a professional record. Travel funding will be provided, with support for presenting at conferences, publishing in professional publications, and developing leadership experience.

A masterís degree from a graduate program accredited by the American Library Association (ALA) or an international equivalent as identified by ALA is required. Candidates with advanced graduate coursework or professional experience are encouraged to apply.
