Engineering Librarian (Senior Assistant Librarian)

The University at Buffalo Libraries seek a dynamic, innovative, and service-oriented librarian to join a team of library professionals that provide services and collections to a diverse community of students and faculty in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. UB's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences is the most comprehensive public school of engineering in New York State, with 164 faculty and a 2015-16 enrollment of 3,478 undergraduate and 1,769 graduate students. Engineering teaching and research areas include aerospace, biomedical, bioinformatics, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, engineering physics, environmental, industrial, materials, and mechanical engineering.

As a member of the Science and Engineering Information Team, the Engineering Librarian works collaboratively with other team members to develop and provide outreach, instruction, reference, and research services specifically in support of the curricular and research needs of students in engineering departments at UB.  Additionally, this individual provides integrated support for undergraduate learning and research, from first-year seminars through upper-division capstone courses, and serves as an “embedded librarian” to provide just-in-time information and training for students engaged in research and design projects.

The successful candidate engages in active and sustained outreach to engineering students to ensure their awareness of Libraries’ resources and services and provides additional support for research by offering training in citation management software. The incumbent works to develop strong collaborative relationships with engineering faculty to foster the development of new services for undergraduate students and integrate library resources, information literacy and research competencies into courses, curricula, and programs.

The Engineering Librarian helps to develop, create, manage and integrate print and electronic collections, including databases, serials, books, and other formats, as appropriate, in science and engineering.

This is a two-year, renewable faculty appointment with rank leading to tenure in an academic research-oriented environment with expectations for research, publication and participation in professional associations. The Engineering Librarian will report to the Head of the Science & Engineering Information Team in the Office of the Associate University Librarian for Research, Education & Outreach and work with other librarians and staff across the University Libraries.

The University at Buffalo:

The University at Buffalo (UB) joined the public State University of New York in 1962 and has grown to become the largest and most comprehensive university in the SUNY system. Widely regarded as SUNY’s flagship and its primary center for professional education and training, the University at Buffalo was also the first of the two public universities in the state to earn membership in the pre-eminent Association of American Universities, one of only 59 research-intensive universities in the United States to hold that distinction. Located on an international border, the University at Buffalo is truly a global community of scholars, ranking first in the nation among comprehensive public research universities in terms of percentage of enrollment that is international.

The Buffalo-Niagara region is the state’s second largest major metropolitan area, exceeded only by New York City. The region includes a diverse blend of communities, each with its own distinct personality, yet commonly characterized by a distinctly neighborly way of life, an unpretentious nature and spirited loyalty among residents.

 

The University at Buffalo is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer, and is committed to providing employment opportunities to minorities, women, veterans, disabled individuals, and other protected groups.
