Bryn Mawr College Library & Information Technology Services (LITS) invites applications from early career librarians for a three-year position as Resident Librarian in the Sciences. The library residency program is intended to offer an opportunity for entry-level librarians with an interest in research and instruction in academic libraries to begin their professional careers. As members of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Diversity Alliance, we are committed to “increasing the hiring pipeline of qualified and talented individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups.” The Resident will find at Bryn Mawr a collaborative and cohesive team in the Research and Instructional Services (R&IS) department and throughout LITS, and will join a cohort of Residents/Fellows from over 50 other ACRL Diversity Alliance member institutions, as well as a local Philadelphia-area cohort.
The Resident Librarian will have particular responsibility in advancing teaching, learning, and research support, and especially information literacy in the sciences and mathematics. The Resident will profit from existing connections to these departments in R&IS and across LITS, and will build new connections with faculty and students in the sciences. The primary office will be in the Collier Science Library, with workspace in other Bryn Mawr libraries depending on individual areas of interest. In Collier, the Resident will have the opportunity to engage in management of the library, with support from LITS colleagues in Carpenter and Canaday Libraries, including supervision of a vibrant group of student workers. Bryn Mawr has a broad spectrum of undergraduate programs in the sciences and mathematics, a top-ranked 12-month postbac premed program, and graduate programs in Mathematics, Chemistry, and Physics.
