Health Sciences Librarian, Clemson University, Clemson, SC

The Clemson University Libraries seek a service-focused, innovative, and collaborative librarian to support health sciences education and research at a dynamic public research university that focuses on student success by targeting four strategic priority areas: Research, Engagement, the Academic Core, and the Living Environment.  Clemson’s partnership with health care systems has created the Clemson University School of Health Research (CUSHR), a multidisciplinary unit that facilitates medical research and scholarship. In addition, Clemson’s School of Nursing received recognition by the National League for Nursing as a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education.

The Health Sciences Librarian provides research assistance, instruction, collection development, and outreach for the department of Public Health Sciences, School of Nursing, and CUSHR.  The successful candidate will collaborate with university partners and institutes to develop and support innovative programs and services.  Library faculty are members of the academic community, with responsibilities in the areas of librarianship, scholarship, and service. This is a 12-month tenure-track Faculty position and works under the direction of the Head of Information & Research Services. 

Clemson Libraries provides a unique opportunity to the right individual. As a relatively young R1 library, we are in the process of redefining ourselves, engaged in discussions with students and faculty to determine what programs and services should be created or expanded.  Currently we are focusing on expanding digital literacy efforts and developing new and innovative programs to support graduate students and faculty, all in the context of equity, diversity and inclusion.  We have completed a master plan to renovate the building to provide welcoming, technology enhanced spaces.  Lastly, we are engaged in a reorganization to better align ourselves to meet these goals, allowing us to add expertise in areas of need. We aspire to be one of the best research libraries in the country.
