Do you want to elevate the transparency, reproducibility, and replicability of academic research output? Are you passionate about improving health outcomes by identifying the best available evidence, and guiding others to find and evaluate that evidence? Then consider joining our team!

The Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library (EHSL) at the University of Utah invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty librarian at the assistant or associate level. This position will impact health outcomes in two ways – creating quality evidence syntheses and educating faculty, students, and staff in navigating the information landscape.

In partnership with researchers and librarian colleagues across campus, the Research & Education Librarian works with students and faculty to develop workable research questions and protocols, create and document expert literature searches, validate and peer review information retrieval strategies, advise on review standards and methods, support citation management, and co-author manuscripts based on completed reviews. They may also collaborate on practice guidelines, scoping reviews, narrative reviews, rapid reviews, clinical evidence summaries, and knowledge synthesis projects that directly inform clinical practice or support new and ongoing funded research. When not working on these projects, they will be planning and teaching classes in curricular and extra-curricular sessions. They will use strategic and innovative instructional design techniques to ensure high-quality, learner-centered instruction that will help learners develop their existing skills to find, evaluate, and use information effectively. They will partner with colleagues in each of these areas, sharing ideas and constantly improving their own and the team’s work.

The Research & Education Librarian reports directly to the Associate Director for Education and Research, and actively partners with other librarians and staff that make up the Clinical, Research, and Education Team. Successful candidates will bring to the position a mindset of continuous quality improvement, evaluation, collaboration, and creative problem solving. This position will require an ability to adapt positively to changes in the work environment, and a desire to build strong relationships with educators, researchers, students, and health practitioners.
