This is a 12-month, full-time, non-tenure-track faculty position to begin August 1, 2022 at an annual salary of $57,000. The College seeks an enthusiastic and creative librarian to teach course-integrated information literacy classes in first-year seminars and in STEM disciplines (training in supporting STEM disciplines will be provided).

The successful candidate must produce the necessary documentation to legally work in the U.S. upon hire. Employment will be contingent upon successful completion of a criminal background check and proof of COVID-19 vaccination, medical and religious exemptions will be considered.
Preferred qualifications: The successful candidate will demonstrate an interest in information literacy education and teaching, either through professional experience, internships, or coursework; possess the ability to work collaboratively with colleagues; and be dedicated to positively engaging with undergraduate students.
