Description

The University of California, Berkeley Library seeks a dynamic, collaborative, and user-oriented colleague as the Data Services Librarian. This position will help develop, lead, and coordinate a robust suite of data services that serve to bolster student and faculty research through the discovery, curation, management, analysis, preservation, and visualization of data to meet curricular and research needs on campus. 

Reporting to the Associate University Librarian for Digital Initiatives and Information Technology, this position will coordinate, implement, assess, provide outreach for, and enhance the Library’s data services program. The Library’s data services program partners with UC Berkeley faculty, researchers, and students to support the discovery, acquisition, organization, management, and curation of data. It provides a range of services such as advising researchers on the creation of data management plans, helping researchers find data, data publishing, and data-related consultations and workshops. The Data Services Librarian will work across the libraries to advance and deliver data services that support faculty and students engaged in data-intensive research projects. Internally, the Data Services Librarian will collaborate in leading and providing guidance for enhancing data skills among library staff. In collaboration with other librarians, the position will also provide guidance and partnership to students through data programs and other library initiatives in the Center for Connected Learning (CCL). This position will actively collaborate with library colleagues to promote and integrate data services and data literacy into library instruction across multiple disciplines.
