Boston College Libraries are seeking a Data Services Librarian to join our Digital Scholarship Group (DSG). As a member of the DSG, the Data Services Librarian collaborates on designing and driving initiatives, providing current services, and is a valued voice in DSG strategic planning. This position is highly collaborative within the DSG, across the Libraries, and across campus and will be a major contributor to department outreach efforts and relationship building.

A large component of this position will involve working closely with a fellow Data Services Specialist and the DSG head on endeavors to grow existing data services and find new ways for the BC community to engage with data critically. While this position works across disciplines, the disciplinary emphasis is STEM and/or Health Sciences so that the Libraries can better meet the growing needs of Boston College’s programs and the interdisciplinary work being conducted in The Schiller Institute for Integrated Science and Society.

The Data Services Librarian is primarily responsible for DSG collaborations and services related to data gathering, manipulation, management, curation, documentation, and data skills training. Such activities include consulting on faculty and student data-driven projects; providing data skills training on data manipulation and management methods, best practices, and tools to faculty and staff; providing data skills instruction for undergraduate and graduate courses, and driving library-based curricula development (i.e., library instruction and modules) and resource creation/collection for data-centric and data science programs.
