About the Opportunity:

The Northeastern University Library seeks an enthusiastic and forward-thinking individual to guide an expanding range of creative and design services that support faculty and students across Northeastern’s global network. Reporting to the Associate Dean for Digital Infrastructure, the Head of Creative and Design Services ($80,315 - $124,485) is responsible for the planning and management of creative support services in alignment with the library’s strategic objectives. The Head will work across Library departments and with university-wide clients to assess complex project requirements and provide quality solutions.

Specific Responsibilities:

This position will lead the units that comprise the library’s creative and design service offerings, including 3D Printing, Audio Recording, and Video Recording, and will investigate emerging services and develop/propose new service models as appropriate. The Head of Creative and Design Services works in concert with library colleagues to develop a unified library-based curriculum supporting creativity and design activities broadly, and will work with faculty, students, and staff to support academic programs through workshops, tutorials, and events across the creativity and design landscape. The Head of Creative and Design services supervises and guides staff (including full-time, faculty overload, and coop) in the Library’s audio, video, and 3D printing studios.

We invite people with various skills and levels of expertise to apply to this position. Candidates who meet some, but not all, of the qualifications listed below are also encouraged to apply. We also seek colleagues who are committed to building an inclusive and diverse working environment and who have been and remain underrepresented or marginalized in the field of librarianship – including but not limited to people of color, LGBTQ+ people, individuals with disabilities and applicants from lower-income and first-generation library or academic backgrounds.
