Geospatial Information Systems Librarian/Specialist - Skillman Library

Lafayette College seeks a GIS librarian/specialist to take a lead role in advancing geospatial and data-driven scholarship across the disciplines (arts, sciences, and engineering).  The position will support faculty and students by demonstrating the opportunities for geospatial thinking, developing GIS infrastructure to enable new research, and promoting campus-wide expertise in the analysis and visualization of data.  The use of geographically referenced information in humanities scholarship will be a particular focus of this new position.

We seek a person who is passionate about data (geospatial and otherwise), visualization, and the use of web technology to convey complex ideas in a clear and creative manner.  This person will be technically savvy, will enjoy learning, using, and teaching new tools and technologies, and will feel comfortable growing and shaping our capabilities in this evolving area.  The successful candidate will join a growing team of Lafayette librarians committed to developing and supporting digital scholarship services for faculty and students and contributing to a national community of practice.

Qualifications:  Ability to work collegially and communicate effectively; strong teaching skills.  We expect that most applicants will have relevant experience with GIS or data visualization applications as well as an advanced degree.  Those who lack such experience should carefully explain how their background has prepared them for work in this area.

Compensation:  Salary commensurate with qualification and experience; excellent benefits, including college tuition support for children.  The library encourages and supports ongoing professional development.

For consideration, please submit a resume, cover letter addressing job qualifications, and three professional references to:  Neil McElroy, Dean of Libraries, Lafayette College, Easton, PA  18042 or via email to:castells@lafayette.edu.
