Oregon State University Libraries & Press (OSUL&P) invites applications for the position of Head of Guin Library, a full-time (1.00 FTE), 12-month, tenure track faculty position. The Guin Library is located at the Hatfield Marine Science Center (HMSC) in Newport, Oregon.
We are looking for an energetic and forward-thinking leader to manage the daily operations of the Guin Library, and to develop new initiatives that will keep the library at the heart of HMSC’s dynamic and rapidly-growing campus. Strong collaborative skills are essential; HMSC currently hosts research and education programs from seven OSU colleges and six state and federal agencies. As an active member of the HMSC faculty, the successful candidate will build relationships with OSU faculty, staff and students, and also with state, federal and visiting scientists. He or she will develop policies and programs to meet the needs of this specialized campus, and as a member of OSUL&P’s leadership team will balance those needs with OSUL&P’s strategic goals and priorities. OSU plans to significantly expand the HMSC in the future, and this position will have a unique opportunity to shape the development of library services for that initiative.
This is a tenure-track position. The successful candidate will actively participate in research, contribute to the University’s teaching mission, develop a record of professional service and engage with the campus community.
The salary range for this position is $70,000-$80,000, in addition to a generous vacation and benefits package.
OSU is an AA/EOE and has a policy of being responsive to dual-career needs.
