Job Board

The LPC maintains a list of jobs that incorporate library publishing roles. To be included in this list, the position must be located administratively in a library, or report directly to a library-based supervisor. The primary function(s) of the position must directly engage in the creation, dissemination, and/or curation of scholarly, creative, and/or educational works. Administrative positions that do not directly engage in these functions may be included if they include supervisory responsibility primarily for employees who are performing these functions.

The University of Michigan (U-M) Library is currently seeking a Data Curation Specialist for Science and Engineering. A Library Science degree is helpful, but not a requirement.

As such, the person in this position will provide support for both of the Library’s institutional repositories: Deep Blue Data and Deep Blue Documents.

Other service activities and functions may be negotiated depending upon the knowledge, expertise, and interests of the individual. The U-M Library encourages and supports professional growth.

Appointment is anticipated Associate Librarian or Senior Associate Librarian rank. The target salary range for this position is $64,000 to $69,000 for the Associate rank, and $69,000 to $76,000 for the Senior Associate rank.
