Position and Responsibilities:
Ranked as the #4 Most Innovative University by U.S. News and World Report, Georgia State University has one of the fastest growing research profiles in the country and a proven commitment to the success of students from all backgrounds. We welcome to our team an innovative, collegial, and highly-engaged information specialist who will support research and teaching within health-related disciplines at Georgia State University. Our Health Informationist provides regular consultations, research assistance, instruction in information and data use, and has a strong commitment to student learning and success. The Health Informationist is based at the downtown Atlanta Campus Library and serves as the liaison librarian and content specialist for the School of Public Health and other areas as assigned.
We welcome a new type of embedded specialist who works with students at all levels in learning information skills needed to succeed, and who is a partner in faculty research. Identified areas of need among faculty researchers include conducting systematic literature reviews; analyzing, organizing, preparing, and managing original research data; and presenting research findings and raw data for publication and reuse. Together, we will work to develop a more thorough understanding of federal agency requirements (specifically NIH) regarding data management, as well as the broader scholarly communication and curation issues associated with e-science and open data initiatives. The position serves as a member of the library faculty (non-tenure track), holds faculty rank, and is expected to engage in service and scholarly activities as outlined in the University Librarys faculty guidelines.
