New York University (NYU), Shanghai, China
Reference and Research Services Librarian for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) – REOPENED
The NYU Library in Shanghai invites applications for a STEM Reference and Research Services Librarian in an innovative and forward-looking setting. As part of a collaborative team, the position plays a key role in the educational mission of NYU Shanghai by establishing strong relationships with faculty and students, and connecting them to the services, content and tools that meet their research, teaching and learning needs.
To Apply:
To ensure consideration, send resume and letter of application, including the name, address and telephone number of three references to: Enrique Yanez, Director, Human Resources, New York University Libraries, 70 Washington Square South, New York, NY 10012 or via email to jobs@library.nyu.edu. Please include where you heard about this position.  Resumes will be considered until the position is filled.
Sarah P’s comments:  This position was originally posted on 1/24/14 (see my post of 1/27).  At that time they stated they were moving to a new campus in 2014.  I suspect that there was a delay and they did not hire for this position.  NYU has posted three other positions this year.  If you are interested please read my comments on my earlier posts for more info about NYU’s overseas campuses.

Job: Faculty Technology Specialist

10/1/14 –  Faculty Technology Specialist
New York University (NYU), Shanghai, China
NYU Shanghai is seeking an enthusiastic Faculty Technology Specialist to join our Academic Technology Services unit. This unit is a collaboration between the NYU Shanghai Office of Academic Affairs and the NYU Shanghai Library, and it works closely with its counterparts at NYU New York and NYU Abu Dhabi. The Faculty Technology Specialist will be primarily responsible for providing oversight of technology services to support faculty and researchers, including student researchers, at NYU Shanghai.
NYU Shanghai is the newest degree-granting campus within the NYU Global Network University. It is the first Sino-US higher education joint venture to grant a degree that is accredited in the US as well as in China. As a research university with liberal arts and science at its core, NYU Shanghai resides in one of the world’s great cities with a vibrant intellectual community (http://shanghai.nyu.edu/).  It recruits scholars who are committed to a global vision of transformative teaching and innovative research.
The Library of NYU Shanghai will deliver and coordinate a wide range of academic services that support the teaching, learning and research of NYU Shanghai’s faculty and students.  Drawing on the resources of the libraries at NYU New York, the NYU Shanghai library provides an opportunity to create a forward-looking 21st century library program and facility to serve a culturally diverse and academically talented population.  NYU Shanghai opened in September 2013 with a class of 300 freshmen and 150 Study Abroad students. The library will be relocating to its permanent location in the new Pudong campus in 2014.
 
Sarah P’s comments:  NYU continues to expand despite criticism and some false starts (their Singapore campus has closed: see Anatomy of a Failed Campus for more info).  However no new venture is without risk and they appear to be forging ahead.  This is the third position posted this year including a Library Director posted in early July so hopefully this is a sign of stability and expansion. However make sure to ask what your relationship is to NYU New York.  In the past they have stressed that you are not part of the regular faculty – meaning you cannot transfer campuses.

Job: Reference & Research Services Librarian

9/24/14 – Reference & Research Services Librarian (New Position)
New York University (NYU), Shanghai, China
NYU Shanghai is the newest degree-granting campus within the NYU Global Network University. It is the first Sino-US higher education joint venture to grant a degree that is accredited in the US as well as in China.
The Reference and Research Services librarian serves as the primary liaison to a group of academic departments in the humanities or social sciences, with responsibilities for delivering a program of instruction, consultation, and research support services; developing responsive outreach and other information services; building collections in all formats that support research and curricular needs; and taking a leadership role on projects and initiatives as appropriate.   Collaborative work with colleagues at NYU New York, NYU Abu Dhabi, and across NYU’s global network is an important job expectation.  Librarians at NYU participate in library and system-wide committees, and professional activities outside of the university.
 
Sarah P’s comments:  NYU continues to expand despite criticism and some false starts (their Singapore campus has closed: see Anatomy of a Failed Campus for more info).  However no new venture is without risk and they appear to be forging ahead.  This could be a position where you could really help chart the future of the library however make sure to ask what your relationship is to NYU New York.  In the past they have stressed that you are not part of the regular faculty – meaning you cannot transfer campuses.
The Reference Librarian position is listed under ‘staff’ openings rather than faculty.
