The University of California Libraries seek a Research Librarian for Visual Arts to join an enthusiastic staff in building a research library of excellence for a young and rapidly growing university ranked nationally in the top universities.  Research Librarians specialize in one or more subject areas and usually perform a combination of collection development, reference, and instructional duties.

The home library department of each Research Librarian will depend on which types of duties predominate, and will most likely be either the Collection Development Department or the Langson Library Reference Department.

The salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.  Preferred appointment level is $39,000 – $65,448 (Assistant Librarian I –Librarian I).  Consideration will be given to applicants with a wide range of years of experience, including qualified early career librarians.
