JOB: Instruction Program Coordinator, Sonoma State University

Located just 50 miles north of San Francisco in beautiful Sonoma wine country, the University Library in the Jean and Charles Schulz Information Center offers a dynamic learning environment, valuable information resources, and a state-of-the-art automated retrieval system. We are seeking a motivated and creative professional with experience to lead the Library’s Instruction Program. This professional will be integral in maintaining and forwarding the Library’s mission of student retention, graduation, and life-long learning.

The ideal candidate will relish the challenge of engaging first-year students while promoting new programs and experimenting with new pedagogical approaches. An individual with an entrepreneurial spirit who can thrive in an always “beta” world is highly desired. Likewise, supervisory skills, the ability to work in a shared decision-making environment, and a sense of humor and fun are key.

As a faculty member, librarians are expected to take a leading role in campus activities and governance. Scholarship plus service to the campus and community are expected. This position requires an ALA-accredited MLS, MLIS, or equivalent, and three years of progressively responsible instruction experience.

Rank: Senior Assistant Librarian. Salary range: $57,060-$72,096, commensurate with qualifications and experience.
