The NYU Health Sciences Library (NYUHSL) and the library’s Education and Clinical Support Team welcome applications from collaborative, organized, creative and adaptable candidates for the position of Clinical Collaboration Librarian, a new faculty appointment in the NYU Grossman School of Medicine. The Clinical Collaboration Librarian is essential in connecting healthcare providers with materials, services and ideas that drive and innovate the evidence-based care process, improve quality outcomes, and contribute to the culture of inquiry. Working as a core member of NYUHSL’s Education and Clinical Support Team, the successful candidate will strengthen existing partnerships and develop a new service portfolio to improve the use of biomedical and health information in clinical contexts. The successful candidate will work alongside healthcare providers. The role will include many traditional responsibilities, such as: consultation services, literature searching, developing instruction around library resources, active participation in clinically-relevant forums (morning report, rounds, and clinical conferences), and developing information “wayfinding tools” for clinical audiences.
The successful candidate also will move beyond traditional roles to create innovative ways of leveraging library resources that support clinicians throughout the health care system. NYU Langone Health is a complex health system comprised of multiple hospitals and ambulatory care practices. The Clinical Collaboration Librarian will most often engage with the clinical community in their preferred environments, typically outside the library and potentially at multiple different hospital locations across the area. The successful candidate will demonstrate approachability and a user-centric perspective in interactions with a variety of clinically-related users including stakeholders from: nursing, pharmacy, quality improvement and patient safety, clinical data and clinical IT, and physicians.
NYU Langone Health is a world-class, patient-centered, integrated, academic medical center, and is one of the nation’s premier centers for excellence in clinical care, biomedical research, and medical education. The Health Sciences Library supports the mission and vision of NYU Langone Health through forging meaningful connections with our users, providing innovative services, curating a top-tier digital collection, providing user-focused spaces, and committing ourselves to excellence and innovation.
Under the general supervision of the Lead of Programming and Clinical Support, the successful candidate will:

Provide small group, virtual, and classroom-based trainings;
