About the University:
The University of Oregon is one of only two Pacific Northwest members of the Association of American Universities and holds the distinction of a “very high research activity” ranking in the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. The UO enrolls more than 20,000 undergraduate and 3,600 graduate students representing all 50 states and nearly 100 countries.
The University of Oregon is guided by a diversity framework that involves a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion for all students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members. The UO’s 295-acre campus features state-of-the-art facilities in an arboretum-like setting within the traditional homelands of the Kalapuya people.
The UO is located in Eugene, a vibrant city of 167,000 with a wide range of cultural and culinary offerings, symphony, opera, jazz, and theatrical venues; a pleasant year-round climate; and a community engaged in environmental and social concerns. The campus is within easy driving distance of the Pacific Coast, the Cascade Mountains, and Portland.
About the UO Libraries:
The University of Oregon Libraries is an essential partner in the University’s educational, research, and public service mission. With five locations on the Eugene campus and branches at UO Portland and at the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology, the Libraries offers many flexible, service- and technology-rich environments for our users’ research and learning needs. The UO Libraries is committed to supporting and enhancing the diversity of the university community, providing a culturally inclusive environment where diversity of thought and expression is valued and respected, and disrupting systemic inequalities. With a focus on equity in service, we strive to create a powerful learning community, a welcoming space where faculty, students, and patrons of all ages and cultural and ethnic backgrounds can access the information necessary to achieve their personal and professional goals.
Our mission is to actively support the student learning experience, enable the creation and stewardship of knowledge, and contribute to advancements in teaching, research, scholarship, and public service. We value intellectual freedom, user-centered service, evidence-based approaches, transparency, innovation, teamwork, diversity, and integrity.
The University of Oregon Libraries is the only Association of Research Libraries (ARL) member in Oregon. The library is a member of the Orbis Cascade Alliance, SPARC, Center for Research Libraries, DuraSpace, the Council on Library and Information Resources, Coalition for Networked Information, EDUCAUSE, and other major organizations.
About the Data Services Department:
The Data Services department is an essential component in the Libraries’ framework for research support and enterprise academic technology. The department provides a central service point for library-situated data services, including but not limited to the Libraries’ provision of numeric and spatial data for teaching, learning, and research; data production; data education; and research data management (RDM). The department facilitates data management through the data lifecycle and provides services related to specialized data labs and programs, e.g., services and training related to research data management, and the Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) membership. The Aerial Photography Research Services (APRS) unit and map collections are also important components of the department’s portfolio. The department’s work requires close collaboration with other library departments and UO divisions, especially the UO’s Office of Research and Innovation and Information Services, the Libraries’ Research and Instructional Services (RIS), Digital Scholarship Services (DSS), and Collection Services departments.
We encourage applications from those whose experience has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion, from individuals who have been historically marginalized and currently underrepresented in higher education, individuals who may have taken time off for family reasons, or who have achieved excellence in pathways outside of higher education.
