Exciting Career Opportunity for a Graduating Southeast Asia Ph.D. in the field of Librarianship
The University of Washington Libraries is offering an exciting career development opportunity for candidates seeking to pursue a career in administration and development of Southeast Asia library collections. Candidates holding a minimum of an M.A., preferably with a PhD or some doctoral credits, in any discipline with a focus on Southeast Asia are eligible to apply for this 2-year position. The successful candidate will work half-time in one of the country’s premier Southeast Asia collections while completing a 2-year MLIS professional library degree at the University of Washington Information School.
The position requires professional competence in any field of Southeast Asian Studies research and working knowledge of at least one Southeast Asian language. Applicants must apply and be accepted to the Master of Library and Information Science program at the Information School of the University of Washington. To be considered, applicants should apply by the May 1, 2022 deadline. Applications are being accepted now.
Candidates should also follow the application process through the University of Washington hiring site, submit a CV and a 2-page cover letter that includes the same vision for an innovative career as a Southeast Asia scholar in the field of library and information science that you submit as your personal statement in your MLIS application.
The successful candidate will receive a half-time appointment as a Graduate Research Assistant at the University of Washington Libraries, a fellowship stipend, tuition, and health benefits. Compensation is comparable to a half-time professional level position.
