The Radcliffe Science Library is the main science library for the University of Oxford open to all members of the University and other members of the Bodleian. The newly refurbished RSL provides significantly enhanced facilities including more comfortable study spaces, IT facilities, group study rooms, training facilities, and a large lending and reference collection.

We are looking for an enthusiastic person who will support the research and teaching/learning needs of staff and students of the University Departments of: Earth Sciences; Computing; Materials; and Statistics as well as all associated teaching and research units. Support can be for one or more of the Departments based on agreement with the applicant.

You will support the Bodleian MPLS and MSD Libraries in the marketing and communication of library activities, services and resources in collaboration with colleagues. You will have a relevant qualification or practical experience of library work or other information support.

You will have experience of effectively publicizing and marketing of library services. Effective communication skills with experience of building collaborative working relationships are required. You will have experience of successful planning, problem-solving and decision-making. Excellent IT and digital skills and proficiency with relevant subject databases and other pertinent research tools are also essential.
