Please share this rare opportunity to lead the library of an internationally respected academic medical institution.


 Director, Distributed eLibrary

Established in 2001 as a partnership between Cornell University and Qatar Foundation, WCM-Q is part of Weill Cornell Medicine in New York and shares its mission of dedication to excellence in education, patient care and research.

The first medical school in Qatar and a pioneer of coeducation at university level, WCM-Q offers an integrated program of pre-medical and medical studies leading to the Cornell University M.D. degree. Teaching is by Cornell and Weill Cornell faculty, including physicians at Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) who hold Weill Cornell appointments.

WCM-Q is in its 14th year of operation and is seeking a candidate for Director of the Distributed eLibrary.

Reporting directly to Dean, the incumbent will partner with other informatics thought leaders at WCM and WCM-Q in imagining, creating, and managing a dynamic, modern information research facility to support education, research, and clinical care for the next generation and beyond. Will be responsible for the strategic planning, management, budgeting, marketing, and administration of library resources and services as well as the Archives of the Weill Cornell Medicine - Qatar Library. The Director will also be critical in leading the Library through this transformation to a next generation facility.

The successful candidate is required to have Masters in Library Science from a graduate library program accredited by the American Library Association, or a comparable information science related degree is expected. S/he should possess 10 years or more of professional experience, with progressive responsibility in an administrative and/or managerial/supervisory capacity in an academic or health sciences library or equivalent organization. Having a strong commitment to information literacy and to developing in students, faculty and clinicians the informatics skills required to practice evidence-based medicine is also a requirement.

Your application requires a CV, including the names and contact information for three references that agree to be contacted, as well as a covering letter. We encourage applicants to describe in their application how they feel they can contribute broadly to the goals of WCM-Q. For additional requirements and responsibilities, please refer to our website listed below. Candidates must be willing to relocate to Doha, Qatar for the duration of the appointment. Compensation will include a competitive salary with supplement for Foreign Service, housing and transportation.
