Job Description (if URL to posting not available). Please include instructions for how to apply.: The Barnard Archives and Special Collections are seeking applicants for the role of Assistant Director; this is a re-opened search that was paused a year ago due to COVID-19. We’re excited to hear from archivists who think critically about their work and have experience in creating inclusive strategies and structures for collections, access, and programming. Applicants should be excited to work in a small (but vibrant and agile) liberal arts library community and collaborate on all aspects of managing archives operations, with a particular focus on digital records. We are especially hoping to see applications from archivists of color.

The starting salary for this position is $75,000 and includes Barnard’s administrative benefits package, as well as professional development funding. This is typically (and eventually will return to being) a primarily in-person position, but archives work is currently happening mostly remotely, with the director on-site one to two days a week. The archives staff can collaboratively determine in-person workloads/schedules and public health precautions (in addition to campus-wide precautions, testing, etc.), and support is provided for staff working remotely (flexible work schedules, hardware, etc.). The start date for this position is July 1, 2021.

Applicants should submit their cover letters, resumes, and references through the Barnard jobs website ( but are invited to contact Martha Tenney (Archives Director, with any questions. Interested candidates should submit their applications by February 15, 2021 for priority review.
