Position: Bibliographer for Religion and Philosophy

From the Chronicle of Higher Education posting:

"The University of Chicago Library invites applicants for the position of Bibliographer for Religion and Philosophy. The Religion and Philosophy collections in the University of Chicago Library are among the strongest research collections in the nation. A full spectrum of library resources, from rare books and manuscripts to a full network of electronic resources, constitutes one of the distinctive strengths of the University of Chicago Library in meeting the diverse and changing needs of faculty, students and researchers in these fields.

The collections for which the Bibliographer is responsible support the research and teaching programs in the Divinity School, with its three committees and ten areas of study, and the Department of Philosophy. The Divinity School numbers some 36 faculty and over 300 graduate students of whom about 200 are in doctoral programs; the Philosophy Department counts 27 faculty with over 60 doctoral students. The University encourages interdisciplinary teaching and research and there is strong use of the religion and philosophy collections by faculty and students from area studies programs as well as many humanities and social science disciplines."
