Sarah P’s comments:  FYI:
I do not include every school library position on this blog, only those I find noteworthy and reputable.  In this case, Leysin is an established school in a fantastic location and this position is located on the new campus. However there are mixed reviews on ISR which I recommend reading before applying.  An interesting and admirable thing to note is that the Dean of Faculty has posted a response on ISR discussing some of the negative reviews.  I find this admirable since many administrators refuse to acknowledge the existence or importance (to their detriment) of this review site.

Though the work is hard because you will live in the dorms with the students, the salary is good, the technology offered fantastic, and if you are a skier – this is the opportunity to pursue!
