Job: Associate Professor of Library Services

11/23/14 –  Associate Professor of Library Services
Palau Community College, Koror, Palau

Sarah P’s comments:  Palau is arguably one of the nicest places in the South Pacific.  The pay is low but that is true for the whole region.  This is an interesting position because it is an ‘opportunity for a librarian with experience in instruction to share expertise in library services and to serve as a leader in Palau’s library community‘.  Earlier this year the college advertised for a Director of Library Services (first 5/2 and then re-posted 9/22) however this appears to be a different position.  For anyone interested in gaining some Library Science teaching experience without needing a PHd, it could be a good opportunity.

Salary: $18,009 TO $27,725 Per Annum (depending on qualifications and work experience). Benefits include health and life insurance, 10/2 annual work schedule (10 months on and 2 months paid leave), and paid relocation expenses. Housing provided.

Summary of Description: Palau Community College seeks an experienced librarian to teach the college’s Library & Information Services Associates Degree Program. PCC is located in the Republic of Palau in the Western Pacific region and is an accredited post-secondary vocational and academic institution serving all of Micronesia.

Examples of Duties consist, but are not limited to: Responsible for teaching courses in accordance with the approved course outlines and developing curriculum for his/her respective division; maintain accurate attendance and counseling and advising students as needed. Participate in College committees and engage in College functions and activities.

Minimum Experience and Qualifications: Master’s or Bachelor degree in Library and Information Science or equivalent with 5+ years experience preferred in an academic or library with progressive levels of responsibility.
