2/20/15 – Library positions with the Qatar National Library
Sarah P’s comments: The Qatar National Library has the following positions listed as open (see below). They are part of the Qatar Foundation which is reviewed on Glassdoor. Applicants who are fluent in Arabic will be given preference. Also, there are two positions which have been listed on IFLA which do not appear to be on this list: Information Services Librarian Biology & Chemistry and Copyright & Licensing Librarian.
Jobs regularly appear and are filled but the process is vague and the length of time to hire very slow. Salaries are good and Doha is safe but recently has been trending toward becoming conservative, for example, cutting off liquor licenses for some places, increasing the segregation of men from women, etc. If you are interested in the Middle East, however, these are cultural differences you will need to accept.
