Job: Liaison Librarian

7.25.16 –  Liaison Librarian
Monash University, Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia

Sarah P’s comments:   This is a repeat ad from April of this year. Monash U. is a branch of  this Australian University with eight campuses: six in Australia, one in Malaysia, one in South Africa, and a centre in Prato, Italy.  They appear to be growing and posted two positions in 2015 however I recommend reading the Glassdoor Reviews before deciding to apply.  Note the closing date of 8.15.16 which is is a short listing period.


Monash University is Australia’s largest university, with five local campuses throughout Victoria, as well as two international campuses – Malaysia and South Africa – and international centres in the People’s Republic of China, Italy and India. A unique alliance with the University of Warwick (UK) sits alongside an array of international collaborations with leading universities and corporations around the world, expanding the University’s global network.

Monash University Malaysia provides a distinctive international experience, with excellence in teaching and research. It engages with Malaysian and regional societies to improve the human condition. The campus is a dynamic community of scholars comprising staff and students, supported by collegial processes and comprehensive first-class infrastructure, and aspiring to intellectual achievement of the highest order. It continues to grow rapidly, and currently has more than 6,400 students and 770 staff.

Monash Malaysia is a registered private higher education institution in Malaysia. It employs all staff of the campus, and consequently line management is via the campus President and Pro Vice-Chancellor, who is also Chief Executive of the campus company.
