The Blaisdell Medical Library (BML) of the University of California, Davis, seeks a forward-looking and entrepreneurial professional to join our team in a two-year appointment as the Health Library Informaticist to advance efforts on the Sacramento UC Davis Health (UCDH) campus to improve discovery and use of biomedical and health data.

As a highly collaborative member of the BML team and dedicated to serving the needs of the health sciences community at the Sacramento campus, the incumbent will build and maintain alliances with others in the department as well as with other units (e.g., School of Medicine, Clinical and Translational Science Center, Health Informatics Program, Center for Data Science) to develop and coordinate projects.
