LIBRARIAN (DATA SYSTEMS) & LIBRARIAN @ Air University Library (Montgomery, AL)

21 May 2020 8:26 PM | Jennifer Nabzdyk Todd (Administrator)

Air University Library has two GS-11 Librarian position openings.  Both of these are unit supervisors in the Information Systems & Technical Services Division.  

The Air Force uses a standardized position description which makes many jobs seem identical when you look at the “Responsibilities” section of the position announcement, which is why I’m providing additional information.   The items you see listed under “Responsibilities” are identical for every librarian, aside from the amount of weight each duty has.  Unfortunately, when you see an online position announcement, you don’t see which duties are weighted the highest.

Both of these positions are for librarians, GS-1410 is the job series.  They are both grade 11 which has a salary range of $64,009 to $83,210 per year.  Both of these positions require the ability to obtain and maintain a Secret Security clearance.  Please carefully review the “This job is open to” section of the job announcements.  There are numerous categories of eligibility to apply.
