Then great news: Hirsh Health Sciences Library is hiring! If you’ve ever checked out a laptop, charger, or markers, especially on evenings or weekends, you know that Hirsh relies on students like you to keep the desk open and operating smoothly.


We are looking for current graduate students who can check out materials (anatomical models and laptops), help patrons find books and articles (in the stacks and online), and support the Research & Instruction staff (through tasks like scanning articles for Interlibrary Loan). The schedule is fixed but flexible, with students working approximately 6-8 hours a week across two scheduled shifts (with the occasional opportunity to swap, drop, and pick up shifts). Pay is $15/hour. International students and work-study are eligible to apply. You’ll get the chance to work in a great environment alongside classmates and students from other program on campus, polish your research and communication skills, and get to know librarians, students, faculty, and Tufts Medical Center staff. 


Do we still have your attention? Great – then you should fill out an application! Applications are open now through Saturday, April 14th with interview beginning the week of April 15th. 


If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to hhslcirc@tufts.edu or stop by the desk to chat with your friendly, neighborhood librarian. All of us here at Hirsh look forward to working with you!
