A law librarian's dream job?

The Harvard Law School Library is seeking a new Executive Director. There is no date or deadline on the job posting, but it was mentioned on the Library's blog on 23 November 2015.

The job description summary is fascinating for those of us who work in very different environments:

"The Executive Director oversees the operations and programmatic efforts of the largest academic law library in the world. In partnership with the Vice Dean of Library and Information Resources, she or he sets the budget priorities for the library and manages its approximately fourteen million dollar budget. The ED provides strategic planning for the library’s departments, services, and over fifty-person staff. As the administrative leader of the library, the ED manages relationships with the central Harvard Library staff working in the law library and their supervisors in the central Harvard Library. The Harvard Law School Library is home to the Library Innovation Lab and the successful candidate will be aware of advances in library services and technology and promote experimentation within the library. He or she also serves as a member of the Harvard Law School’s Senior Administrative team and represents the law school on university and national committees."
