Supervisor Title (All entry and mid-level position supervisors should be qualified, professional archivists.)- Assistant Director of Archives and Collections

Position Type - Part-time, fellowship

Benefits - No

Hourly wage range - $20 - $25

The Queens Museum is looking for 3 Queens-connected collaborators for a paid, four-month project (May-August 2024) working closely with the Archives and Collections team. These individuals will help with the inventory process of our fine art collection. They will learn about and participate in cataloging, assist with researching and writing about the artworks, and be part of more conceptual conversations about why these items are important and what stories are missing as we consider what an art collection can be.

Participants will need to be on-site for 3 days per week (Monday–Friday, schedule TBD), and will be paid $25 per hour for their work (20 hours per week).

This is a learning opportunity and does not require specific schooling or training in advance. The best applicants will be detail-oriented, interested in art (or learning more about art), able to read/write in English, and happy to work with people on a team toward a shared goal.

There will also be an information session on Tuesday, March 26, 5-6pm, held on Zoom.

Here is a link to the announcement on our website, which includes all information related to the opportunity and the application: QM Archiving Project.

All applications are due April 5, 11:59pm.
