Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology

Now Hiring: Two Collections Assistants

Brown University’s Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology is accepting applications for two grant-funded Collection Assistant positions. These are full-time, term-limited, 3.5-year positions with benefits, funded through a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Collection Assistants will provide direct care of the museum’s archaeological and ethnographic collections during a phased relocation to a new facility. Collection Assistants will join a project team consisting of a registrar, curators, photographer, conservator, and contracted art handlers to inventory, document, rehouse, and move the collection.

Successful candidates must be able to start in early 2020 and have full-time post-internship experience in a collection-management or registration position within an institution with comparable collections. MA or MS in Museum Studies, Anthropology, Archaeology, or Studio Art, or a related field is preferred, as well as experiences with art handling and collection moves.

Applications are only accepted through Brown University’s online hiring system. Submit a current CV, letter of interest, and the names of three referees. Complete applications must be received before December 20, 2019 for consideration.
