Website Eiteljorg Museum of Am. Indians & Western Art

The Eiteljorg Museum is currently accepting applications for the position of Hoback Curator of Native American Art, History and Culture. The Curator of Native American Art, History, and Culture is an active scholar, contributing to the field through exhibits, public presentations, and publications. This includes working with the Native American collections; researching and developing exhibitions and related programs; and building strong, active, and ongoing relationships with Native communities. The endowed position is also responsible for implementing and managing the museum’s Great Lakes Initiative, a key element of the institutional strategic plan.

As an integral member of the curatorial team, the position supports and collaborates with other departments in fulfilling the museum’s mission “to inspire an appreciation and understanding of the art, history, and cultures of the American West and the Indigenous peoples of North America”. Candidates with a tribal affiliation are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be able to work legally in the United States. Starting salary $56,900.
