Brown University’s Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology is accepting applications for four grant-funded Collection Assistant positions. 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. The successful candidate will have at least one year’s experience in a collection management or registration setting, together with a B.A./B.S. degree in Museum Studies, Anthropology, Art History, or related field. 

These are limited-term, full-time positions with benefits, funded through a four-year grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation (Grade 8). The Museum seeks candidates able to start in Summer 2019. Applications must be submitted through Brown University’s online hiring system by May 15, 2019 and must include a current resume, cover letter, and the names of three professional references.
