Temporary position in exhibits department at the Rock Hall

Today I heard from my friend Christie Lucco, Director of Exhibitions at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, that she is currently seeking candidates for a Temporary Preparator/Exhibit Installer position, which will begin in February, 2010. Knowing that many museums have been forced to reduce staff during these tough economic times, I am posting the details and encourage everyone to share this information with those you may know who are currently looking for work.

  • The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, the world’s first museum dedicated to the living heritage of rock and roll music, is currently seeking candidates for the position of Temporary Preparator / Exhibit Installer. The individual will work with the exhibits team to design and prepare artifact mounts, and to install/deinstall collections-based exhibitions. This is a temporary, full-time (40 hours a week, Monday-Friday) job that begins on February 15, 2010 and ends on May 14, 2010. The wage for this position is $15.00/hr.
  • The qualified candidate must have previous experience with proper handling and care of museum artifacts, exhibition installation techniques, mount making and framing. Requires knowledge of basic carpentry tools and machinery and an understanding of materials used in the construction of museum exhibits.
  • Candidates must successfully pass a background investigation, drug screening and reference check. For consideration send resume and cover letter detailing your qualifications to: Christie Lucco, Director of Exhibitions, clucco@rockhall.org.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is an equal opportunity employer and a drug free workplace.
