Assist with researching drawings in the museum’s collection, including provenance, exhibition history, and verifying attribution; maintain organization of research and object files; image research and managing comparative illustrations for publication; potentially writing catalogue entries for publication. The position is flexible, and will run from approximately June through October, 14 hours/week, potentially divided between time on- and off-site.

Education/Experience Requirements:
M.A. in art history or currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program (preferably with some experience with works on paper). One to two years of museum experience and reading knowledge of French and/or German are required. A high level of professionalism and discretion are required, along with excellent organizational and research skills, and demonstrated writing abilities.
