Title: Hoehn Curatorial Fellow for Prints
Department: Provost – University Galleries
Job # IRC12547
The Hoehn Curatorial Fellow for Prints will be a key contributor to the University Galleries’ team. Responsible for coordinating exhibitions in the Hoehn Family Galleries, advising on the growth of the University Print Collection, and supervising student interns, the Fellow will work 4 days a week on site, and will be offered one research day to conduct their own scholarship. A goal of the Fellow’s time at USD will be the production of at least one major exhibition with an accompanying publication. This must be an approved project that will advance the scholarly and museological reputation of the program as well as, ideally, the Fellow’s own professional career. The Fellow will also assist with other projects as assigned by the Director of University Galleries. This work inevitably requires flexibility in a fast-paced office environment and responsiveness to occasionally challenging situations with appropriate diplomacy.
