Exhibition Intern (Winter) – The Jewish Museum of Maryland seeks an intern to assist with an upcoming exhibition project. The exhibit will replace our current core exhibition and will encompass more than two centuries of Maryland Jewish history. It will use our extensive collection of 10,000 objects of everyday life to trigger conversations about how the past continues to impact our lives today and will connect the Jewish immigrant experience with the experience of other immigrant groups, both historic and contemporary. We are currently in the preliminary phase of exhibit planning and intern tasks include searching the JMM collections for relevant artifacts (including photographs, documents, objects and oral history interviews), conducting research and participating in team meetings to brainstorm content and design. Hours are flexible.
To apply, please send cover letter and resume to Deborah Cardin at firstname.lastname@example.org. Application deadline is December 1, 2015.

Responsibilities could include: staffing the front desk, answering phones, giving tours of our two historic synagogues, assisting in the Museum Shop, developing visitor surveys, updating online calendars and writing blog posts. The intern should have some customer service experience, be comfortable with public speaking and have a positive attitude.
Time expectation: 15 hours per week. Flexible on schedule. College undergraduate or graduate student preferred. The internship is unpaid, but may be used for academic credit.
