The FAM Education Fellowship is a 12-month, 20-hour per week appointment for a recent M.A. in museum studies, art education, or art history. The FAM Education Fellow will participate in the full range of art museum educational activities, with primary responsibilities for overseeing the translation of our Egyptian gallery labels into Spanish, writing and producing exhibition brochures, administering programs, and generally assisting the Director of Education. Opportunities to participate in docent training, public, school, and community programs, teacher workshops, accessibility issues, and exhibition interpretation will be made available whenever possible. The Education Fellow will report directly to Director of Education Laura Howick, and will work closely with the Director of Docents and other members of the FAM team. As the fellowship progresses, the Fellow will have increasing responsibilities and autonomy.
The Fellow must be able to work at least one weekend day a month during the school year. The Fitchburg Art Museum is committed to the future career aspirations of each Fellow. FAM staff will actively participate in job searches for Fellows with direct advocacy, references, and professional networks. Interested candidates should send a cover letter, CV, three writing samples (1-5 pages each), and the names and contact information for three references by email to Director of Education Laura Howick (firstname.lastname@example.org), and put “Education Fellowship” in the subject line.
