Job Opportunity at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum

Just received an e-mail about a job available at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. The Silberman Foundation ITS Research Scholar is responsible, “under the supervision of the Director of the Center’s Visiting Scholar Programs and in consultation with the Center Director, for planning and implementing research workshops, symposia, seminars, and other outreach activities that guide, encourage, and enhance scholarly investigation of the more than 100 million digital images of documentation held by the International Tracing Service (ITS) that are being transferred to the Museum. These activities may involve cooperative efforts with other research and educational institutions or with ITS itself. The incumbent will also undertake assigned research and publication projects utilizing the rich documentary resource that the ITS archives represent.” For more information, click here.

Coordinator of Jewish Studies Sought

Welcome to a new My Machberet feature: job listings!

Today I learned that Queens College of The City University of New York is looking for a Coordinator of Jewish Studies for its Center for Jewish Studies. Salary range is indicated as $52,144-$67,092. This appears to be a writing-intensive job requiring a bachelor’s degree and four years of relevant experience; a master’s degree is preferred. A significant portion of the job seems connected with the Center’s Culture and Arts Program. You can read the full announcement here.

(What shall I call this [hopefully] recurring feature? For now, I think I’ll go with “J-Jobs,” as in “Jewish Jobs.” Any other suggestions?)
