Compensation: $90,000 - 100,000 with the possibility of a higher salary for an exceptionally qualified candidate
The University of Michigan Museum of Natural History is seeking an Associate Director for Operations & Revenue to join our senior leadership team. This is a new position created in response to the significant growth of the museum in its new facility. The new hire will provide leadership in the ongoing development of operational practices and departmental teams as the museum adjusts to the new facility and expanded needs. This is a new position at the museum and will work closely with the Museum Director to establish the new role.
The museum opened its new facility in 2019 in the award-winning, state-of-the art Biological Sciences Building (BSB). The new museum puts science on display, highlights and supports current U-M research, and teaches science communication skills to faculty and students at all levels. With more frequently changing and interactive exhibits, a spectacular new Planetarium & Dome Theater, two public hands-on labs, and all new programs serving the campus, preK-12 students, and the public, the new museum is an exciting and important new STEM educational resource for the campus and the larger community. More information about the museum’s mission, vision, strategic plan, and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility goals is available here. The Museum of Natural History is administratively situated in the Division of Undergraduate Education in the University of Michigan’s College of Literature, Science and the Arts.
More than 200,000 guests visited the new museum in the 11 months we were open prior to closing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The museum was completely closed for eight months and will expand its public hours to five days a week in January 2022. The Associate Director for Operations & Revenue will contribute to the continued gradual reopening to the public in compliance with University’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
We look forward to welcoming a new colleague who has great organizational and people skills as well as expertise in overseeing a public facility, managing financial and HR activity, and developing revenue centers. A commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace is essential, as is a passion for promoting a STEM landmark that is welcoming and accessible to all.
