Position Description

Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh is a catalyst for knowledge and exploration; a community leader in educational outreach; and a collector, guardian, and presenter of cultural and scientific collections and ideas. Its four distinctive museums—Carnegie Museum of Art, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Carnegie Science Center, and The Andy Warhol Museum—reach more than 1.1 million visitors and participants, on- and offsite annually.

CMP is currently exploring a variety of initiatives that would leverage its unique history and assets for the benefit of its audiences. Working as part of CMP’s Department of Strategic Initiatives, the Senior Program Manager will play a crucial role in advancing these initiatives with the goal of developing at least two “Nexus Projects” that further the museums’ missions, foster cross-museum collaboration and co-creation, and set new standards in exploring the intersections of art and science. The ACLS Public Fellow will work with the CMP ideation team, external facilitators, and other relevant stakeholders to develop a nimble and flexible process for moving from an exploratory mode to the realization of innovative, tangible outcomes.
