      Chief Curator, Oriental Institute Museum
      The Oriental Institute
      University of Chicago
      Chicago, Illinois

      The University of Chicago's Oriental Institute is an internationally
      recognized research center for studying the archaeological and textual
      record of the ancient Near East. A primary unit within the Institute
      is its Museum, which houses over 300,000 registered objects from
      across the Near East.

      We seek applicants for the position of Chief Curator, who reports to
      the Director of the Oriental Institute and is responsible for the
      successful management of all museum operations, notably exhibits and
      collections management. The ideal candidate combines museum
      experience with a commitment to research and publication.

      The Chief Curator interacts regularly with the Institute's research
      faculty, who serve as its governing board. Candidates must have
      academic qualifications in a Near Eastern field of specialty, ideally
      in one of the areas covered by the Oriental Institute's collections
      (Egypt, Nubia, Mesopotamia, Syria-Palestine, Anatolia, Iran).
      Candidates must also have demonstrated leadership and project
      management skills enabling them to conduct and supervise curatorial
      tasks, exhibit development and grant writing. Based on the selected
      applicant's qualifications, a secondary academic appointment as
      Research Associate in the Oriental Institute will be considered.

      To apply for this position, please go to http://jobs.uchicago.edu,
