The University of Michigan Museum of Natural History, a unit in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, is currently closed and will re-open in 2019 in two stages with all new exhibits and programs in the new Biological Sciences Building. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of the once-in-a-century transformation of a beloved campus and community institution.
We are seeking an experienced exhibit designer/preparator to support our design-build contract work with an external exhibit firm, and to execute or coordinate numerous graphic design projects for internally-developed exhibit components, mostly using established design guidelines.
This full-time, two-year term-limited position will work closely with the BSB/Museum Project Manager to review detail design packages produced by the external exhibit designers and to ensure the quality of exhibit materials and fabrication. This will require periodic travel to Grand Rapids, MI and Rantoul, IL to visit fabrication workshops to review materials and construction techniques and quality.
The employee will also work closely with the Project Manager to maintain museum aesthetics and to oversee the onsite installation of exhibits developed by the external contractor. This will require ovesight of deliveries and onsite installation work to ensure quality, and coordination with LSA and BSB Facilities personnel.
There are no student positions available at this time.
