The Center for Jewish History (NYC | cjh.org) is the collaborative home to five in-house partners – American Jewish Historical society, American Sephardi Federation, Leo Baeck Institute, Yeshiva University Museum, and the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. When the Center opened its doors eighteen years ago, it made a commitment to preserve the collections housed within its walls and make them accessible to scholars, students, and diverse audiences by implementing a unique, shared services model across all five partners.
The Center for Jewish History seeks a part-time Oral Historian for a term ending June 30, 2019, with the possibility of extension. Reporting directly to the Senior Manager for Collection Services, the Oral Historian will be responsible for collecting oral histories from the New York Iranian Jewish immigrant community. The successful applicant will join a dynamic team of forward-thinking and professionally engaged Center staff who provide support for archival projects and other access-oriented services for the collections held by the five partner institutions of the Center. The part-time position offers a competitive hourly rate for 15 hours weekly.
Review of applications will begin immediately. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Send cover letter, resume, and three references to Sarah Hopley, Senior Manager for Collection Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org. No phone calls please.
The Center for Jewish History is committed to diversity and inclusion. Qualified individuals who bring diverse perspectives to the workplace are especially encouraged to apply.
