Science Museum Seeks Head

Seeking a director of management/fundraising for the Great Valley Museum. Here’s a description of the job: http://www.modbee.com/2014/01/14/3134420/modestos-great-valley-museum-seeks.html

Formal job posting: https://yosemite.peopleadmin.com/postings/991

The museum is scheduled to open this spring, and some of the outdoor displays connected to the college (Foucault pendulum, parabolic fountains) are already open to the public. I’ve also seen the state-of-the-art planetarium whose projector is the newest in North America, Science-on-a-Sphere, and other techie displays that were installed just this year. Very cool!

While this forum isn’t necessarily the best fit for Scientific (vs. Technology) personnel, if you have connections to people who might be interested/qualified for this, please feel free to re-post or disseminate this information. They are seeking candidates from far and wide to get a “best fit”.

Thanks for posting. I have a good friend finishing up his grad degree at N’western that’s very interested in visual and interactive scientific displays. Do you know more about the position or who to contact directly? PM me if you’re involved in the search process.

I’m not on the search committee, but I can probably get your friend started with basic information, as I teach at the college, and my office is in the Science Community Center (museum) building. Check your PM.

This position had been filled, but may be open soon. Email me if you or someone you know is interested.
