About 120 staff members work in twelve departments to carry out the mission of the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The jobs are a mix of federal and Smithsonian trust-funded positions, permanent and temporary, full-time and part-time. Our vacancy announcements are typically posted on the Smithsonian’s job opportunities website as well as the federal Office of Personnel Management’s USAJobs.gov website. Detailed application instructions can be found on each of these two sites.
Please keep in mind that your résumé should contain enough information for us to evaluate your skills and experience. In addition, you may need to address a number of quality ranking factors separately, which will determine whether you score high enough to be referred for consideration. You should respond with detailed examples or descriptions of your past experience and education as they relate to each factor.
