Employment Opportunities

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 posted on the Smithsonian Institution Web site as well as the Office of Personnel Management's Web site.

The Smithsonian site gives detailed information on how to apply for jobs. Keep in mind that your resume 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.
