Indiana University Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology seeks a dynamic and forward-thinking cross-discipline museum professional to serve as Executive Director of the Indiana University Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (IUMAA).

Having just completed an $11M renovation, the new IUMAA combines two previous institutions on the Indiana University (IU) Bloomington campus, the Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology, and the Mathers Museum of World Cultures, both of which cared for and presented world-class collections of material culture. IUMAA is also entrusted with the stewardship of Angel Mounds State Historic site following the Museum’s complete repatriation of native remains and an accompanying initiative to catalogue and preserve a trove of objects in ongoing conversation and collaboration with tribal nations and their descendants. The Museum is slated to open to the University and the public in the Fall of 2023.

Salary: $145,000 – 165,000 per annum (commensurate with experience). The position is based in Bloomington on the IU campus and may allow for some remote flexibility as the Executive Director becomes more familiar with the role. Residency in the surrounding area, preferably Bloomington, would be expected.

Nominations are welcome.

To Apply: In confidence, email 1) a letter expressing interest in this position and giving brief examples of past related experience; 2) a résumé or CV; 3) names of three references with contact information. Submit application by January 28, 2023 to retained search firm: Suzanne Tan, Museum Search & Reference, [email protected]. References will not be contacted without prior authorization.
