Skirball Cultural Center

Los Angeles, California


Skirball Research Fellow, Museum

The Skirball Cultural Center seeks to engage a two-year Research Fellow to explore the ongoing and historic connections between Black and Jewish communities, both nationally and in Southern California. The fellowship’s focus will be on conducting an extensive historiography and literature review and identifying contemporary scholars, artists, collections, and institutions whose artifactual holdings or work reflect these histories. Reporting to the Chief Curator, the Research Fellow also will develop four exhibition concepts that align with the Skirball’s mission as a Jewish American cultural institution that celebrates discovery and hope, fosters human connections across generations and communities, and inspires visitors to help build a more just society.

Contract Timeframe: Summer 2024 through Summer 2026

Compensation: Research Fellow will receive a monthly stipend of $4,500-$5,800, based on prior academic and professional experience. Additional funds available for travel research.
