Interested applicants, scroll down and follow the link to apply.
The Museum of Durham History, which opened in October 2013, is a 21st-century museum that uses stories about people, places and things to foster curiosity, encourage further exploration and promote an understanding of diverse perspectives about the Durham community and its history. Our founding Executive Director helped us develop an innovative approach that packs a powerful impact from a footprint of just a few hundred feet. We now welcome 15,000 visitors per year, but what sets this Museum apart is its personal approach to history using an engaging community model. Thus, we seek a new leader who can build on her success and take us boldly into the future.
The Executive Director is the face of the Museum of Durham History to the community. As the primary administrative officer, the Executive Director oversees its general operation and is the visionary who strategically guides its future. The Executive Director must be extremely committed to the vision and mission of the Museum of Durham History and understand the Museum’s unique position and role in Durham’s communities. The ideal candidate for the position will possess and display a true desire to work in a place whose existence is based upon people and their stories.
