State Position Openings

The NC Museum of Natural Sciences is an energetic mission-driven place to work. No two members of staff have the same backgrounds. Indeed there are a myriad of credentials and career paths that assemble the expertise we need. Many staff began here as volunteers or interns or Junior Curators: it follows that just about every employee works closely with unpaid expertise. This, together with the fact that all of our human resources work in and around amazing research, education and citizen science opportunities, makes the NC Museum of Natural Sciences a very special place to start, grow and/or culminate a career.
