The Smithsonian Institution is the world’s largest museum, education, and research complex, with 21 museums and the National Zoo. This position is located within the Archives of American Art (AAA). Founded in 1954, the Archives of American Art fosters advanced research through the accumulation and dissemination of primary sources, unequaled in historical depth and breadth, that document more than two hundred years of our nation’s artists and art communities. The Archivist is responsible for applying professional and current archival standards, best practices, and methodologies to accessioning, assessing, arranging, preserving, describing, and transporting archival collections of personal papers and manuscripts.
