Thank you for your interest in seeking employment or an internship with AMOCA.

Research shows that women and individuals from underrepresented backgrounds often apply to jobs only if they meet 100% of the qualifications. It is unlikely that any applicant meets 100% of the qualifications for a given role, and AMOCA welcomes and encourages applicants from all backgrounds to apply for positions at the Museum.

The following positions are accepting applications:

Director of Advancement

Position Description

Application Process

Please send a letter of interest and resume to: bgerstein@amoca.org. Position will be open until filled.

Mudmobile Art Instructor

Job Description

The Mudmobile program is a mobile museum program that focuses on creating equitable access to the arts by taking AMOCA’s programming out of the museum to meet students and teachers where they are. The role of the Mudmobile Art instructor is to: lead programs focused on teaching Visual Thinking Strategies; clay working techniques to K-12 grade students; and participate in educational and in-service activities including training sessions and feedback sessions as needed. Assignments may include day, evening, and/or weekend hours, but assignments will, for the most part, take place during a regular school day. Part-time assignments are scheduled on an as needed basis from the “pool” of approved teachers.

Pay Rate: Teachers will be paid for travel time from AMOCA to the program site, set up, instruction time, clean up, and return travel to AMOCA from the program site.


A successful candidate must have past experience teaching or leading groups of students through pre-planned activities and some experience working with clay. They must also be able and willing to travel from the AMOCA to teach on school campuses and in classrooms within a 60 mile radius from the museum.
Ability to drive a van, lift/move materials up to 50 pounds and pass a background check.

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.

All interested applicants should send a resume and letter of interest to:
