The Rockefeller Archive Center seeks a tech‐savvy, user‐oriented, and self‐motivated individual to join the RAC Digital Program in the position of Assistant Digital Archivist. This is a full‐time grant‐funded position supported by the Ford Foundation for a minimum period of three years. Reporting to the Assistant Director, Head of Digital Programs, the Assistant Digital Archivist will provide leadership and expertise for a project that will build a sustainable, user‐centered, and standards‐compliant infrastructure to support the ongoing acquisition, management, preservation, and discovery of digitized and born‐digital records.
The Digital Programs Team is looking for someone who has an interest in library and archives UX and project management, with a commitment to learning and growing throughout their entire career. We think we’re working on some pretty cool projects, and we’d love to have someone else on board that shares our drive to better ourselves and our institution through our work. We also really like collaborating with other institutions in the area and getting involved professionally. We’re a small, close-knit team, so working together is a big part of our values and workflows, but we think we’re okay people to hang out with.
The RAC is located just north of NYC in Sleepy Hollow, NY; a short trip by train from the city (~45 minutes). You’d get to work in a really cool, beautiful Rockefeller mansion from the 1960s (seriously, the grounds are really nice).
