The Utah Division of State History located in Salt Lake City in the historic Rio Grande Station seeks to fill three temporary summer then part-time positions (July to possibly the end of October, 2013). 

Under the supervision of  Library & Collections Program staff, these employees will prepare collection storage rooms, produce preliminary registration/collection records and create case files for unprocessed and legacy artifact collections held by the UDSH.

The hourly rate is $12.00 per hour, no benefits.  Applicants must be able to lift 50 lbs., sometimes constantly;  and in combination with other employees lift and move oversize objects exceeding 50 lbs.  These employees will also be standing for extended periods of time.    

Preferential  consideration will be given to those who have completed, or are now engaged in a  graduate programs in museum studies, American material culture, curatorial studies, public history, American history or other allied programs where emphasis is placed on the study, description and care of historical objects.  Knowledge of Microsoft Suites and exposure to databases is also a plus.

These positions will remain open until three qualified applicants are selected; however, the UDSH wishes to fill these positions as soon as possible. Interested applicants should send their resume and cover letter to Doug Misner, Coordinator of Library & Collections Program, at
