Call for Nominations: Director of the Penn Museum
January 30, 2007, Volume 53, No. 20

Nominations for the Director of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology are being solicited by the search committee (Almanac December 19, 2006).

The Director, who reports to the Provost, and—on a consultative basis—to the museum’s Board of Overseers, is responsible for the overall operation of the Museum, its commitment to research, education and public outreach, the quality of its exhibitions, and the maintenance of its collections. The successful candidate must above all be a leader, ideally with significant scholarly credentials in archaeology/anthropology. The Director must have experience managing complex institutions, be an excellent communicator with demonstrated ability to manage people effectively, and be an enthusiastic and proven fund raiser.

The Committee welcomes and encourages input and nominations from all members of the Penn community. Communications may be directed to Dr. Lynne Hunter, lynneh@pobox.upenn.edu or Mr. Malcolm Mackay, Russell Reynolds Associates, upennmuseum@russellreynolds.com.
