Jobs and Internships

The Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art opened its doors in November 2016. The capstone of a planned "arts district" at UC Davis' new front door alongside Interstate 80, the museum serves a primary audience of faculty and students as the lens through which it engages a broader audience. The museum’s program is steeped in the university's legacy of making, its physical presence in the Central Valley, and the university's role as a progenitor of conceptual art in California. 

The Manetti Shrem Museum is a start-up environment that requires flexibility, initiative, and the willingness and ability to problem-solve. Museum staff must be creative and enjoy working within a small, entrepreneurial team that is mission-driven, results-driven and community-oriented.
