Brief Job Description
The Museum of Ontario Archaeology is seeking an Interpretive Planner who will coordinate with the Interpretation Committee towards the creation of new narratives that will guide the revitalization of the museum’s galleries, archaeological site, and programming. Through research and evaluation via the conduction of interviews, surveys, meeting facilitation and other forms of dialogue with external interest groups, the Interpretive Planner will develop a polyvocal blueprint that informs about the practice, application, relevance and interpretive stories resulting from archaeology in Ontario. This strategic revitalization of the MOA’s Interpretation Plan will connect more people, both residents and visitors alike, to the cultural heritage of the province of Ontario and the Great Lakes region.
This is a 12-month, full-time contractual position funded through the Seed Program of the Ontario Trillium Foundation. The project is best suited to a recent graduate with a post-secondary degree in anthropology, public history, or museum studies with a strong knowledge of Ontario archaeology or equivalent experience. The Interpretive Planner will start this position at 1600 Attawandaron Road in London, Ontario on November 11, 2019.
