Call for Submissions: Metropolitan Museum Journal

Invitation for submissions of original research on works of art in the Museum’s collection.

The Edito­r­ial Board of the peer-reviewed Metro­pol­i­tan Museum Journal invites submis­sions of orig­i­nal research on works of art in the Museum’s collec­tion. There are two sections: Arti­cles and Research Notes. Arti­cles contribute exten­sive and thor­oughly argued schol­ar­ship. Research Notes typi­cally present a concise, neatly bounded aspect of ongoing inves­ti­ga­tion, such as a new acqui­si­tion or attri­bu­tion, or a specific, reso­nant finding from tech­ni­cal analy­sis. All texts must take works of art in the collec­tion as the point of departure. 

As of 2019, the process of peer review is double-blind. Manu­scripts are reviewed by the Journal Edito­r­ial Board, composed of members of the cura­to­r­ial, conser­va­tion, and scien­tific depart­ments, as well as schol­ars from the broader academic community. 

Arti­cles and Research Notes in the Journal appear both in print and online, and are acces­si­ble via MetPub­li­ca­tions and the Jour­nal’s home page on the Univer­sity of Chicago Press website.

Operations Manager position open

Operations Manager — Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation, UC Berkeley

The oper­a­tions manager over­sees the Jacobs Institute’s digital infra­struc­ture, and works creatively to research and deploy new tech­nol­ogy solu­tions to support oper­a­tions and improve effi­ciency in both the maker­space and the broader Jacobs Insti­tute. The role’s primary respon­si­bil­i­ties include over­see­ing the soft­ware and data­bases that support maker­space access and safety train­ing. Other systems include equip­ment reser­va­tion, activ­ity dash­board, online mate­r­ial store, and billing for maker­space access fees and student mate­r­ial store purchases.

We are looking for a highly moti­vated candi­date, who has strong tech­ni­cal compe­tence paired with excel­lent project manage­ment skills, and is excited by the oppor­tu­nity to shape, deploy, and manage custom tech­nol­ogy solu­tions for UC Berkeley’s largest makerspace.
