    Esteemed Museum Colleagues,

    Later this spring the President, Marine Corps University, will begin a nationwide search for the new permanent Director of the National Museum of the Marine Corps (NMMC) and Curator of the Marine Corps.  We're asking you to share this Email with qualified and motivated candidates.  Over the coming weeks, we'll post teasers on the AAM, VAM, SEMC, and MuseumJobs sites, with directions to watch for the formal announcement on  

    This civil service position is responsible for leading over 400 volunteers, staff, and Marines during a 364-day work year.  Open since 2003, NMMC is accredited by AAM and hosts nearly a half million visitors per year, including over 60,000 formal school students.  NMMC's programming includes a teacher in residence, and a wide range of special and family events, plus a couple hundred professional military education visits.  Our relatively new distance learning program provides instruction for students as far away as Okinawa and Germany.  We are constantly growing and trying new things to better support our northern Virginia community, students in grades K-12, members of the US and foreign military, and the general public.

    Our goal is to hire an experienced museum professional whose proven leadership can take the Museum to the next level.  Located at Quantico, VA, on a 135-acre campus, NMMC houses historical galleries that cover the Corps' history from 1775 to 1975, and topical galleries such as Making Marines, Children’s Gallery, and the Combat Art Gallery, We're currently working on a number of new galleries, including historical galleries that tell the story from 1976 to present, a Hall of Valor that honors the Medal of Honor and the Marines who earned it, and a large Changing Gallery.  You can learn more about NMMC at

    NMMC is fortunate to be partnered with an engaged and robust 501.c.3, the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation.  MCHF's generous enhancements enable our government Museum to do things that aren't possible with appropriated funds.  You can learn more about MCHF at  

    Compensation for this GS-1015-15 billet ranges from $137,849 to $166,500.  

    Thanks for helping us to share this as broadly as possible, and keep an eye on  Use Curator, Museum, 1015, and Quantico as your keyword searches.
