The Great Valley Museum at Modesto Junior College is Seeking a Director

This is a reposting of my note from last month. The deadline for applying is Friday, Dec. 4! From personal experience, I can say that Modesto Junior College is a pretty nice place for a career.

The Science Community Center at Modesto Junior College is a monument to the importance of science education, with state-of-the-art labs and classrooms for biology, astronomy, chemistry, physics, and the earth sciences, as well as a fully equipped observatory, and the most technically advanced planetarium projector in the United States (seriously, it's the newest generation, and we were the first to have it installed). The Great Valley Museum has exhibits emphasizing the unique biology, paleontology and geology of the Great Valley, and includes the unique teaching tool called Science on a Sphere. Construction will begin soon on the Outdoor Education Laboratory in the open space north of the Science Building.

We are currently seeking a permanent director of the museum

The position announcement can be found here: If you are a talented person who knows and loves science, but can also navigate the depths and passages of a college and state bureaucracy as well as excelling at fundraising, you may be the person we need to lead our school and our valley into a new era of science excellence. Contact the Human Resources office at Yosemite Community College District if you have questions.
