Summer Research Fellowship Opportunity
The Museum of Jewish Montreal—a not-for-profit organization that collects, maps, and shares the history of Canada’s oldest Jewish community—is seeking qualified students to participate in our summer Research Fellowship program. Beginning May 24th and running through August 15th , the program is designed to help university students interested in pursuing museum careers acquire the skills they will need to work successfully in the cultural and heritage sectors. Participants will gain professional experience in curating exhibits, conducting oral history research, and leading guided tours around the city in English and/or French.
