Bard Graduate Center (BGC) is a graduate research institute in New York City. Our Gallery exhibitions, MA and PhD degree programs, research initiatives, and public programs explore new ways of thinking about decorative arts, design history, and material culture. All staff at BGC are a welcomed part of a supportive, intimate, and lively academic community.
This position works across two departments at BGC: Academic Programs and the Research Institute. Academic Programs is responsible for the administration of our MA and PhD programs, overseeing everything from the admissions process through to graduation and beyond, inclusive of both academic and student affairs. The Research Institute oversees visiting scholars, from administering our fellowship programs to working with faculty to bring in guest speakers, and manages research-based initiatives including an annual book prize and the Fields of the Future Institute.
The Coordinator of Research and Academic Events would join a small team working with faculty, students, and staff, as well as colleagues from US-based and international universities and museums. This is a full-time position that requires one to two evenings most weeks during the academic year and two to three weekends per year. The coordinator will provide administrative support to help plan and execute a wide range of departmental events. The Coordinator reports jointly to the Associate Director of the Research Institute and the Director of Admissions and Student Affairs.
