Opportunities for Students

On Campus Student Employment

Student employment opportunities at the Grey Art Gallery are limited to enrolled New York University students. All student employment hiring is managed through Handshake. Active jobs can be viewed by filtering for Grey Art Gallery as a Division under NYU. Jobs should be applied to in Handshake and not by our contact email. For general NYU student on-campus employment questions, please reach out to The Wasserman Center for Career Development. For Grey Art Gallery specific questions please contact us directly at greyartgallery@nyu.edu.

 

Internships

NYU students are invited to apply for the Grey Art Gallery’s undergraduate and graduate internships which offer valuable experience in the everyday workings of a university art museum. Tasks may include assisting with research for exhibitions, cataloguing works of art, helping with public programs, consulting on the Grey’s social media, and giving gallery talks. Please note: Grey Art Gallery internships are reserved for students who are currently enrolled at NYU or accepted for a future term at NYU’s New York City campus. Undergraduate students applying for paid positions must be an NYU-affiliated student with an active Federal Work-Study award. If an intern’s NYU department offers academic credit for internships, we are glad to work with them in fulfilling the requirements.

Available positions will be posted on Handshake in the late spring and/or early summer for the following academic year. Active jobs can be viewed by filtering for Grey Art Gallery as a Division under NYU. Jobs should be applied to in Handshake and not by our contact email.

NYU Institute of Fine Arts students are invited to apply for the Grey’s annual Graduate Curatorial Assistantship. Graduate Curatorial Assistants may research upcoming exhibitions; help with loans, publications, files, press, studio visits, library, and correspondence; write educational texts and exhibit labels; and give gallery tours.

Hours are flexible, approximately 20 per week. Applications will open in the spring on Handshake.

 

The Student Friends Committee

The Student Friends Committee (SFC) is a working group that fosters student leadership by connecting the NYU student body to the Grey Art Gallery, NYU’s fine arts museum. We aim to provide a platform that allows students to form working relationships with campus and community partners, support emerging generations of cultural leaders, and learn more about contemporary and modern art.
