Posting Close Date: 06-Dec-2021
Who We Are
The CU Museum of Natural History fosters exploration and appreciation of the natural environment and human cultures through research, teaching, and community outreach. We provide academic training for graduate students in Museum and Field Studies; build, conserve, and interpret research collections; and offer exhibits and educational programs for the University and the public.
Founded in 1902, the Museum employs more than fifty faculty and staff as curators, collection managers, public program specialists, designers, instructors, and administrators. The Museum maintains collections in all fields of natural history as well as human history. The Museum is divided into sections, which administer specific parts of the collections: Anthropology (Archaeological and Ethnological materials), Botany (Plant collections), Entomology (Insect collections), Paleontology (Fossils and associated materials), and Invertebrate Zoology (Invertebrates other than insects) and Vertebrate Zoology.
The Museum's collection has grown from a handful of objects to nearly five million. The CU Museum of Natural History has the largest natural history collection in the Rocky Mountain region. The museum was first accredited in 2003 and received re-accreditation from the American Association of Museums in 2019, an achievement earned by less than 5% of museums in the U.S.
The Museum has five exhibition galleries where visitors can explore natural and human history through engaging and interactive displays. Our youngest visitors enjoy Family Corners where everything is hands-on.
