About the Chicago Academy of Sciences and its Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum
Celebrating nearly 160 years of science exploration and education, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum is the public face of the Chicago Academy of Sciences. The Chicago Academy of Sciences was founded in 1857 as Chicago’s first museum dedicated to educating Chicagoans about nature and science through the preservation and display of native specimens, classroom activities, and dissemination of scientific knowledge.
Today, the Museum distinguishes itself through extensive involvement in schools, providing more hands-on science instruction than any other museum in Chicago, and the opportunities it provides for visitors to experience nature up close in exhibits such as its iconic Judy Istock Butterfly Haven. The Museum also continues the Academy’s tradition of research, conservation and education about nature in the Midwest through participatory exhibits and programs, educational outreach and ongoing scientific activity. Its collections, due to their age and type, are among the most important in the region.

This position will be responsible for all human resources activities for the Museum’s staff of 60+ full time and part time employees. The Human Resource Manager will work closely with the Museum’s President & CEO, Director of Finance, and interface directly with all departments within the Museum.
