Our Team

The mission of the Museum of Natural and Cultural History (MNCH) is to enhance knowledge of Earth’s environments and cultures, inspiring stewardship for our collective past, present, and future.

Working at the MNCH is an opportunity to enjoy the best of the University of Oregon has to offer, while helping to advance public understanding of our world and build networks on and off campus.

We encourage applications from those who have been traditionally under-represented in higher education and museums, are ready to contribute to making museums more inclusive, who may have left the work force for family reasons, and who have skills sets earned through a variety of experiences.

This position works among the Central Administrative Team – the hub for the museum’s three divisions: public programs, collections, and research. This position works at the museum’s headquarters building at 1680 East 15th Avenue, but there is potential for remote work for the right candidate. The Central Administrative Team includes the fiscal coordinator, a marketing and communications specialist, an operations manager, and an administrative program assistant. The fiscal coordinator reports to the associate director for the museum. Most of the central administrative team are new to their positions in the last year and come to the museum from a variety of backgrounds. We support one another’s learning and development and have developed a strong orientation program. The museum team is innovative and believes in the potential for museum research and experiences to change lives.

What you will do as the museum’s fiscal coordinator:

The position has three main areas of work:
1.) working with UO’s office for budget and resource planning to develop, track, and report on an annual budget;

2.) coordinating internal accounts and business activities; tracking and reconciling financial information and creating reports that leadership and program managers use to make decisions, and;

3.) coordinating grant funds: working with University grants offices and museum staff to prepare, track, and report on grant funds.

The fiscal coordinator will be supported by a network of professionals across the University’s business offices to learn University systems and advance in financial management. The position also has opportunity for creativity and innovation in developing new styles of financial reports and using various systems to interpret finances.
