Current Opportunities

Chief Executive Officer

Full Time

The Museum of Science & History (MOSH) inspires the joy of lifelong learning by bringing to life the sciences and regional history.

MOSH IS ON THE MOVE! In 2020, the MOSH Board of Trustees decided to move MOSH to the Shipyards, located on the Northbank of Downtown Jacksonville. In August 2021, the Board selected nationally recognized architectural firm, DLR Group to design an iconic building, estimated at $100M+ to complete. Recent independent, community-based studies have revealed enthusiasm and support for MOSH’s plan to envision a future beyond our current building. Educational themes will blend the cultural, natural, and innovative fabrics of the region. Planned together with renowned architects and exhibition designers, the MOSH Genesis project will enable MOSH to meet the needs of Northeast Florida, Southeast Georgia and beyond for many years to come.

MOSH seeks an accomplished nonprofit/museum leader who has a compelling vision for the power of non-traditional learning environments.
