Employment

The Wexner Center for the Arts is The Ohio State University's multidisciplinary, international laboratory for the exploration and advancement of contemporary art. We appreciate your interest in the center as a potential employer. The Wexner Center is committed to building an inclusive work environment that welcomes and values diversity. We strive to ensure that our work environment is as stimulating, inspiring, and diverse as the many artists, programs, and art forms we present.

Various employment opportunities are periodically available at the Wexner Center. Because the center is part of The Ohio State University, full-time job listings and applications are handled through the university's Office of Human Resources. As permanent positions become available, they are posted on the university's employment web site. Positions appear for one week with Wexner Center vacancies listed under under “department” as WCA and then the specific employing area within the center.

We also employ federally funded Ohio State work-study students, Ohio State graduate students, interns, paid part-time staff, and volunteers. These positions are not advertised on the Ohio State's Employment Services web site—information relating to select part-time opportunities can be found below, while volunteer and internship opportunities can be found here.
