Why Work at the Smithsonian?
The Smithsonian is the guardian of some of our nation’s most valuable scientific, historic, and artistic treasures, and is a leader in research, innovation, and discovery. By working here, you would be making an important contribution to an Institution beloved by the American public and visitors from around the world.
The Smithsonian workforce includes dedicated men and women located in the Washington, D.C., area; New York City; Cambridge, Mass.; several other U.S. states; and the country of Panama. Positions range from astrophysicist to security officer, from art historian to zebra keeper, and from science educator to software developer. The Smithsonian seeks to attract and maintain a creative workforce that is representative of America’s diversity. We are consistently ranked among mid-size agencies as one of the “Best Places to Work.”
