RUPERT is a recently established project-based, trans-disciplinary and para academic educational program based in Vilnius, Lithuania. Each year it engages with a small number of selected participants to assist in developing their projects—exhibitions, art works, insides and outsides of publications, mental architectures, institutional designs, etc. Tutors, visiting lecturers, expertise and ideas are assembled around the participants and their projects to energize and inform them throughout the year.

In 2013 RUPERT is moving to a new building and supplementing its current activities with an international residency program and a public gallery. Hence the need for a director, somebody who could lead RUPERT’s current team and develop the institution’s new projects, as well as coordinate and build on all of its current activities. The director will be responsible for opening RUPERT’s educational program to international applicants in the upcoming years, programming the gallery’s activities and setting up 9 studio residencies for artists, researchers and practitioners.

We need someone seasoned enough to handle a considerably large institution, preferably with professional background in both curating and education. Furthermore, the job requires experience in administrative matters, fundraising, public communication and international networking among other things. Applicants should also have a broad range of interests in art, theory, architecture, design, publishing and beyond to oversee the work of young practicing professionals in these fields.

This is a full-time position for the duration of at least three years starting at the beginning of 2013. The director will be based in Vilnius.

To apply, please send your cover letter and CV to [email protected] before 15th of October, 2012. Selected candidates will be then asked to attend further selection stages in November, 2012.
