The Wolfsonian Metadata Squad are graduate-level FIU students tasked with strengthening our knowledge about the museum's vast holdings. Through online fact-checking and networking with experts around the world—an experience that introduces future work options in the GLAM sector (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums)—these research assistants verify and enrich Wolfsonian collection metadata while supporting our ongoing digitization efforts.
All Metadata Squad members receive:
- A tuition waver
- Insurance benefits
- $9,000 stipend sponsored by their academic department
- Access to our curatorial team and a suite of enrichment activities including department talks, hands-on activities, and career readiness sessions
Graduate assistants must maintain full-time enrollment at FIU (9 credit hours per semester) and commit to working 20 hours per week at the museum. Per FIU's academic guidelines, they cannot simultaneously hold any other position without written approval from the University Graduate School.
