Christie's Old Master department in New York is looking for two new people. First, a Specialist, which, says the application site:

[...] is a transactional business getter, responsible for bringing in business, selling both at auction and by private sale, and developing and managing client relationships internationally. They are also responsible for writing-up and researching auction lots at and around sale deadlines. This role requires a high level of expertise across the broad category of Old masters and excellent internal inter-personal skills with a willingness to share information and communicate proactively.

The salary range is $80k-$120k, and by the look of it, quite a few benefits too. 

The second is a Cataloguer:

Cataloguing, researching and note writing for lots in the New York Old Masters online Day and Live Evening sales, Private sales and Collections/House sales.

Salary range, $47k-$52k.

Meanwhile, the Metropolitan Museum in New York is looking for an Associate Curator in the European Paintings Department:

The Department of European Paintings seeks an ambitious, creative, forward-looking art historian specializing in Northern Renaissance paintings with a demonstrated interest in Italian painting, as well. In this role, the Assistant/Associate curator will be responsible for the research, display, study, growth, and care of this area of the European Paintings collection. The ideal candidate will be passionately interested in paintings and in shaping the department’s future for the next generation and in keeping to the Museum’s mission of public engagement and outreach by creating exhibitions, and studying and growing this area of the collection.

More details here. The salary range for this post is $72k-$95k. Which is somewhat more generous than the Assistant Curator role at the V&A in London which I posted yesterday, at £25k-£27k.  

If you're applying, good luck!
