Opportunities at the MAP Academy

Our team is driven by the idea that art history is inherently interdisciplinary, and that any sustained engagement with the subject must encourage a sense of respect and understanding for the social worlds, communities, practices and cultures from which it emerges. We are currently based across India, the United States, Southeast Asia and Europe — our working hours are typically 9:00 am – 5:30 pm IST. We work remotely, yet collaboratively, and in addition to regular meetings and interactions, we host an annual offsite to align on our mission and values.

We strive to be responsible, respectful and considerate of each other as well as the people we serve, including our audiences, collaborators and the communities we write about. We try our best to uphold the following values in every aspect of our work:

  • Maintaining a belief in our work and its potential for positive impact
  • Creating a culture of constructive feedback and openness to discussion
  • Working responsibly and being accountable.

We are always interested in working with people with diverse backgrounds and perspectives. If we have current openings, you will find them below on this page, or you could write to us at hellomapacademy@map-india.org if you’d like to join our team.
